In one semester, your homeschooler aged 14-18 can earn 12 college credits and 2 high school credits. And through the process, they will strengthen their testing skills and grow into a young adult who loves learning.
But how does that actually work?
Your CollegePrep journey begins with a call from one of our Collegiate Consultants. Together, you will design your student’s dual credit plan - determining the subjects where they are strongest and how CollegePrep will integrate into your high school schedule. As your student nears the end of the semester, your Collegiate Consultant will connect with you again to discuss options and plan for the future.
In addition to the Collegiate Consultations, you have access to the High School Navigator - an interactive planning and tutorial guide developed specifically for homeschoolers who are earning dual credit through CollegePrep. High School Navigator is complete with tutorial videos and a high school transcript template.
CollegePrep offers something missing from other dual credit programs: accountability. After the initial Collegiate Consultation, your student works one-on-one with a CollegePrep Accountability Mentor. Your student’s Accountability Mentor has two key responsibilities:
As a free bonus, your student also receives access to our proprietary critical thinking course. This self-paced online course not only helps them identify their reasoning strengths and weaknesses, but the whole course has the same feel and question types as the college-level exams they will be taking. This leaves them feeling more confident and familiar with the format; something that will help them when they take the actual exam.
For specific exam preparation, students have access to the CollegePlus LearningNetwork – an online learning and study resource designed to help your student understand how to take their existing knowledge-base and apply that information to successfully challenge their exams.
Around week 8 of CollegePrep, your student will be ready to take the first college-level exam determined by your Collegiate Consultant and your student’s dual credit plan. Leading up to this, your student will have worked with their Accountability Mentor and used the LearningNetwork to deepen their knowledge-base and build both competence and confidence to pass their exam. Your student will likely take an exam that is worth 6 college credits. Those 6 college credits are typically worth one high school credit (depending on your state).
At the end of CollegePrep your student will take their last exam. For most students, this will mean they have earned 12 accredited college credits and 2 high school honors credits.
You should also have observed a noticeable improvement in your student’s motivation level. By working with their Accountability Mentor, your student will be inspired to love learning while being motivated to own their education as a responsible self-directed learner.
After submitting an application, you will receive a CollegePrep Program Guide with more information on CollegePrep and how it can assist your student in earning dual credit and maturing as a self-directed learner.
