Cleaning house! I'm trimming down the big list to make it more manageable. ALL the removed links will be in this post. If a link you submitted is relegated to this post, please don't take it personally. It's not. MOST of the links here are ones that I added on my own. If I were being totally unbiased I'd trim down the art sections even further and just remove my pet section (Film Appreciation), but I just can't bear to do it. We need art, especially in hard times. The arts are part of what makes us uniquely human.
Ambleside Online K-12 – This is a Charlotte Mason inspired program that uses mostly vintage, public domain books. Books not available for free can normally be found via the library or substituted with another title. You'll need to find something for math and foreign language. (Removing because there can be a lot of non-public domain books to buy to make this work. I still have a soft spot for AO, though.)
