College Bound Essentials - Homeschool Edition

With all of the many benefits of home schooling, it can be daunting knowing how to navigate the college preparation process, college selection, scholarship competition and the essential school forms and documentation.  Ms. Hartley has worked with hundreds of home school students in the past and has seen them successfully win full scholarships and admissions to such colleges as Harvard, Stanford, Washington and Lee, Presbyterian, Anderson, North Greenville, Erskine, Boston University, American, Liberty, and many more.  

Documentation:  Your student is working hard to build the best grades and resume he or she can.  What you present to colleges regarding the details of their education can work to their advantage or can cost them important scholarships or admission offers.  We will spend about 45 minutes going over the SEVEN documents you need to be prepared to send and how to present them as professionally as possible.

This custom class will specifically address the unique needs of college bound homeschool students and the essential documentation that the parent needs to prepare in order to represent your home school as professionally as possible.  This class will be presented in Columbia on Sept 11th from 6-9 pm, if there are at least 20 families interested in taking part. 

Fees & Materials- The cost of the workshop is just $75/student. Parents are encouraged to come along at no additional charge.  Students attending this session will receive a comprehensive, College Success Workbook to guide them through all aspects of college preparation

When registering, only enroll the student, not the parent.  Extra students can be registered at the same time for the same price by listing them as "Guests".

Where?   This session will take place at Christ Church of the Carolinas,1824 Barnwell St, Columbia, SC,29201. 

Who should come? 
Rising 9th-12th graders and their parents will absolutely benefit from this workshop; although motivated 7th and 8th graders have also benefitted in previous sessions.  This information is most helpful when students and parents can learn it sooner than later so that they have more time to act on it before the senior year.

What will we learn?  This class will give students and parents valuable information on how to make the decisions throughout high school that will result in maximum admission offers and scholarship money.  In recent monthsMs. Hartley's own daughter, a college sophomore at Dartmouth, won over $800,000 in merit scholarship money to top schools (Sewanee, Furman, Wofford, High Point Univ., Univ of Oklahoma and more). And, she has a high school junior and freshman about to go through the process.

 Specifically, the class will:

  • Teach students how to get full ride offers to over 200 schools with just one test
  • How to build a homeschool transcript, profile and resume that will result in the best admission offers
  • How to go to Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Stanford, Brown, MIT and more for FREE (really)
  • Teach them how to find their best college fits
  • Cover basic interview skills
  • Teach students how to tour and evaluate a college as it relates to the student’s interests
  • Identify the best and least expensive ways to increase SAT and ACT scores
  • Encourage them to take “ownership” of this next stage in their lives, to be proactive, organized and serious about this decision and help them strategize a game plan to get their best results!
