Prospective homeschoolers are parents looking for an alternative to the mainstream educati onal system for their off spring. But homeschooling children at high school level strikes fear into even the most dedicated of homeschoolers. They need informati on and answers to their questi ons.

In a clearly presented format, the book includes advice on legal matters, identi fying appropriate courses, sourcing study material, tips on entrepreneurship, financing tertiary studies and the testimonies of successful homeshooled graduates. 
Homeschooling High School is a comprehensive guide to plotting a path through high school and beyond.
