Homeschooling Programs Allows Students to Earn College Degrees for Free
Programs are available for homeschoolers and other young students to help them finish college without debt.
For anyone who chooses to be creative about getting a college education and who is willing to be assertive during their younger ages, there are lots of ways to complete at least some college, if not finishing a 4-year degree, without paying a dime for it.
The Cost of Public Education
My wife and I began homeschooling eight years ago, when my oldest child was in 3rd grade. Over the past eight years, we've learned a lot about how schooling works, including how much money state and local governments save by not having your child in their classroom.
My wife learned of a program in Utah, where we have homeschooled our children, that provides resources (including cash) and opportunities for homeschooled students. It's called MyTechHigh. The program requires parents to enroll their children, then submit learning logs for them each week over the course of the year.
For those who participate in MyTechHigh, there is a budget provided from state funds for purchasing educational materials, including technology. We have provided iPads, electric circuit games, and other educational products to our kids, and we've been reimbursed for those items each year through MyTechHigh.
Going to College At Home: My Daughter's Experience
I have a daughter who we've had enrolled in MyTechHigh for several years. She found out last year about a program designed to give homeschooled kids the opportunity to earn a college degree through the University of Southern New Hampshire.
Although my daughter was technically too young to join the program (she was 13), she was able to get an exemption, and she finished the 2-year program within a year's time. Now, at 14 years old, she has an Associate of Science degree with an emphasis in Business Management.
For anyone who is concerned about the increasing problem society is having with creating debt-enslaved college graduates, you may consider looking into a program like MyTechHigh. These types of programs exist in most states, and are available to kids who are homeschooled as well as to kids who are attending school in some other fashion.
