Ordinary teens doing extraordinary things

“Associate in Science at the age of 17! He graduated with High Honors and is headed to North Carolina State University. Jennifer Cook DeRosa, thank you for sharing your wealth of information with us! We started dual enrollment in 10th grade at a local private college, then in 11th and 12th, he took exclusively dual enrollment classes at local community college. He has also a side business of landscaping and lawn maintenance. -Jane G. ”

“My daughter is an official college graduate! Her Bachelor of Arts in English from Thomas Edison State University was conferred today! She got her first 3 credits 5 yrs ago the day before she turned 14 from a CLEP test. That motivated her to keep going! She’s our 2nd child to graduate from Thomas Edison State University at 18. Take the leap with your first CLEP/DSST or dual credit class. You can do it too!! -Misti K.”

“My son, firstborn of seven, just graduated from law school at age 21. Law school was the first time he ever set foot in a classroom! Using the methods that we learn about here in Homeschooling for College Credit, my son completed his bachelor’s degree from Thomas Edison State University at age 18. He was a history major at Thomas Edison, and in addition to his classes there, he obtained credit through very cheap community college classes, CLEP tests, DSST tests, and FEMA classes. After Thomas Edison and scoring well on the LSAT, my son was offered full scholarships from three law schools. -Susan P.”

“My daughter graduated with her Bachelors in English two weeks before her 18th birthday and we walked side by side in commencement in September. My daughter was accepted to her dream school in New York and is working on a second degree that she will finish next spring. I completed a BA in Liberal Studies. We have no college debt thanks to being resourcefully planned using Jennifer’s book. My degree cost was $7,099 for 122 credits and my daughter’s degree was $8,100 for 120 credits. -Karen & Katie P.”

“This is my oldest Addison, a graduate from the Harvard University Extension School. This simply would never have happened without the early positive feedback from Jennifer. It was really a dream come true. She graduated with honors ALB in English with dual minors in Government and Management. It would not have been possible without her taking CLEP, excelling at the Community College level (which earned her a Phi Theta Kappa scholarship which covered most of her Harvard education), and always following through with her studies. I guess that I might have spent $5,000 on her entire college education over time thanks to Jennifer Cook-DeRosa. -Michael H.”

“My personal success with Homeschooling for College Credit: My daughter graduated last night from our local community college thanks to CLEPs and dual enrollment. And today is her official high school graduation date. Homeschooling for College Credit for the win! She’s going to Truman State in the fall. She still qualifies as a freshman since she graduated before I issued her high school diploma. -Victoria V. ”
