My daughter started high school this year. I still can hardly believe it.
This is our seventh year homeschooling, but this year I felt like a newbie. I was not prepared for the transition into the high school years. This was a strange new world of electives and credit hours, graduation requirements, and GPAs. I pored over homeschool high school curriculum choices to see whether one would meet our homeschooling goals. Here are some things that I took away from that experience.
Homeschool High School Curriculum Options
There are an overwhelming number of high school homeschool curriculum options. You can find a textbook for just about any course that your high schooler would like to take. Many online educational programs and in-person co-op classes also exist. Additionally, if your high schooler meets certain requirements, some colleges offer dual-credit courses that count for both high school and college credit.
Some homeschool options offer accredited degrees. Currently, no states require homeschoolers to enroll in an accredited program. But some homeschoolers do so to qualify for certain scholarships or gain acceptance into certain universities. When determining whether accreditation is right for your homeschool, you will want to consider your child’s future plans. You can learn more about accreditation in the post “Accredited Homeschool Programs: Advantages and Disadvantages.”
