Upper Years and Beyond

November 18, 2017

9 am – Noon , Warehouse 242, 2307 Wilkinson Boulevard, Charlotte, NC 28208

Navigating the upper years in a Charlotte Mason education can seem daunting. Can we continue to spread the feast while preparing for the next part of our child’s journey after graduation? What should we know about record keeping, testing and transcripts? What should our expectactions be concerning the transition into higher education?

In this session, Jack Kelly will go over common concerns faced by home school families approaching college, as well as current trends in higher education. He will discuss admissions and the application process, financial aid, standardized testing, and creating a transcript that highlights the strengths of home school students. He will also examine different routes to higher education that students may want to consider and weigh the merits of each.

We will also look deeply at the college experience and how families and students can prepare for the many changes that come with it! Come prepared to learn a lot and enjoy a Q&A time with Jack.

Please RSVP by claiming your ticket here. $5.00 per person (cash) is due at the door. Teenagers are welcome to attend. Families -consisting of adults and teenagers – of 3+ people can pay a flat fee of $15.00.
