  3. Thought I would share my experience with the NCAA Eligibility Center to quell any fears people might have. It was a straight forward process. My DD did a combination of classes. Some were completed at home, some with an online provider, and some dual enrollment at the local university. Summer before junior year: DD created an account and paid the $80 fee. I completed and submitted the Home School Administrator and Accordance Statement. I downloaded the core course worksheets and completed one for each class she took at home or with an online provider.
  4. I've read through several of the NCAA threads, but have a question I did not see addressed. My daughter is taking Spanish I, but the instructor has created the text. How does that work with the clearinghouse worksheets? Has anyone used Derek Owens classes and successfully had his classes approved? I would imagine that would be similar to our Spanish classes. Thanks for any help.
  5. And the new system is a total freaking nightmare! The biggest issue is that you CANNOT call and talk to anyone about the process. When they had a Homeschool Department, you could ask questions, and even submit a few sample worksheets to see if those were OK before submitting the rest. Now they will not even talk to you or open your file until they get the coach's request, and even then they will not begin evaluating the courses until all documents are submitted. You will not know what's going on, or if there are any issues, until they make their final decision and the courses appear (or d
  6. I was finally able to get through to an actual human at the homeschool department today, to get a couple of questions answered. I thought I'd post the replies in case anyone else had the same questions. RE: Course Titles One issue that I know we've discussed here before has been the list of "approved" course titles that NCAA has on their website. I called to ask if those were truly the only acceptable course titles, since none of DS's courses fit their titles and I did not want to have to "disguise" his courses (e.g. listing Ancient Greek Literature as English 11) or use different course
  7. I spoke with Kristin today in the homeschool department regarding whether online dual enrollment classes were scrutinized the same way as online high school classes (with restrictions as to "approved providers"), and she said that as long as a transcript is sent directly from the college, there would be no problem with getting approval regardless of whether they are online or in person. I also spoke with someone in the legal department (didn't get his name, sorry) to ask about restrictions on college classes during a gap year. He said that auditing classes would be no problem at all, and e
  8. Does anyone know who offers online classes that are NCAA eligible for core classes? My google searches aren't helping me much!
  9. My sons have always dreamed of playing sports in college, so I want to leave that door open for them with NCAA eligibility. I'm currently trying to plan for my older son who will be in 9th grade next year. I want to get busy preparing & planning for next year but I don't know where to find a list of approved or unapproved curriculum. I've searched & read a few threads here and some of the NCAA Eligibility site. When I look at the Homeschool section under Resources on the NCAA eligibility website, then click on what I think will give me a list of approved courses, it wants me to en

  11. My son is keen to do collegiate gymnastics. I have been trying to contact the NCAA but have not got past voice mail for either the international or homeschool teams. I have received emails from the international team but they are very vague and mention "too many uncertainties at this time". The very last email I received referred to the upcoming changes in 2016 and the possibility of more in 2018 and how that made it almost impossible to provide answers with any certainty. :confused: I have read all the threads which refer to the NCAA but am wondering how much of the advice there will rem
