Because our enrollees extend nation wide, we have students who have explored almost every possible avenue after their secondary home education experience. They have entered university, college, apprenticeship programs, the workplace, or continued their education at home using other distance education courses. The vast majority of these students say that their Tree of Life diploma was certainly beneficial in helping them gain entrance to a post-secondary institution, but we still recommend that parents and students keep a well developed portfolio that documents anything that can be considered part of the educational process.
This should include extra-curricular activities, work experience, volunteer service, certificates, letters of recommendation, standardised test scores, etc. It is also a good idea to open lines of communication with potential schools or work places two years prior to graduation in order to ascertain the best way for you to meet their requirements for entry without sacrificing your home school experience.
