Middle School--High School 

Below you will find a discussion outline for each of the four sessions being offered Tuesday and Wednesday. There will be a back and forth flow  between the topics as we move from the middle school years to creating a high school transcript.

As we take a look at home educating older students, you'll get a handle on what to expect of your children as you discover and enjoy the freedom you have in Floirda to design a program that uniquely fits each one of your young adutls. 

You're not on an assembly line or a cookie cutter journey. I believe your goal, along with your children as partners, is to discover and develop their gifts and talents as the process of education unfolds in your family.

On Wednesday, there will be a seminar for High School and Beyond Alumni as well as an afternoon dedicated to scheduling private consultations.

I look forward to meeting and assisting you to Think Outside the Box, and finish well.

The time spent together will be focused specifically on the needs of your family. Prior to your appointment, it is necessary to fill out a consultation questionnaire. This will enable us to make the best use of our time and afford you the greater benefit.

2. Compiling the Home School Transcript: $300.00
   (4 hour appointment plus Transcript E-book)

This process requires a cooperative effort with the home school family and me using primarily e-mail and phone communication plus private sessions if needed. It includes the workbook/e-Book How to Create a Home School Transcript~ Your Way~ plus 4 hours of time for me to compile the final product.

** Note: If more time is required due to the uniqueness of the student's home school program and the assistance needed by the parent to supply me with information, an additional charge of $30 per hour is assessed.
Discounted price for 2009 workshop participants: $175.00
Payment may be made with registration or at the day of the workshop.

Please Note: each of the above packages will begin on Wednesday, using one hour.

3. Phone Consultation Options

        30 Minutes: $25.00            45 Minutes: $40.00            60 Minutes: $50.00

Sometimes the need is to talk with someone about concerns, roadblocks and hurdles in your home school journey. Brainstorming with an experienced home school veteran  that’s "been there, done that" would be beneficial. Finding answers and information can be frustrating and difficult even though you’ve contacted support group members and searched the Internet. Consider a phone consult. Chose a block of time that you think will fit your needs.

Discounted price for 2009 workshop participants:
30 Minutes: $15.00    45 Minutes: $25.00      60 Minutes: $35.00

Payment may be made with registration or at the day of the workshop.
