HEAV’s Homeschool Mentor Program for
High School Parents

The 2022-2023 school year will be a pilot program focusing on homeschooling through high school.

“Homeschooling through High School.” The sound of that is enough to make many parents panic. But really, it is not as impossible as you think! And you don’t have to figure it out alone.

You CAN have the knowledge and confidence you need to successfully homeschool through high school!

 Do you wish you

  • Were sure your child will be prepared for his future?
  • Even knew what direction he wants to go?
  • Knew the simple answers to questions like transcripts and diplomas?
  • Were confident your high school plan was “right?”
  • Had a sounding board with a parent a step ahead of you?

Get the Confidence You Need.

It’s true — even if you have years of experience homeschooling, the thought of “high school” can make you feel stressed—or even a bit of panic.
