  2. I can’t find my last post about this, so I hope it’s OK to post this information again. Our dc, 18 and 15 are both taking classes at Trinity International University in Deerfield, IL this semester. I received this email from the coordinator of their homeschool pilot program. Dear Homeschooling Families, We would love to host even more homeschooled students for this event! Please feel free to share the message below with the appropriate students, parents, group and loops. Any student from any state is welcome. As always, please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. *International students are welcome to apply, too. They can do their interviews via Skype. Blessings, Jennifer Greetings from Trinity International University. I know that many of your students are thinking through the college search process, which is one of the most important decisions they will make. At Trinity, we are committed to serious-minded, thoughtful Christian higher education that seeks to form the hearts and minds of students, who will be used to transform the world for Christ. As many are considering college options, we invite you to encourage them to look at Trinity during our upcoming Presidential Scholars Weekend.

  3. I received this email from the Director of Admissions at TIU. DC 18 and 15 have been taking courses at TIU this semester and it's been a wonderful experience. TIU is incredibly welcoming to homeschooled students. The Director of Admissions and his wife were both homeschooled. Out of 7 students in our DC’s Music Theory class, 5 were homeschooled.

  4. Here's an email I received from Trinity International University in Deerfield, IL. Trinity is reaching out to the homeschooling community in a variety of ways; their Director of Admissions (and his wife) were both homeschooled. This email was sent by the executive assistant to one of the VP's - she's a former homeschooling mom. Hello Homeschooling Families! Do you need to "round out" your curriculum for your high schooler this fall? Do you need to challenge your student a bit more as a junior or senior? Are you still looking for a good Bible or Spanish curriculum? Look no further! Trinity has additional fall '17 options for dual enrollment and dual credit! See below for details. We are offering as online dual enrollment: BI 101 Understanding the Old Testament - 3 credit hours - A survey of the setting, history and literature of the Old Testament. Emphasis is given to major Old Testament themes, including covenant, salvation, worship, wisdom, justice and righteousness, and messianic hope. BI 111 Understanding the New Testament - 3 credit hours - A survey of the setting, history, and literature of the New Testament. Emphasis is given to major New Testament themes, including the person and work of Jesus Christ, the ministry of the Holy Spirit, the theology of Paul, and the Christian in society. These courses begin October 2nd, 2017. We have only five spots in each class, so it is first come, first serve, one class per student. We are offering as on-campus dual credit: SP 121 Introductory Spanish - 4 credit hours - Pronunciation, conversation, reading, and grammar. Laboratory activities. Collateral reading with reports during the second semester. As far as possible, the course is conducted in Spanish. This course will be twelve weeks long beginning September 26th, 2017, and meets from 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. We need 8-10 students to run this course. Please register for both types of courses online at tiu.edu/dualcredit. Please select either "online dual enrollment" or "homeschoool dual credit" The registration deadline is September 18th. Please feel free to contact me at jflanagan@tiu.edu or 847-317-7055 with any questions. We look forward to partnering with you! Blessings, Jennifer
  5. Calling all homeschooling parents! We are eager to hear from you! Trinity International University, in conjunction with the local homeschool community, is launching a homeschool dual credit program this fall! This program will allow students to pursue higher education coursework while still in high school, taught by supportive college instructors who teach from a Christian worldview. This program will include many resources for homeschooling students and families, in addition to the courses themselves. Students in this program will have access to Trinity facilities such as the Rolfing Library, the fitness center, and the University Student Success Center, and to events such as Chapel, concerts, athletic competitions, college-prep workshops and more. To kick-off this collaboration, we’d like to invite you to a vision night, Thursday, July 20, 2017, from 6:30 p.m.-7:30 p.m. at the Norton Welcome Center on the TIU Campus. Please join with Trinity College Admissions Staff and the Trinity College Dean in this program-shaping opportunity. This is a very exciting time to connect with Trinity College, and we'd be delighted to hear from you. Please pass this on to others who may be interested. For questions regarding this event, please contact Jennifer Flanagan at jflanagan@tiu.edu or 847-317-7055. To allow for an appropriate hosting capacity, intention of attendance notifications (also directed to Jennifer) are appreciated.
  6. Thank you! I'm addressing a group of teens at a youth group event this evening. I got this! ðŸ‘
  7. Which is correct, "I got this," or I've got this?" I assume the latter, although "I got this" seems to be increasingly popular in informal English.
  8. Ds 17 just participated in the 360 Leadership Institute at Trinity International University in Deerfield, IL, where he earned 3 college credits for $500. How I wish I had thought to post it here earlier! During the Institute, the students live on campus where they attend classes, listen to speakers, attend chapel, participate in team building activities and take field trips to places like the Art Insttiute in Chicago. They also participate in daily mentor groups where they explore career interests from a Christian perspective. Room and board, all activities fees, and three college credits are included in the fee - usually more than $1000 per credit hour. But get this, his certificate of completion entitles him to $500 per year in scholarship money if he decides to attend college at Trinity! He's also eligible for another $500 because I attended the Parent's Day Preview while he was there. And they waived the application fee. The best part of the experience was that he had a blast living on campus, and it was a great opportunity for him to explore whether Trinity is a fit for him. He plans to attend the Leadership Institute again next year (and will receive another $2000 in scholarship money if he does so). Put it on your calendar for June of next year if you have a student who migh be interested in attending and feel free to messaged me with questions. https://undergrad.tiu.edu/student-life/student-involvement/emerging-leaders/360-institute/
  9. I'd forgotten about The Teenage Liberation Handbook - thank you! And Cal Newport's book is the one I was trying to remember :001_smile:
  10. I'm trying to remember the name of a book - it's about kids getting out of the rat race of AP classes and homework overload and pursuing their passions in HS - it contains several amazing stories about kids who pursued their passions and got into college - what college admissions personnel are looking for in incoming students, etc. Thank you! :001_smile:
  11. Donate them to the local library?
