Important changes to the FAFSA 2017 form are as follows:

1. The 2017–18 FAFSA will be available earlier.
You can file your 2017–18 FAFSA as early as Oct. 1, 2016, rather than beginning on Jan. 1, 2017. The earlier submission date will be a permanent change, enabling you to complete and submit a FAFSA as early as October 1 every year.

2. You’ll use earlier income and tax information.
Beginning with the 2017–18 FAFSA, you’ll be required to report income and tax info from an earlier tax year. For example, on the 2017–18 FAFSA, you—and your parent(s), as appropriate—will report your 2015 income and tax info, rather than your 2016 income and tax info.

High School Students with Hearts Toward Christ

A homeschooling mother recently shared a story about her 17-year-old son who had a job stocking grocery shelves. Within a few months of starting his job, he was awarded two promotions. Sadly, this was not the case for most of his co-workers. What made this boy so remarkable to his supervisors?

Choosing a Career Path

One aspect of raising our children which becomes an important focus in the final year or two of high school is that of choosing a career path. While many of our children will not have a clear direction on a lifelong calling during their teens, we can still help them to develop the gifts God has given and begin to explore appropriate ways to use those gifts.

Teaching Math without a Mathematician

If you have been a longtime reader of my column you know that I have had an enduring struggle with the best way to teach math. I have long recognized that one size doesn’t fit all in education, especially home education. The ability to tailor the curriculum to fit the student is one of the huge advantages of homeschooling.

However it does seem to me that some products work better for more of us than others do. Teaching math is problematic for homeschoolers.

High School Students: Testing, Testing, One, Two, Three

When students reach high school, it seems they are bombarded with a battery of tests. There are enough tests offered to make it very confusing and, to make matters worse, they are titled by letters, not names, and many of the names have changed over the years. So it is hard to identify the test and what it is for.

College Professor Critiques Homeschoolers

I teach sophomore through senior level college students — most of them are "pre-professional" students. They are preparing to go to medical school, dental school, physical therapy school, etc. As a generalization, I've noticed certain characteristics common in my students who were homeschooled. Some of these are desirable, some not.

Teaching Your High Schooler to Write
Classic writer's block is that crippling paralysis that strikes when we're expected to come up with eloquent, edifying words—typically, under a time limit. But a different kind of writer's block can strike homeschoolers seeking to meet the demands of high school level writing. Clearly, writing skills are vital for college preparation as well as for life, but for some, just trying to get started can bring on that vexatious paralysis. However, with a little forethought and the courage to just “plunge in,” you can successfully teach writing to your teen.

Ace the SAT Monster
Yes, that’s the dreaded standardized test that most students bomb—even really smart ones. Colleges not only use it for entrance exams but also scholarships—the higher the score, the bigger the scholarship money. It is even looked at more than a student’s GPA since every school has a different standard for calculating grades. For the homeschooler, it demonstrates their academic prowess and validates their transcript since it is often homemade.

Most Likely to Make a Million
Homeschooling through high school is looming large before me. How did it get here so fast? Just the other day Mitchell was wearing diapers, drawing rockets with crayons, and sleeping with a stuffed Winnie the Pooh. Today he is taller than me, a capable 14-year-old and heading into his freshman year of high school.

High School Students with Hearts Toward Christ
A homeschooling mother recently shared a story about her 17-year-old son who had a job stocking grocery shelves. Within a few months of starting his job, he was awarded two promotions. Sadly, this was not the case for most of his co-workers. What made this boy so remarkable to his supervisors? Take a moment to consider the likely answer to this question.

Discipleship 101
The first step to starting high school is to consider high school graduation. That’s right, you have to plan the graduation before you even start ninth grade. If your student is enrolled in a private school satellite program (PSP) administered by a private school, then you have probably already seen the list of courses that your student must complete in order to earn a diploma.

Teach Your Teens to Think Biblically
Using Research, Reason, Relate, and Record

All Christian parents hope their children will grow up to be strong in the Lord, not only trusting Christ for their salvation, but also becoming mature Christian leaders. This requires that they learn how to think biblically, reasoning accurately from Scripture, and that they learn how to inspire others to follow the instruction in the Word. A great exercise in developing this ability to reason from the Word is learning how to "4-R."

Sharpen Those #2 Pencils: Preparing for the SAT Exam
Whether homeschooled or traditionally schooled, high school students have one thing in common: their dread of college entrance exams. Homeschooling parents, too, may be intimidated.