  12. Is there a list of online/virtual schools that are NCAA approved?
  13. So I got successfully through two of my four WITHOUT having to deal with college sports...then my younger ds starts talking shooting, then he STARTS shooting....then he drags his younger dd into it!!!! And yep, you guessed it...they are both talking college sports/NCAA rifle teams. Trying to wrap my head around the paperwork required is making my organic chem classes look easy. So, here is my first question: do anyone know if we just start sending in classes as we get the paperwork done or do we hold on and send them in as a group? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  14. In the past there were some hearty discussions about navigating NCAA eligibility that included some discussion of abuse by colleges. A few posters shared their experiences with trying to get transcripts approved by NCAA. That discussion included a sideline discussion about NCAA and players in high profile revenue sports who were only students in the barest sense of the word. A couple articles this week brought the topic to mind again. CNN has a report out after going through records form 21 colleges/universities. CNN: Some College Athletes Play like Adults, Read like 5th Graders
  15. This thread was hijacked last week. I decided to start a new thread to report on my discussion with a lady (forgot to get her name) in the homeschool dept at NCAA today. First and foremost, it is my humble opinion that the NCAA is not trying to stop homeschoolers with conscientious parents from playing college sports. There are unscrupulous coaches and negligent parents who are harming their student athletes under the guise of homeschooling by not providing a college preparatory education. That is what the NCAA is looking for. In order to find those buggers, they have to look a little m
  16. I checked ds's NCAA account today and found that his Academic Status has changed from 'decision not yet available' to 'early academic qualifier'. They have listed all the courses they considered. Ds has taken many classes at CC and a few at PS, but I filled out 6 core course worksheets for those taken at home or through a private teacher. Here they are: English 9 (Literary Lessons from Lord of the Rings at home) English 10 (High School Composition through Laurel Tree Tutorials) Geometry (Discovering Geometry by Michael Serra at home) American History ( through History at our House with
  17. I am too excited to sleep, so I thought I would share a bit of our high school athlete's journey. Honestly, we are just at the beginning, but I hope that our experience will be of use to another athlete's family – I know there are a few here. If there is interest, I will update this thread from time to time. Dh is a natural athlete. I am athletically challenged. :tongue_smilie: Ds inherited dh’s athletic gene and my math gene. Ds's passion in basketball. Ds excels in math, but has no passion for math. Ds has played basketball since the age of 6. He's also played soccer, bas
  18. DS is a rising senior and a competitive rifle shooter. I received an email from the NCAA that all my core course worksheets sent to them this past spring appear blank in their browser. So, this is a word of caution to all --- do not use their fillable pdf forms. I used a product called Bluebeam PDF Revu, SW I use all the time to write on my AP Stat students pdfs, and wrote on the NCAA forms. When I look at these forms on my pc the information is there, but not for them. All of DS CCW are in snail mail to the NCAA. NCAA did say that we could make our own form provided the form retains th
  19. This is a follow-up to the thread http://forums.welltrainedmind.com/topic/482794-heard-from-the-ncaa/ After receiving the email from the NCAA stating that the Core Course Worksheets pdfs were all blank I sent the package snail-mail. Today in checking DS *My Planner* at the NCAA Eligibility Center I found the *Missing Core-Course Worksheets* box had been checked off. :hurray: The disclosure box states I'm guessing that since his *My Planner Missing Core-Course Worksheets* box has been checked off that they have reviewed the CC worksheets, however under Academic Status DS is still
  20. In case you haven't been following the NCAA thread my DS is a rising senior and a competitive rifle shooter. He's happily being recruited by several colleges to be on their rifle teams, all are Division 1 schools. All are miles and miles away from home. Last night he received his second invitation for an 'Official' visit and is making plans to visit this school. We both visited the school this past spring and met with the coach, toured the facilities and questions answered. Of course as time has past I have more questions. :lol: DS would like to go on this official visit alone. The agenda

  22. DS13 is in 7th grade this year. He is taking six online classes, four with VP (Omnibus, Algebra 1, Latin 1, Biology) and two with TPS (English 1, Geography). He is currently in the VP-Diploma program. The year has been intense, but I really wanted to get a feeling for his ability to function in this kind of learning environment during 7th/8th grade, as we intend to outsource a majority of classes for high-school. We will need to keep a couple of parameters in sight when planning high-school, and I am increasingly dubitative about the VP-Diploma for our needs... We live in Europe. Moving
  23. I just downloaded the 2012-2013 NCAA Informational Brochure. I thought I had read last year that we register our kids at the beginning of junior year, but the 2012-2013 guidelines state that students are to register at the beginning of their sophomore years at www.eligibilitycenter.org. The registration fee is going to increase on September 1, 2012, to $70, so if you have a sophomore, you may want to register this month before the rate increase kicks in.
  24. For those of you that have had children go on to play sports in college, can you give me some advice on curriculum? I have an 8th grader that is a competitive swimmer and would like to swim in college. I have read the NCAA rules/ requirements for eligibility, but would like some clarification from Moms who have been there/done that. It looks as if the textbook approach would be the easiest way to get eligibility, but we haven't used traditional textbooks very often in our schooling... other than some BJU science and Saxon Math. Would you mind sharing with me what materials/curriculm you did us
