Find a Consultant

As of June 1, 2022, I, Carol Topp, CPA, am semi-retired and will no longer be offering one-on-one consultations. Instead, I offer you a selection of carefully selected, qualified, highly experienced homeschool consultants all who have lead (or are still leading) homeschool nonprofits themselves!

I have 100% confidence in these fabulous, knowledgeable, and skilled individuals. If they have a question or want clarification, they will reach out to me to assist you.
