In Pursuit Of Your Passion! - Panel Discussion

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

There are many ways to homeschool high school, don't be typical! Think outside the box and seek opportunities to pursue your passion. Whether you're a super scholar, sports enthusiast or theatre geek, opportunities are plentiful to help you pursue your passion while homeschooling your high school years.

Did you know some trainers or coaches are willing to exchange their lesson fee for hands on work by the student? Are entrepreneurial skills more your speed? Communities abound with mentors willing to support youth...sometimes you just need to ask. Theatre and music avenues also offer excellent opportunities to develop your passion outside the typical high school program.

Please join Lauren Tomasula, Nick Schear, Shantelle Ruppel, and Kaleigh Kailani to hear their stories about how they have spent their time homeschooling through high school. Learn about the resources they've utilized and avenues they've explored in pursuit of their passion!
