What others are saying:
- I heard Cheryl speak at a friend's homeschool group about three years ago. I took copious notes and followed her suggestions. My daughter was accepted at NYU, her first choice school. Her advice is spot-on. I followed her transcript recommendations to the tee.
- Cheryl gave me advice about transfer credits and high school credits that allowed me to save thousands of dollars in college tuition. She is so practical. I have told all my friends about how their kids can save money on college by taking college classes in high school. Her information on the gap year also helped my daughter who was not sure whether or not she wanted to attend college right away.
- I knew I wanted my kids to go to college but each year as they got older and they approached the high school years, I got nervous. Talking to Cheryl relieved me of my fears and has helped me choose my high curriculum. I also appreciate the fact that she is real and tells me the positive and negative aspects of my choices. Her writing curriculum has also been helpful.
- I followed Cheryl's advice and my son has been admitted to four colleges already. We are still waiting for him to hear from other choices. My son was a struggling student and following Cheryl's recommendations, he was able to up his test scores. All the scholarships offered him at least half tuition. Cheryl also shared with us how my son could get college credits even though he was in the 12th grade when we attended her sessions.
