About The Book

This book & work text set will help you and your high school student breeze through the steps of college and scholarship applications, as well as brushing up on study habits and life skills.  

The book includes thirty-three modules addressing College Prep, Study Skills, and Life Skills.


    “I appreciate the clear, concise steps outlined for each year as well as all the great links to necessary sites/documents.

    For the self-directed homeschooling parent, this resource is a fantastic value and clear guidebook to the high school years and beyond. The test prep, study skills and life skill builders are such a nice bonus, and a reminder that this season of having dependent teens at home will soon pass!

    The worktext does a fantastic job of linking the guide to the actual work that needs to be completed by the student. It gives them an opportunity to build confidence in their growing skills re: planning, time management and seeing the big picture of their educational goals.”  ~Mia  (homeschooling mom of 4)

    “The extra workbook really brings the lessons to life, including activities and reproducible worksheets, organizers, and planning pages!  I LOVE the full-color version best!”  ~Rachel

    You’ve Got This!

    As the homeschooling community continues to grow, one of the biggest concerns we hear from parents is that they don’t know what to do for high school. It’s not the academics that are nerve-wracking so much as it is all of those ‘special things,’ like testing, applications, and deadlines that must be met for a smooth transition into college.

    While the transition itself, for the homeschooled student, is not so different from the traditionally-schooled student, the homeschool parent must take on the roles of teacher, counselor, and school administrator during this time.  In ‘Through the Door,’ you’ll learn the tips & tricks most counselors use to give their students a jump start on their bright futures!


    Reproducible Pages

    The book’s accompanying work text features reproducible planning and organization pages, essay practice and guidance, life skills exercises, career planning surveys, request forms, and more to help guide you through this hectic time and keep track of everything in one place!

    This guide is a wonderful resource for homeschooling parents who need that extra push to include their teens in making plans for high school and a successful launch. In a very down-to-earth style, this guide and worktext take the overwhelm out of the process and make it a joint effort between parent and student.

    ~Robert (father to 4 college graduates)

    I desperately needed this information. Please share this with other homeschooling families!!

    ~Erin (homeschool mom to 1 teen)

    After reading through "Through the Door" I feel both encouraged and challenged. I am reminded of things I have done well to prepare my children for this process, but I also see areas I need to improve. My husband works at a college, and we both attended college ourselves, but times have changed since we first applied and prepared for college. Additionally, I feel that the step-by-step nature of the book, especially instructions on what should be done by grade level, is helpful.
