I am homeschooled(CAVA-k12) and I don't know how to get college recommendations during my senior year? I have online teachers but I feel like they don't know me well enough to write a college recommendation. What should I do?

Your grades should speak for themselves. Take as much AP and CLEP as you can cram in, so colleges don't have to wade through a huge portfolio of work to try to figure out how you stack up. For recommendations, look to anyone respectable in your family; anyone you've worked for for a while; anyone who oversees extracurriculars you've attended (Girl Scouts, Civil Air Patrol, 4H, swim team, martial arts, whatever).
