  1. My son (or sons?) will be doing BTB Spanish. I'm considering adding Homeschool Spanish Academy, one class a week. My other son used HSA last year and really enjoyed it, but the cost of using that as our main Spanish curriculum is more than we want to spend- $600 for one credit.
  2. Thank you for mentioning this, we were just talking about it. You're right, we'll have to make sure he's done before he graduates high school.
  3. I appreciate everyone's comments. I've wondered how his DE classes would affect college acceptance and scholarship. He is determined to get his Associate degree in computer science before he graduates high school. I believe he is on schedule to graduate with his Associate degree summer after his senior year.
  4. This is a good point, I will need to look into this further as he is doing some honor level classes.
  5. Thanks everyone. He's our first so this is the first time we are dealing with this. The college he likes guaranteed he would be accepted based on his high ACT score, so we were looking at Merit scholarships and how much of a difference he would get between having a 3.6 versus a 3.8. A couple thousands dollars difference, but not a deal breaker.
  6. I'm not familiar with Common App. The college we talked to didn't mention that, just told him to apply on their website?
  7. We are getting ready to apply to colleges and finishing all the paperwork. My son will have a couple dozen dual enrolled courses from a community college he took through high school. If he took two social studies classes (or computer classes, or whatever) in one year, can I just take the one with the higher grade to put on his transcript, or will that look suspicious if we have ALL his courses transferred over to his college. Would anyone even know we didn't put them all on the transcript?
  8. I had my sons do a couple timed practice tests before they took the ACT. It helped them learn to manage their time, as they hadn't taken timed tests before.
  9. Yes, we got accomodations for my son on the ACT. I'm guessing the SAT would be similar. We had to send in a copy of his test with the diagnosis, and choose what accomodations he would need. It was pretty quick and easy.
  10. My sons will be in 11th and 12th grades next year. The both take college classes, so they sign up for classes based on what is offered that semester, then we fill in the rest at home. They usually take social studies, computer science and english at their colleges, and we do science, math and foreign languages at home. They will probably do: Derek Owens Pre-Calc Derek Owens Physics Foreign Language ?
  11. My son is completeing the honors questions on the tests, how do I grade those? Are those points averaged in with the rest of the questions, or are they added like extra credit? Thanks!
  12. That is definitely another consideration- the self teaching aspect. So far they have done very well with no outside help or videos. They prefer a textbook they work through on their own, though they do work together often times. Thank you for your comment. :)
  13. I'm looking at my options for Algebra 2, and I see that Dr. Callahan uses College Algebra with Trig for his text. My sons have used Jacob's Algebra 1 and Geometry and it was a good fit for them. I'm wondering if this would be a good option for Algebra 2, or if I should switch to Foerster.
