I’m really competitive and ambitious so I’m planning to move to New York soon to continue dance and get into a top college.

  • Do Colleges accept homeschooled kids?

    Best answer: A friend of mine who had a strong christian upbringing was home schooled. She graduated with like a 3.9999999 gpa (probably I'm not sure) with a bachelor's of science in mathematics.. Besides myself and 1 other person I know, she was the only person who could consistently score 100% on math test, while the class average was something like a 68 - 72, which professors would call average grades. She is currently a maths phd candidate.

    Although it is not immediately apparent, home schooling may be better than high school. If you are bright it will be a better choice.

    So to answer your question yes, colleges will absolutely accept you, albeit you'll need to do well on your act/ sat 's. Better yet don't believe a word you just read. Pick a local college you'd like to attend and give the admissions office a call!

    Best of Luck !!!!

  • Will it be bad to become HOMESCHOOLED (freshman)?

    For me, school is too distracting. I use to get all A's and be in the 3.7-4.0 range, now I am at Cs, Bs and SOMETIMES an A. This is because I am too distracted on buying nice shoes, nice cloths, getting good haircuts and mainly just socializing. It's been like this for two years ever since 8th grade. Even... show more
    For me, school is too distracting. I use to get all A's and be in the 3.7-4.0 range, now I am at Cs, Bs and SOMETIMES an A. This is because I am too distracted on buying nice shoes, nice cloths, getting good haircuts and mainly just socializing. It's been like this for two years ever since 8th grade. Even if I didn't buy nice cloths or shoes or whatever, I am just distracted easily in school and hanging out with people. I'm thinking of doing online school so I can concentrate easy, but I know once I do this their is no going back (my school districts don't "count" homeschooling). The reason I am holding back from just doing online school now is because I am afraid i'll look back later in life and regret not having highschool memory's like everyone else. I am also afraid it will make me very socially awkward (I already am not the best at socializing with new people and am terrible with big groups). On the other hand, I could from now on if homeschooled get all As again and get into a very good college and look back as a rich guy and not regret a thing. Idk... What do you think I should do. School is stressing me tf out and I'm just too distracted.

  • Can I homeschool myself?

    Best answer: No you can only be home schooled by an adult and they have to contact various places before they can, you can't just teach yourself as you're a minor.

    I get the issue about the homeschooling proms. Different areas are different as far as the demographics of those who choose to homeschool. Locally for me homeschooling is dominated by evangelicals and virtually schooled students, however the two groups don’t mix much. The only prom in our local area started at seven and ended at 10 PM. It was for any indepently homeschooled student over 13. Students had to be signed in and out by their parents. So much for dinner out before. Few kids seemed to want to go. There was a more traditional one about an hours drive away.

    Do a little research and see if the Christian ones are the only option.

  • How come I’m not good in school?

    No matter how hard I try in school, I always fail almost all my classes like it has to be a required thing.

    No matter how hard I try in school, I always fail almost all my classes like it has to be a required thing. I sometimes get good grades on my homework and class assignments, but when I have a test that doesn’t allow me to use anything to help me, I fail. Even when I use notes too. Surprisingly, I haven’t failed a grade ... yet. I switched out of public school and went to homeschooling because I thought it would be better for me. Turns out in the beginning it was. At the end of October, my homeschooling teacher called and told me that my calendar was wrong for my due assignments so now I’m 200+ assignments behind, and everything is due at the end of December 2017. (Bad luck??) My older sister always brings up me failing school most of the time when we’re joking around with eachother because she’s way smarter than me, but I just laugh with her even though I’m extremely embarrassed and hurt inside. Both of parents think I’m failing is because they think I’m lazy, which is not true, but I am lazy. My dad assumed that I blamed my failure on everyone!! I work so hard to the point where my head is pounding so hard. I STUDIED FOR A TEST AND STILL FAILED!!!! I couldn’t remember a thing! Can somebody please help me? Am I dumb or something? Do I have a disability? Are there any tips to help me do better? I don’t know what’s wrong with me at this point. I can’t even talk to my parents about this because they might even think I’m crazy. Please don’t take this as a joke, I need help.

  • Ways to socialize for homeschoolers?

    Best answer: There are several really good resources for homeschoolers. I imagine once you've signed up you will start getting, even more, information in your mailboxes. But in the meantime, there are several places you can go to and ask about. Go to the library and ask the librarian. There is probably a book club that... show more
    Best answer: There are several really good resources for homeschoolers. I imagine once you've signed up you will start getting, even more, information in your mailboxes.
    But in the meantime, there are several places you can go to and ask about.
    Go to the library and ask the librarian. There is probably a book club that meets in the afternoon once the regular kids get out of school. There probably is a HW club. and there will probably be some tutoring - if you need tutoring you can get it from someone a little older. or you can give tutoring to someone a little younger. There might even be a program where you can read to a little kid (or a bunch of little kids) once or twice a week.

    Your town probably has a community center. the community center will have classes you can join and the enrollment is usually very reasonable. Some of the community center activities will be sporty like archery and dance. Some will be more academic like mental math and essay writing. A lot of regular kids go to these because they need someplace to be till their parents go home. Also, they tend to be popular with the homeschool crowd.

    Your school district will also have a bunch of different stuff that they will explain to you when you get your paperwork done. Many school districts allow homeschoolers to participate in after-school sports and clubs.

    If you are in HS you might want to consider taking a college class. Maybe just for fun. but maybe for college credit. It varies by state but in some states everyone is eligible to take classes. The lower level math and English classes are not much harder than what you would find in High school, sometimes it's exactly the same content just more intensive. (2 semesters worth of work in just one semester).

    Also, keep your eyes open for posters and ads. In my community, the schools have been dropping so much stuff its created a demand for after-school classes and programs. Dance, music, math, college prep, are now being taught out of storefronts.

    The last thing on my list is volunteer work. You can volunteer at the hospital, the animal shelter, the local elementary school or nursery school.... there is almost no end to these kinds of opportunities.

    Anyway, most of these opportunities will be with smaller groups of mixed age groups. which I think might be even better than the regular school environment. The first day will still be scary, though

    OK, one last point. The ideal place to learn social skills is not a school. Just think about it. You have hundreds of kids interacting and none of them are very experienced. You are just as likely to pick up bad habits. Most of your life you will be interacting with adults. and adults (for the most part) already have good social skills. So there is a good argument for spending more time with adults.
