A 2023 High School Graduate’s Thoughts on her Homeschool Life

Every homeschool kiddo is as unique as their fingerprints. Not one our homeschool kids are the same: they don’t learn the same, they don’t want to connect socially the same, or have the same life path.

On today’s episode, we get to chat with Rachel Wiedrick, a 2023 high school graduate’s thoughts on homeschool life.
