This video explains a bit about what NARHS does.
Why bother with Accreditation? This great video from the Middle States Association (who, incidentally, accredits us) explains!
The Mission of NARHS is to strengthen home-based education by providing consultation and tools to support course planning, student work assessment, quality academic learning, and goal setting leading to a high school transcript and diploma which have far-reaching transferability and acceptance.
Since it is portfolio season again, here is a SIMPLIFIED page of how-to's. Just use this as an abbreviated summary for everything that needs to go into the box you ship us. All work that is completed between September 1 and August 31 of the same school year needs to be sent to the assigned advisor before the following October 31 (to avoid a $25 late fee.)
As you prepare to send yours, here is a checklist that will help to ensure all the necessary pieces are in place, along with links to the relevant forms.
Featuring Cultural Role Models from
Around the World
Character role models can be found imbedded in folklore, legends, biographies and stories from many nations around the globe. Some have stood the test of time, others were so remarkable they deserve to be told and retold. Bringing these stories to life through drama ensures that the stories become memory-builders.
Character building lessons that make history come alive!
What better way to reinforce positive character development while strengthening a child’s understanding of historical events all at the same time than through music and drama! We’ve combined numerous skill-building activities into productions that should take about 20 hours to practice and 20-30 minutes to perform.
GREETINGS: We are approaching a blending time for the NARHS students as they see the light at the end of the road for their work during the 2017-18. At the same time, thoughts turn toward planning for next year. Rainbow Resource Center is already sending out teams to homeschool conventions with curriculum that will whet your appetite for new delicious studies.
Even we are planning ahead with some offers for you that could be a tremendous help. One is a packaged U.S. history course described during the 3rd section of this letter.

"We receive a good number of candidates every year with all or part of their education from a homeschool background. We are looking for the strongest candidates in the world and we find some of those among the homeschoolers." ~Marlyn McGrath, Director of Admissions for Harvard College
