  1. Hi, Has anyone used Royal Fireworks Press? My DD has taken a creative writing class and tutoring from the company, and we have been extremely impressed. Has anyone put a child into one of their online English Language programs? I have used their home curriculum for the past two years, but my DD has not taken the online curriculum. Any advice? Thank you!
  2. I am happy to hear your boys made friends outside of academics. My kids are working on it, but friends are not always easy to come by. My DS is determined that the only way he will make more friends is to go to PS. I do not think he is correct, but maybe he needs to discover that for himself.
  3. I also am going to look at Online G3 and Athena’s Advanced Academy. Thanks!
  4. I love the idea of taking a week of time and making it like a PS week. I also know he can shadow, which is a good idea. I have not thought about the transfer of credits, however. We are going to meet with someone at the school, so that definitely will be a question. Thank you!!!!

  6. We are struggling with how much to allow our DS to choose his own course: going to PS vs putting our foot down and telling him we know what is best. DS is our social butterfly even though he struggles with making friends. Our PS is FINE, but I fear that he will not achieve much, as he is not super motivated unless it's something he truly wants to do. Currently, he claims that everything is wrong with homeschooling, and his life would be oh-so much better if he were at PS. Anyone else struggling with their kids claiming they want more social or want to go to PS? Thanks!
  7. Thank you so much for your suggestions. I will look into those options.
  8. Hello, My two children, DD and DS, are homeschooled. My DS is in 8th grade and desperately wants to attend the PS. My husband and I are not thrilled by the idea, however. DS wants to attend the PS so he can be "normal" and "like everyone else" he knows. He is not socially isolated, however, as he participates in Boy Scouts, Crossfit, and mountain biking. He also takes three classes from WTMA, but there is no way to "meet" his classmates. There are no coops that I know of or am interested in joining in our town. My question is: Does anyone know of an online forum for homeschool kids to meet and share notes on the good and bad of homeschooling life? Any other online hangout? Any ideas? Thoughts? Thank you!
  9. Hello, I have a soon-to-be 9th grader. Does anyone have advice about online high schools? He currently is taking three courses at WTMA, which are fabulous. I would love to continue with the curriculum throughout high school, but I am concerned that because WTMA is not accredited, nor a "proper" high school, competitive colleges will not look at him. Furthermore, as a friend asked, oh, will he have to get a GED since he will not graduate from a school? Any advice? Thoughts? Thank you!
