  1. Yeah, I didn't see that! I hate that he doesn't use a textbook though and wasn't sure if that would be a problem (for NCAA). I think it would be a good fit if it was thorough enough. My oldest child took DO but my middle one seems to think he might need a little help and that way once a week he could ask questions if he had any.
  2. My son is very good at math, doesn't like the idea of having to sit for 3 hrs. a week listening to lectures but would like one class to go over assignments possibly one day a week. He took Algebra II this year with Foersters using Math without borders (we have done Derek Owens all prior to this but thought we'd try this since it was cheaper this year) he has done really well we are now on chapter 10 but that begins full on trig and I didn't realize and he is having some difficulty and I can't help him! Evidently Veritas Press uses the same book for PreCalculus and trig begins on chapter 9.
  3. I am glad you asked this and debating the same question. For my stem kid we did Owens because it went through Calculus and he liked working at his own pace. But contemplating switching up my middle son just for PreCal with Mr. D. since they offer a live component and we are switching to Statistics his senior year anyway. Thanks for the insights!
  4. No problem, and good point! I think we are just going to stick with where he is...she has been great with him and said she'd tutor him until he went off to college.
  5. Thanks for your response...how often did your child meet with the instructor? Did they have set things for them to study or a plan for them during their off days?
  6. Were you able to get college credit or could you test out? How did that work for you all? We are up for suggestions! The professor was very helpful and might be open to suggestions. Thanks!
  7. My son did Potters for Arabic I & II and has loved his teacher there...considering on staying on but if we could get college credit starting in 11th it would be a plus. My son met with the professor at our community college and was very impressed with where he was at and stated he could skip the intro class. Wish we could work out our times or find a place closer.
  8. Anyone know of a dual enrollment option for Arabic that has many levels that meets live? My son has taken online Arabic with Potters School for a couple of years now, but wants to start college courses his junior year. We met with an Arabic college professor today and was very impressed with his ability and was allowing him to skip a couple courses to where he could begin in his class but they only offer two courses and then we are not sure where to go after that. We would hate to skip around too much. We are looking for an online option that is live not self paced...he wants to really le
  9. Thanks for all of your suggestions...funny you mentioned VMI, my brother attended there and they have a high school program for the summer there too. I think he will probably do an international studies major with Arabic as his foreign language. Seems like more opportunities there and where he can go military or CIA whatever he decides after college. It has been fun learning about all options and really appreciate all of your ideas and thoughts!
  10. Thank you all for your ideas...a lot to chew on. I was looking at other majors with Arabic as a minor. I was excited to see some of the ideas for summer immersion programs that would be a good for him as well. He is hoping for a basketball scholarship but hey he is only 6'2" right now so he needs to get a bit more height but he is getting there and has two more years to grow...the doc always said he'd be 6'4" so not center positions. So we are looking at more Division II and probably NAIA. Christian school is very important to us and we are really hoping to make it happen- but money talks
  11. Thanks everyone, yes we are looking on the East coast...preferably near VA. Thank for all of your ideas!!
  12. Thanks Claire that is good to know! Funny they picked the same two languages 😊
  13. I accidentally logged in wrong ... Homeschoolmom3 was my old user name...trying to log back in.
  14. He has read quite a large amount...he is one of those kids who I have to tell to stop reading and go do something else because if left he would just read ALL day! I haven't heard of the Moomintrolls, Great Brain books or the 39 clue books you mentioned so will have to do some digging there and I won't allow my kids to read Harry Potter...but as to the others yes he has done most. I am interested in a few of those older series you all mentioned and am so excited to check out if I can find them. ? I also found at the library the Redwall series which he has not done along with Chronicles of
  15. W He has read some of the Sugar Creek Gang series but wasn't hooked. ? May try again....I am going to look into the others you have mentioned. You all are awesome! Great ideas!!
  16. Yes he has I forgot to mention he has finished the capital mysteries and read some of the a-z mysteries but I haven't heard of the Hollisters....will check out! (wow they look great! never saw those before thanks for the suggestion!) I was hoping to find good literature rich books but not sure if I'll find that in a series. ? Thanks everyone!
  17. Thanks everyone for your ideas...sad that many we have read but maybe he'd like to read again. Thanks for your words of encouragement and I guess I shouldn't worry too much I was just trying to see if there was more out there I am not aware of. ? Yes you are right he loves mysteries. We have done the Saturday's too because of his Penderwicks love. And yes, Lori D is awesome! Lloyd's Alexander books -The Chronicles of Prydain I am unfamiliar with so will check out is there anything questionable for a 7 yr. old to read? I am looking into the Redwall series too, looks promisi
  18. Thanks for your ideas...unfortunately he has read most of those and is a HUGE fan of all Roald Dahl books. ? There is a couple in there I haven't heard of and will check out...
  19. My son is an avid reader and a very strong one at that but at age 7 he is stuck on reading these chapter books that are well par for literature? I am trying to find some good series that he could read that would perk his interest and be literature rich. He loves series... ? Any suggestions? He has gone through the Cul de Sac Kids (loves these and still rereads them over and over...um why?) The Boxcar Children &The Bobsey Twins and most of the Magic Tree House books (trying to steer away from these). Thanks for any suggestions! Forgot to mention he loved The Penderwicks series
  20. Thanks....I finally figured it out! It was under the wrong email. ?
  21. The adult version would be fine but I just deleted or had him skip the inappropriate parts. Uhh...

    Please let me know if you are willing to part with either or both and how much you would take for them looking to pay about 1/2 retail value. Thanks!


  23. We put in our first deposit and are glad the roller coaster is over and we can move on. :) We are all excited about his choice and the scholarships he was given..couldn't do much better anywhere else even community college so we are happy! Of course my hubby and I are secretly celebrating since it is our Alma mater :) Go LU Flames
