college-without-high-schoolMay I have a drum roll, please? And the winner of Parent at the Helm’s September Book Giveaway, a copy of Blake Bole’s College without High School: A Teenager’s Guide to Skipping High School and Going to College, is…

…Ellen! Congratulations!

As always, I will send Ellen an e-mail to make shipping arrangements so she and her family can enjoy their new, free book!

Didn’t win?

Not to worry! Blake’s book is available in the usual haunts and, if you happened to catch a previous Parent at the Helm post, apparently he personally haunts Powell’s Books, so it shouldn’t be hard to find, especially when you know the following about the book.

High school can be boring. High school curriculum can be frustrating and out of touch.

So what is the answer for young people whose creativity, bright ideas, and boundless energy are being stifled in that over-scheduled and grade-driven environment?

What would you do if you could go to college without going to high school? Would you travel abroad, spend late nights writing a novel, volunteer in an emergency room, or build your own company? What dreams would you be pursuing right now?

College Without High School shows how independent teens can self-design their high school education by becoming unschooled. Students begin by defining their goals and dreams and then pursue them through a combination of meaningful and engaging adventures.

It is possible to pursue your dreams, and gain admission to any college of your choice.

Boles shows how to fulfill college admission requirements by proving five preparatory results: intellectual passion, leadership, logical reasoning, background knowledge, and the capacity for structured learning. He then offers several suggestions for life-changing, confidence-building adventures that will demonstrate those results.

This intriguing approach to following your dreams and doing college prep on your own terms will be welcomed by students (and their parents).

Stay tuned – there’s more! Parent at the Helm’s October Book Giveaway includes not one but two giveaways by the same author – the lovable Marty Layne! She has offered to our readers a book about homeschooling and one for the kiddos! You won’t want to miss these, so keep watching for the announcement and your chance to win one or both of these terrific reads.

Many thanks to everyone who entered to win College without High School. May October be your lucky month!
