Featured this week: Brooke Bartlett - Accepted!!!


I am writing this to you and to all the homeschoolers out there wondering whether or not all the paperwork and portfolio reviews are worth the time, money and effort.  We have been homeschooling our seven children from the get go and have moved across the country several times.  When my first student reached high

school age, my husband wanted to find a way to make sure she could have a "Real Diploma."  We found NARHS and nervously paid the five hundred dollars to ensure we had something to verify all the work we did on a daily basis.  

Two years later Customized Education Designs acquired NARHS and with that came even better accreditation.  We just graduated that first student this past year.  She was accepted into North Georgia State University.  The application process was a breeze because we had already done all the portfolio reviews with NARHS and CED.  We were not required to show or provide anything other than what a public schooler would provide.  We sent a CED official transcript, sent our ACT scores and made sure to follow up with the college.  We kept expecting them to ask for additional documents.  That did not happen.  When I checked her application status and it read ACCEPTED, I screamed a huge Whoo-Hoo.  I can tell you, the regional accreditation of CED works and I am grateful.

As a side benefit, because I live in Georgia, we have what is called the HOPE scholarship, and my daughter qualifies for that scholarship based on this transcript from CED, because of its accreditation.  We will recoup all the money it took to pay for this service and probably more.  We just couldn't be happier.

Please share this message with those homeschoolers who are uncertain about whether or not this system works.  IT WORKS!  


Thanks for Everything!
