Need to help your student choose electives in your homeschool high school? It isn’t as easy as we may think it is. They can’t take everything so they need to be selective, yet allow room for discovering new things they may like – not the easiest thing to do. Help your student choose electives for high school based on 16 career clusters to make things a little easier.
I know it is hard enough having your student complete their core subjects. Adding electives seems unnecessary, or at least you may have thought just how important electives can really be.
Electives are important for many reasons but for me, I see is two ways. Either your student is college-bound and needs electives to be more attractive to colleges and to stand out or your student isn’t college-bound and electives allow your student to explore other fields which they may be able to make a career out of.
Either way you look at it, electives are non-negotiable. When that is established, your kids then need to decide which electives they want to take. Choosing your homeschool high school electives based on 16 career clusters, as put forth by the U.S. Department of Education, can narrow down your child’s choices to benefit him/her in the future.
