Here's a site to help you fill out the FAFSA. My neighbor works in admissions in a college and she says there's a place somewhere online where you fill in the info ahead of time and they *estimate* how much you will be required to pay toward college -- then you can work on grants and scholarships. She hasn't given me the exact site, but here's a starting point:

Check out their website at www.pcci.edu or call 1.800.PCC.INFO

They are still somewhat affordable, although you might need to check their accrediting situation. I haven't looked at it lately, but they didn't used to be regionally accredited.

Does anyone know anyone who has done this?

It looks like you can take them via the distance learning application, while the student is still in high school, for example. Or full-time, via the degree application.

Here's an interesting looking website to help with calculating financial costs of college. I think you can use Peterson's searchable databases and interactive tools to find colleges, universities, graduate programs, look for scholarships and grants and take practice exams for SAT and ACT.

Whitefield College, named after revivalist George Whitefiled:

Main Office Location: 1347 Ariana St., Lakeland, FL 33803
External Studies Program Info Center: 608.985.8324

From the catalog:

"Have a high school transcript and any prior post-secondary transcripts forwarded to the Admissions Office. If home schooled students do not have a transcript, a parental letter describing educational background and skills will suffice."

I found a brochure about FAFSA. I went to www.pin.ed.gov. It's not clear to me if we fill out our students' info or the parent's info. Anyone know?

The FAFSA is about how much aid your family might get for college. More info at www.fafsa.ed.gov

If no one knows, I'll call 1 800 4 FED AID Monday.

If you go to this site and enter your zip code, it will tell you, say, for twenty miles around you all the volunteer positions available -- ours ranged from "mural painters wanted" to "Civil Air Patrol observers needed" to "teach someone English". It looks interesting:

When one of our boys wanted to be a chef, we used to attend chef shows yearly. Several of the chefs he interviewed said that this program at The Balsams (a grand hotel in NH) is the premiere culinary apprenticeship program in the country...and is said to be better than going to cooking school, for what it's worth.

Also, regarding writing, have any of you used the IEW course? Did you teach it in your home with the "teaching writing structure and style?? Was it very difficult to teach??

I met a nice lady a few days ago, whose son is also in highschool. He is taking a class all year long on SAT prep.

I hadn't thought of this. Have any of you, who have highschoolers, done this before they need to take SAT? If so, did it help?

Just wondering if it's something I need to start thinking about in connection with college.
