What is in the Membership?

The Simple Scholar Membership gives homeschool parents access to training, mentoring, resources and tools, that help you to leverage time and money in educating your children.  With an in-depth background in college preparation, as well as alternatives to college, Dianne Kelley provides extensive and comprehensive guides to everything you need. Her approach is gentle, yet direct. There is also a new LITE membership to provide essential homeschool training and popular workshops, as well as a more clarified free version. No fluff, no nonsense, just the straight information and guidance.
