homeschool to college
College fairs designed specifically for homeschool students can be of great benefit, as the seminars and other materials are prepared with the unique needs of homeschoolers in mind. One such upcoming fair, the Pacific Northwest Homeschool College Fair, will be held Saturday, Oct. 15, at Cascadia Community College in Bothel, WA. The fair is from noon-1:45 p.m.; seminars from 2-4 p.m. Parking and attendance is free.
