Duggar Homeschooling: The Advantages of Online College Courses

We get a lot of questions about whether our kids are pursuing higher education and what online courses we use. For some of our high-school age and college-age kids our family really likes CollegePlus. The great thing about it is it's a distance learning program, for the most part, and then you have a coach who will come alongside you and assist you in studying and preparing for your courses.
Taking the courses online works with your schedule so that you're still able to work or pursue other experiences while studying. Also, the cost is minimal compared to the brick-and-mortar universities, and as large family with a debt-free policy we've been really pleased with that.
A few of our kids are taking courses right now, and I think some of them will go for their degrees in whichever areas they decide, and then I think some of them may not really go for the full degree -- but they're getting knowledge and information for skills that they want to gain. All my kids are different, and it will be interesting as time goes on to see which direction each one will take.
