I'm nervous! Why? I always get this way at the beginning of the school year. We start on Tuesday! Every beginning of the school year a fear takes over me... a dread that I will fail as a teacher, a mother, and spiritual mentor. I have no one to blame, no one to complain to, no one to say it’s not my fault...the buck stops with me. I am the educator.

Routines and schedules are necessary for accomplishing our goals, but students (and parents) get tired of doing things the same way every day.

As adults, routines help us not have to make a hundred million decisions every day. We tend to stick to our routines even if we don’t purposely do so. Ever find yourself sitting in the same chair or pew week after week at church? You might even park in the same spot every Sunday. I have one area at Walmart I always park my car. If I didn’t park in that area, I’d likely forget where I parked.

My name is Michael Knott, and I am the Director of HomeWorks by Precept. As many homeschool families begin to start their new school year, I wanted to take some time to encourage each of you with something has been on my heart recently as it pertains to the Christian homeschool community.

The book of Genesis has always fascinated me. It was written by Moses to the Israelites who had been in Egyptian captivity for hundreds of years. The Israelites did not have the luxury that you and I have of opening our Bibles to study God's Word. At their point in time, they only knew stories and practiced certain traditions that their parents had passed down to them. They were basic people who never had the close interaction with God that Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and their direct descendants had.

Choosing to homeschool through high school is a big decision with a lot of responsibility. Dual enrollment allows your student to take a college course both for high school and college credit. I want to give you a few things to consider when deciding if your homeschool teen will benefit from dual enrollment.

Here are a few tips for helping your child participate in a dual enrollment course.

1. Take the ACT or SAT – Almost all colleges will have minimum ACT/SAT scores before they will register your student in a dual credit class. Sometimes, this is only for the subject corresponding with the course the student wants to take. PLAN to take the ACT near the end of the student’s SOPHOMORE year if you plan to dual enroll the student as a junior.
