As my daughter enters middle school I'm looking ahead to high school, Yikes! This is the point where a lot of home school families stop and the child goes back to school...parents just don't think they can handle high school, transcripts and credits. Well, I've done lots of research and I plan on going all the way with my children. I want to be the one to issue that High School Diploma and be involved watching them take on more responsibility as they blossom into young adult ladies. As a guide, we will be using Far Above Rubies by Lynda Coats. Here is where you can order Far Above Rubies. Here is a very well written review by Martha Robinson.
NOTE: Please consider purchasing Far Above Rubies here. The author, Lynda Coats has been doing missionary work teaching the Native Americans in Arizona over this past school year. She would like to continue her work in the fall. By purchasing this curriculum by May 15th, not only will you help her continue this wonderful mission, you will receive 13 bonus items too. Please see this link for more information.
(Note: I do not receive any compensation for your purchase or for advertising this curriculum.)
I love free stuff, on our tight budget anything we don't have to pay for helps us tremendously. So I've found the following links to FREE high school courses:
(Free) Online High School Courses & Curriculum Materials offers links to other websites. They have links to high school classes on English, Math, Foreign Languages, Physical Education, Social Science/History, Science etc. I have not investigated all the links available so please review them before sitting your child down with them.
