It might be easy for homeschooling families to take for granted the relative, basic freedom we enjoy in teaching our own children, but such an atmosphere of freedom would not be possible without the pioneering efforts of many professional educators along the way. These people possessed the vision to realize that children learn best in other ways than those promulgated in the public school model. They also had faith that they could work with parents, rather than independent of them.

One such pioneer is Dr. Pat Montgomery, founder of Clonlara School in Ann Arbor, Michigan. In 1967, Dr. Pat pursued her then-rare philosophy of a student-centered curriculum, whereby the student participates actively in his/her own education, with the instructor acting as a knowledgeable guide, facilitating the child’s natural curiosity. Dr. Pat opened the bricks-and-mortar Clonlara School, which still serves local students who wish to enjoy a fully-accredited and unique atmosphere for learning.

In 1979, Dr. Pat opened the Clonlara Home Based Education Program, allowing families to take advantage of her fresh and successful teaching methods, no matter where they lived. Since her philosophy views the world as the classroom, homeschoolers were an organic, natural “fit” for her teaching style.

CollegePlus! is the answer you’ve been looking for.

Now you can earn your degree for under $15,000 and in two years or less! This program is great for homeschoolers who are highly motivated and work well on their own. In fact, many homeschoolers are combining high school and college to graduate with their bachelor’s degrees when their peers are finishing high school!

CollegePlus! students take ownership of their education by studying at their own pace and amassing college credits at an accelerated rate, finally graduating through a regionally accredited distance learning college. They do this by taking CLEP and DANTES tests that are worth college credits and are accepted at over two thousands colleges and universities around the country. This process, called credit by exam, costs significantly less than the per credit fees at the typical college and university—each exam costs about $80 and is worth between 3 and 12 college credits. Compare this to $250 per credit at a brick and mortar university and the cost different becomes obvious.
