Consider these scenarios for a moment: A director of pediatric neurosurgery at a prestigious hospital found himself well behind his peers in school. One of our nation’s most prominent inventors failed 1000 times before succeeding. The most decorated Olympian of all time started as a struggling student with teachers that seemed ready to write him off. All three of these stories seem unlikely at best, impossible at worst. But every tale is true and speaks volumes on the hallmarks of a successful high school career: hard work, learning from failure, and perseverance. Guarantee a Successful High School Career Tip 1 Work hard! Most would readily acknowledge the integral part that hard work plays in a successful high school career. Rarely can any highly successful individual say everything just came to them without having to work for it. From the student to the teacher to the doctor to the professional athlete, all would agree: hard work pays dividends! Consider the life of Ben Carson, formerly the director of Pediatric Neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Medical Center. After a tumultuous childhood, Carson found himself significantly behind his classmates academically. His mother took charge, instituting a rigorous study routine which included two book reports […]
The high school years can be an overwhelming time in a student’s life. There are countless options in life set before them, but time is of the essence and decisions need to be made to determine which path in life they will choose. For many students facing the high school years, there is a need for flexibility so they can continue to pursue their passions whether it is travel, sports, music, or in an academic subject. Online high school is becoming a popular option among high school age students and their families because it is the perfect blend of academics as well as educational flexibility. If you are considering enrolling your student in an online high school but are unsure if its the right choice to make, here is an overview of just a few of the many benefits that online high schools provide. Schedule Flexibility One problem with traditional high school is that it forces students into a schedule that may not work best for them. While some teenagers may be fine waking up early and being done by mid-afternoon, others may not be able to focus so early in the morning. Online high school allows students to create […]
Homeschooling high school is a totally different experience today than it was “in the good ol’ days.” But it’s also a different stage in the homeschooling journey for everyone. Many homeschoolers with young children enjoy those early years of hands-on learning: playing educational games on the floor, being outside and experiencing life together, using meal prep and snack time to teach simple math concepts and shapes. So much fun! And truth-be-told, I loved those times, too. Which was why, years ago, as our oldest children approached high school, I started to get nervous. There were not that many homeschool curricula options for basic high school subjects, and I began to think that I would have to maintain the hands-on approach, or at least be the primary teacher, for classes that were way over my head. For example, how would I ever teach things like advanced maths and sciences? Additionally, by that time, our family had grown, and I found myself chasing after two toddlers and a baby. I realized that my prep time would be limited, and my energy level and attention span was already stretched. What’s a mother to do? Fortunately, after a considerable amount of searching and prayer, […]

It is beyond doubt that more is caught than taught when it comes to raising Godly kids. This is a fact Christian homeschooling parents take seriously. For many of us, the choice to homeschool has deep roots in the desire to be the primary example in the lives of our children. That’s why we spend so much time around them. The best way to help your kids come to know God and the Bible is to live a “God and the Bible” kind of life – and to do so with your kids. The thing is, living a Godly life includes a lot of intentional teaching. Jesus’ first command to His newly established church included the instruction to teach (Matthew 28:19). He tells fathers to bring up their children in the “nurture and admonition of the Lord” (Ephesians 6:4). Timothy knew the Scriptures from a child because he had been taught (2 Timothy 3:15). The question then, becomes “how.” It is not easy to teach children the Bible in a way that will make a difference. In my 21 years of experience in children’s ministry, there are two obstacles that cause well-meaning Christian teachers of all stripes to stumble. […]
