Dear Dr. Stobaugh,

Let me be very clear. I am telling this not to brag but to praise God for how He has blessed us. We give Him all the thanks and the glory! God has provided the wisdom, discernment, opportunities, patience, finances, etc. I am telling you this because I want to thank you for guiding us on an excellent path. We all learned academic excellence and respect for others in debating worldviews. My husband and I have not graduated with any college degrees. We love God and give Him the glory for guiding us in educating our children and we thank you for helping us with this also. I often spoke with you at the home school fair in Denver and immediately was drawn to the like-mindedness of what you had developed and what I wanted my children to learn. "For Such a Time As This" was my mantra from God. And then I saw it was yours also. I know my sons are here, as we all are, for such a time as this, and He told me early on what they would become in order to serve the Lord. I kept His promises in my heart. Your Rhetoric and Language Arts curriculums fulfilled everything in those areas that I wanted to teach my sons. I say this because your curriculum not only developed academic excellence, it taught them to THINK - to think about what they heard, read, and experienced - and then to EXPRESS what they thought. How can we debate intelligently if we do not study what the Bible says and what the people of the world have produced? It taught them to think about all the worldviews and see the excellence of Christianity. It taught them to write with purpose!

Thank you and God bless you, your family, and your endeavors.

Teaching World View - 1PM, Sept 15 or
Teaching World View - 1PM, Oct 11
In such a time as this, in the Post-Christian era, at the beginning of the twenty first century, we need to exhibit great discernment in evaluating the world view of our culture. Dr. Stobaugh urges students and parents do exactly that. He employs a cultural paradigm (as opposed to a political/philosophical paradigm): Christian Theism, Romanticism, Deism, Naturalism, Realism, Existentialism, Absurdism.

How to Write Goals & Objectives - 3PM, Sept 15 or
How to Write Goals & Objectives - 3PM, Oct 11
The maxim that “if one is aiming for nothing, one always reaches it!” is a true statement. This very practical workshop will teach parents how to articulate and to evaluate quantifiable cognitive, behavioral, and affective (i.e., spiritual) goals. The participant will leave with many helpful handouts including goals and objectives from all the core subjects.

SAT and ACT Preparation for Christian Students - 11AM, Sept 20
The secular ACT and SAT are the single most important credential students bring to admission committees. Fortunately, home schooled Christians, of all race, gender, and nationality are the leading scorers in these exams. Preparing for these exams is one avenue God has before our children to prepare to be the kind of Christians who will change their world no matter what the obstacles. In light of the changes to the new 2016 SAT I, this workshop is especially relevant. Dr. Stobaugh has scored more than 25,000 CollegeBoard SAT essays and has many pertinent insights about this part of the ACT & SAT. No family with a college bound student should miss this workshop!

How to be Admitted to College and Receive Substantial Scholarships - 1PM, Sept 27
With so many high SAT/AP scores in the homeschool community, there will be many more opportunities to go to college. How do we know which college God is calling us to attend? How does one get accepted? Dr. Stobaugh, who recruits for Ivy League schools (e.g., MIT), will offer helpful insights. He will argue that AP scores are more valuable than community college courses and will alert parents to costly, online degree options that will be dead ends for students.

Writing the College Admission Essay - 3PM, Oct 4
This workshop gives some practical insights into how to write an admission essay. This year alone, five hundred thousand college applicants will write college admission essays. Slightly less than one-half will be rejected by their first choice school, while only about ten percent will gain admission to the nation’s thirteen top colleges. With acceptance rates at all-time lows, with admission committees exhibited well-founded concern about writing deficiencies among admitted freshman, high SAT/ACT scores are important. But the admission essay has gained more and more importance. Whether students are applying to Harvard, Wheaton, or their local state school, they will write an admission essay.

Designing a High School Program - 1PM, Nov 15
For such a time as this every moment counts. With so many opportunities available we need to be very wise in our designing of a high school curriculum track. The problem is not that there is a paucity of choices but that there is a plethora of good choices!!! Dr. Stobaugh will discuss in great depth how to develop a winning transcript.

Identifying and Teaching the Gifted and Talented Child - 3PM, Nov 15
Most of the culture in the next 50 years will be created by G&T people. A disproportionate number of those G&T people will be evangelical and homeschooled. What an opportunity! How do we identify G&T students and then teach them.

Teaching Composition to the Elementary and High School Student - 1PM, Oct 11
To whatever our children are called for such a time as this, they need to know how to write. Writing is the quintessential skill for young people preparing to be 21st century apologists. This workshop is an overview of the goals and objectives of writing from pre-K to college. The participant will hear that I believe that the nurture of the heart is as important as the teaching of writing skills.

How to Teach Literary Criticism - 3PM Sept 13 or
How to Teach Literary Criticism - 3PM Nov 1
C.S. Lewis, perhaps the greatest apologist of the 20th century, was not a theologianChe was a classicist, a student of literature. I will specifically address the urgency of learning how to analyze literature both in light of college preparation needs as well as a basis for apologetics. It is my firm belief, and fervent prayer, that God is calling forth a new C.S. Lewis in this generation and that he/she will probably emerge from a community that understands, analyzes, and appreciates its literature.

The PSAT - 1PM Sept 13
The PSAT/NMSQT is the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test. The PSAT is a great primer for the SAT, and even the ACT, but it's more than just a trial run. PSAT scores are used to identify National Merit Scholars and award merit scholarships.
