Homeschooling Works! The Girl is Off To College In The Fall

She has been homeschooled since birth.
Never even did preschool.

She's already got 15 credits of college under her belt and has been accepted by 3 of the 4 colleges that she applied to: Syracuse University, SUNY Oneonta and University of New Haven.

Why those schools?
They have the major she wanted.
Music Industry.

She's chosen University of New Haven, because they have a terrific program and she was awarded a really great scholarship from them too.

We went to accepted students day on Friday and she enrolled.

We are of course excited and proud, and this is bittersweet as she is the last out of the nest.
Meanwhile son number two is graduating from Wentworth Institute of Technology in August with a degree in Computer Networking and he already has a job offer.
Our oldest graduated from Boston University and is happily living and working in CT.

Yes, homeschooling works.

It's great when they know what they want and they pursue it.

We are just in the beginning of homeschooling my 4 1/2 year old daughter and it's so great to hear about the success stories!

Congratulations! Quite an accomplishment for your daughter AND you :)

Our #3 also finishes homeschooling this spring and it is indeed bittersweet...we're fortunate that we still have #4 here, so we're not done homeschooling yet.

Congrats to your daughter, Judy!

I agree. Homeschooling works.

Most likely all of your children have absolutely no social skills and have either experimented heavily with drugs, alcohol or sex once they were no longer under your thumb. You have done huge damage to your child's future because of your own arrogance, that you could be a better teacher than a professional teacher. Because of your self fears and inadequacies your children will not be successful in life and only have head in cloud dreams that they will never achieve.

Anonymous you are so incredibly ignorant. That is unfortunate and very sad for you.

My kids are fine thanks. None have the problems you cite, nor were they ever "under my thumb". They had a much better education at home than their peers did - and they have told me so since they have many many friends from all walks of life and life experiences.
And actually, they had more friends when they homeschooled then when they did when they were in government school.

My kids had no problem getting into thew college of their choice, and they received an excellent education while homeschooling.

I have no self fears nor do my kids, two of which are successful college graduates with jobs! and one who is doing quite well in college now. They are living their dreams and living in freedom pursuing wonderful lives.

Sad that you don't know anything about homeschooling except your own ignorant assumptions.
