Yes! One hundred percent yes - your kids can do school at home and, if they so choose, go on to college!
I removed my kids from the traditional public school setting when my oldest - pictured here - was just starting fifth grade. We did school at home ... graduated from home - received several offers of academic merit scholarship. He wanted to be an architect since the age of 4 or so...a ‘builder man’, he would call himself.
Five years ago he accepted the offer from Tulane University in New Orleans to become a part of their five year Master of Architecture program, graduating last week with the Masters degree, as well as a Bachelor of Architecture, Bachelor of Arts and a minor in Urban Studies.
He is proof positive that school at home does not handicap kids - make it so they can’t thrive, or do life. Quite the opposite! He graduated at the top of the school of architecture- receiving the only ‘A’ given to the thesis students this year.
If you are worried about the future of your kids re: your decision to homeschool - if you feel like they will not have the same opportunities or ability to go forth and be amazing in their own right - just know...it can be done️ *we’re eagerly anticipating what our youngest will do- graduating next year from the University of Wyoming.
