When it comes to High School most parents decide that this is the time to throw in the towel and send their high schooler to school. After all of the years that you have spent teaching, training, and preparing your new high schooler, why give up now?! This is the time when they can flourish right before your eyes!
It’s too hard to homeschool high schoolers? Is that what you think? Let’s take a look at all of the incredible resources that you as a parent have at you fingertips, shall we?
If you have been homeschooling from the beginning, this is for you.
If this is your first year homeschooling, this is ALSO for you.
No one person is exempt from these benefits. Most of them are easily adaptable to fit into your style of homeschooling. Don’t know your style? That’s okay, once you get rolling, it will become easier to identify. Even the “hanging on by the seat of your pants” style works in a pinch, so no worries friend!
The first resource that I want to share about is an online program that fits into your life with ease, SchoolouseTeachers.com is available from pre-K all the way through high school. Each class is easy to understand and is perfect for structured leaners as well as self-paced learners. A peek at some of the classes for high school:
- Animal Science
- Creative Writing
- Renaissance History
- Classical Archaeology
- American Folklore
- Advanced Public Speaking
- Music Theory I & II
- Computer Science / Programming
- Drawing with Realism
And those are just a small portion of the available classes that you will find on SchoolhouseTeachers.com. This online site is one that I personally have used and will continue to use with my high schooler. I love that it is easy access to an incredible amount of well laid out classes.
Another resource that works well for me as a mama that homeschools a high schooler, is digital products. And if you know me AT ALL you know that I am all about saving money. Homeschooling is not always cheap, so I grab the sales when I can!
Check out some of the products that I use for my high schooler.
I am a huge fan of audios now that I have older children. It is the easiest way to learn history as we travel or even while we are out running errands.
I am still a firm believer that any and all copywork and notebooking should be a part of my high schoolers education. Not only does it encourage neat penmanship, it also helps to instill good words and ideas in their hearts. Here are a few companies that you will find useful for these purposes:
As this is just a small peek at some of the resources that we as homeschoolers to high schoolers have, I want to assure you that you Absolutely CAN homeschool all the way through high school. With keeping in line with all of your state’s regulations, you can provide a quality education to your high schooler. Along with a little encouragement from a fellow mama that completely understands your plight and some excellent resources, it can not only be done, it can be done well!
With digital products you have the ability to keep these and use them over and over again. One purchase can cover YEARS of schooling!
In His Grace.
