"Smarter By 1 Degree was life-changing for me. I enjoyed learning again. I was in public schools for most of my life. In my junior year, I began homeschooling. I started Smarter By 1 Degree and was able to earn my High School Diploma and my Bachelor's Degree... plus the BEST part was that I was able to spend more time riding and training my horse because there is no busywork. I highly recommend Smarter By 1 Degree."
