No Regrets:  How Homeschooling Earned me a Master's Degree at Age Sixteen

The story of Alexandra's experiences growing up as a Southern Baptist homeschooled child from New Mexico earning her education at a highly accelerated pace.  At the age of fifteen, she became the youngest student ever to graduate from Brigham Young University in its 111 year history.  Her nine brothers and sisters were also homeschooled and completed their educations at a similar pace.

Alexandra recounts her family's experiences with warmth, humor and affection in this poignant narrative which draws the reader into the Swann household and allows him to meet Alexandra, her brothers and sisters, and her parents, John and Joyce Swann.

No Regrets is much more than a synopsis of the Swanns' educational achievements, however; it is a story of love, friendship, perseverance, sacrifice and the bonds of family.  The twentieth anniversary edition of this homeschool classic contains a new foreword by the author.

"I especially enjoyed the character sketches of each member of the Swann family, and I would recommend this eloquently written book to homeschool students, graduates, and parents." Tiffany Orthman Home Educating Family.

"I was...inspired by this sweet success story...I never felt pressured to accelerate my own children's progress or to switch to the programs the Swanns used. Instead, learning of the family's deep commitment to God's plan for them simply encouraged and empowered me to continue on the path He has given my family." Read thTina Hollenbeck's review on her blog Being Made New.
