WHO WE ARE
We are Certified School Guidance Counselors with over 20 years experience in the public school system. So many times we have seen families exit the public school system to homeschool their children, only to be left to “figure it out on their own”. With those families, we ended our conversation with “Please do not hesitate to call if you need us and we will do our best to assist you.” Often times, the families would feel lost and found themselves reaching out to us for direction.
After searching for resources to help homeschool families we discovered there was a scarcity of school counseling services available. Because of this, Homeschool Guidance Connection LLC was born. Our goal is to provide both the parents and students with information and services on curriculum options, laws regarding homeschooling, social emotional learning, online tutoring services, local field trips, academic review and course recommendations, college essay & application help, and the list goes on and on. A one-stop-shop in the making.
We are here to help you through your elementary, middle and high school journey with online prep rallies to get your day started; a vault of mini-motivational lessons on various topics; academic coaching to get through the tough times and provide online ongoing support; and resources to guide your next steps.
HOW WE CAN HELP YOU
As your Virtual Guidance Counselor, we provide personalized help with mapping out your graduation plan, creating a college list and identifying homeschool friendly universities, writing a personal statement and editing essays, accessing financial aid and searching for scholarships, preparing for the transition from 8th grade into high school and from high school into college, and much more.
School Counselors play a vital role in student success that contribute to college readiness, academic outcomes and developing social emotional skills.
