There are many educational opportunities available to home educators today. When considering the options available, inspect carefully the differences between programs. Many academic programs claim to be the best or most rigorous or most effective. How are these claims substantiated? Is there data available or are these claims merely opinion? At Equip, we believe in quantifying our success. When we say our students are obtaining the best education possible, we back it up. We recommend that prospective parents ask each program the following questions.
Grades How do I know if my home educated student is succeeding?  Without accountability and objective grading, determining student progress becomes almost impossible. Equip students are required to turn in assigned homework and all homework is graded. Equip instructors spend countless hours grading student assignments such as tests, homework, and writing assignments. Feedback and accountability are indispensable elements of the educational process. Equip students earn a grade in each class and an overall GPA. Equip also stands steadfastly against grade inflation. If your student is an "A" student at Equip, it is very likely they will be anywhere.
Admissions Office To what colleges and universities have your graduates been admitted?  One of the best measures of a program of home education is the final result. At Equip, we are proud to say that our students gain admission to some of the best colleges and universities in the country. Graduates of Equip have been admitted to Hillsdale College, Emory University, University of Miami, University of Florida, West Point, Florida State University, Virginia Military Institute, NYU Polytechnic, University of North Florida, Mississippi State, Pepperdine, FAU, and others. The proof is in the pudding. Equip graduates get admitted!
AP College Advising  Equip Education students get into college! But that doesn't mean it is easy. Successful college application contain multiple elements which must all be presented carefully to achieve the desired effect. Equip Education counsels our families through this process. We hold seminars for our families each year, supply the necessary forms and training, and stand ready to provide feedback through the process. Don't go through it alone. Don't make an experiment of your first child. Join Equip and get the advice and support you need.
Admissions Office Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA)  Equip Education maintains its own HSLDA group. Once you have a student in Equip Education, you are free to move your HSLDA membership to the Equip group or start a new HSLDA membership with our group. Whether or not you continue with Equip or graduate out your student, you are welcome to remain in our HSLDA group for as long as you like. If you are not sure whether or not you want to join, we assure you that you do! From the HSLDA Website: "Home School Legal Defense Association is a nonprofit advocacy organization established to defend and advance the constitutional right of parents to direct the upbringing and education of their children and to protect family freedoms. We provide homeschooling-related legal advice and representation to our 84,000+ member families, promote homeschool-friendly legislation at the state and federal levels, and offer information and resources to encourage and support all homeschoolers." Feel free to ask us about joining the Equip HSLDA group. You get a $20 annual discount on HSLDA dues!!
Transcript Do I receive any help building a convincing transcript for college?  Producing a convincing transcript for a homeschooler is quite a challenge. Equip boosts families over this obstacle in several ways: 1) Equip maintains a cumulative transcript on each student that includes all academic work completed with Equip, 2) we advise families on how to convert the Equip transcript into a home education transcript which includes elements outside the Equip program, and 3) we offer additional effective strategies to families applying to college. Additionally, we never send an Equip transcript to anyone but the parent. Equip is not a school, therefore we do not respond to requests for transcripts except from parents of our students. Ultimately, the information on the Equip transcript is still within your control since the parent is responsible for the student's education under Florida law.
