  1. Thank you for all the responses. I do appreciate the input. 😁👍
  2. Hello, I am thinking about doing BJU biology for our son who will be going into 10th grade. For anyone who has used it before, is the lab kit necessary? Also, any recommendations on excellent high school biology courses are welcome. Thanks so much!
  3. Hello, i was wondering if anyone has used My Homeschool Math class for their teen? I’m thinking of signing my son up for the geometry class, but I would love to hear if anyone has experiences to share. Thanks so much!
  4. Thank you, Rootann and Lori D. Those acceptance lists are quite impressive! I didn’t see the school my son is interested in, but I did many well known ones in our state. We are in Georgia. I had seen the Motherlode posts, but had seen that the dates went back a few years and wasn’t sure if the information would still be relevant. I will go check them out though when I have a bit of time to really look without distractions. Thank you! 😃
  5. Thank you, Lori D. & alewife. 😊 I’m not panicking, just a bit frustrated & disappointed. I too, feel that the lady who answered didn’t really know. I have high hopes that I’ll hear much better news come Monday. I mean, it’s literally stated on their main site for admissions how home educated students should apply. Thanks for the encouragement! 😁
  6. Thanks once again to everyone replying to this post. I’m reading everything & getting excited about homeschooling our son without having to use an accredited program. That is, until a few minutes ago. I called the university that our son wants to attend. It local, about 15 minutes down the road, & where he’d like to go. The lady I spoke with told me that he WILL have to have a diploma from an accredited program. What?!? I had read online that home educated students that didn’t go through an accredited program could apply using what they call the “portfolio method” which has a ch
  7. Hello! I’m wondering if anyone has experience with Etsy? I am seriously thinking if setting up a shop and selling crafts, but I am not sure where to even start. I’ve done in home childcare for more than 17 years, but ended that business about a year ago. I have sold items on Facebook & online yard sales, but I really don’t enjoy that too much. I know how to sell on Ebay, but I don’t use it for selling crafts. I need to get a new business going, otherwise I may end up going back into childcare. That’s not a bad option, but I have always wanted my own crafting business and I wan
  8. Hello, I would love to hear of recommendations for various online high school courses please. Id love to hear about ones for the main core classes, for Spanish II, and ones that would be great for videography, creating video games or movies, or cinematography (electives). It’d be great to see courses that involved live classes, or just more interaction than just staring at a screen all day. Also. , I’d love to hear experiences you’ve had using them, what your child thought, or any other useful information you’re willing to share. I’m thinking about outsourcing a few classes for ou
  9. Thank you, Lori D. 😊 Reading all these responses is getting me excited about homeschooling through high school. By outsourcing certain subjects, then helping out with others I feel more comfortable with, I think I COULD actually do this. My goal is to make sure that our son genuinely enjoys learning and is more motivated about school. Sure, I know there are subjects that just aren’t all that enjoyable and we just need to work through them the best we can (which is a teaching lesson in itself), but that doesn’t have to apply to all 6 or 7 courses he takes. The curriculum with the onl
  10. Thank you all SO much for your replies and information. I am very surprised to hear that we don’t have to use an accredited program necessarily. All I’ve heard when I began to look into his 9th grade year was to make sure the program was accredited. Geez, I have a lot to learn! It all still sounds a bit scary and overwhelming to me, but I’m going to research everything more in the next few days before I just decide to register our son with the online program. Again, it’s not that it was a bad program, but what I didn’t like was the amount of time he was staring at a screen. Plus, it was
  11. UPDATE! A few of you had read my post from last week saying that the college told me our son must go through an accredited program in order to be considered for acceptance. I was frustrated and disappointed in this news, but also knew that person I spoke to may have been mistaken. Well, the home education specialist was back in the office today and he confirmed that the lady who told me that last Friday was indeed wrong. I’m soooo relieved to hear this, and now I can finally make some official decisions on our sons schooling choices this year. Yay!!! 👏😁👏😁👏 Hello, This p
  12. Good Morning, & many thanks to everyone who responded. 😁 Evanthe: Are your children actually playing at the local high school (football, track)? I don’t think (could be wrong) we have that option here. Maybe you’re talking about them playing for a recreational league, at the high school level. I jus found that interesting and was curious. Thanks!
  13. Thank you! ALL great things to consider. Yes, I should know by now not to allow others to sway my opinion of what is best for our son, especially when it comes to schooling. I knew posting here would help me consider things I had not yet thought about. 👍😁
  14. Hello Everyone, I was wanting to get some input regarding the pros and cons of online schooling vs public school. This is for high school. I have several things I have considered and written down, but want to see if there are things I’m missing possibly. A little background: We chose to have our son do online schooling for 9th grade with Alpha Omega Academy (fully accredited program). Overall, it’s worked pretty well. As with anything, there are pros and cons. We are now at the point of the year where we evaluate what we want to do for the following year. And, of course, we are get
  15. MrsRobinson, here’s some info about what the numbers should read to be considered safe. Scarlett, I’m so sorry for the loss of your friend. 😢
