Homeschooling and Need Support?

“I’ve been meaning to write you for days to thank you for all your help with the applications. We are happy with her acceptances and grateful for the merit aid that she received. There’s no way we could have gotten her additional applications done without your help. I obviously am extremely grateful.”

"Hey Farrar, Jill, How can I hug you both ;-)? Accept some remote ones from me! After a long hard wait, I'm happy to inform that my little one has been accepted at OHS. Thank you so much!! Your help was tremendous for us; the app showcased who he truly is and I'm very grateful to you both."

"My daughter had an interview today with a college that isn’t test optional for homeschool applicants. She doesn’t have test scores. Not only did they waive the requirement for test scores but they also complimented her homeschool documentation. They said her course descriptions and school profile were clear cut and left no unanswered questions. I couldn’t have done it without Jill Harper and Farrar Miles Williams!"

"She got into every school she applied to. You both made all the difference for her and I’m just so grateful."
