Writing a letter to your confirmation candidate

It seems that one of the biggest events in confirmation preparation in this country is the letters of support to be given to the confirmation candidates during their mandatory retreats.

I have three such letters saved on this blog:

Whether you regularly include tests in your homeschool or never test your child, you need to learn about the standard high school tests to prepare your child for college. But what you may not know is … not only will they help your child get into college, but they can also be the key to saving money—through scholarships attached to these tests and even by earning college credit using tests! Understanding the common high school tests can save you real money right now—saving thousands of dollars on college costs.

He was also able to pursue a double major because he had taken CLEP  and AP tests in history and science. That cleared up his schedule enough to allow him to pursue a double major and still graduate in 4 years!

Although you may have taken one of these tests in high school yourself, you may not know how to register or prepare your child for these tests in your homeschool. So, how do you get all the information you need? Well here's a simple, informative and FREE way to do that next week!
