  1. I am looking for any and all online class options for my middle school student. I am not looking for a full time program, rather something that will help take the load off of me in certain subjects. I have searched endlessly for a thread listing available options, but I came up with nothing, hence I figured we could all benefit from this one. Here are the options I know about. Would you please add to my list? Thanks a million. Here goes. . . (prices reported are just what came up in a quick Google search). Any opinions stated are just based on my experience. If you have experiences, please share. Even the best program may not be a good fit for every family. ;) *Landry Academy- Live classes. So far my kids have taken two classes, attended a couple intensives, and have participated in the online workshops. We are fans. The trick to this one is purchasing the classes ahead of time. Honestly it is cheapest to buy classes during their Black Friday and after Christmas sale. Grades 4-12. Price per class (semester) ranges from $97-$300 depending on when you buy them) *Freedom Project Education- Grades K-12 live classes. Roughly $1600 for a full load or $360 for a single class (2 semesters). I noticed that they offered a 20% discount in March last year. *Currclick- K-12 depending on the subject. Price varies. They offer live classes and online modules. *The Great Books Academy/ Angelicum Academy- Price varies by the amount of subjects. They offer B1G1 half off for siblings. *Classical Academic Press- They offer Latin via an online platform, but not via a live teacher. I have a membership to this, but I found that we liked the DVDs better. They are now offering classes for students in 7th-12 (poetry, Logic). *Memoria Press- K-12, Classes roughly $249 per semester. *Veritas Press- $545 per class (year long) for live instruction. Self paced modules available. *Logos Press- $545 for a year long class in the core subjects and I spied some electives for $345 a year. *Lukion Project- $269 per semester *Minecraft Homeschool- Offers a variety of 6 week courses (history related) for $10-$15 per session. My kids LOVE this one. *Heritage Histories- $50 per family. Each model has various levels and uses living classic books as the spine. There is not a live classroom component, but the lessons and tests are completed online. *ATTUNEUP- writing courses for middle and high school students, Tuition is suggested at $40 per kid per module, roughly $175 per semester. However, they don't turn away people that can't afford this. Pay what you can. Live class. *Homeschool Book Study- $125 per semester per family. Middle and high school literature classes available. Classes meet for an hour each week via a live class. Optional essay grading service is available. *Fortuigence- Online writing classes for middle and high school (I couldn't really find the info on the middle school options). Online modules are $37 each or get a 21 lesson package for $147. and. . . Go! What options do you know about? :) Thanks!
  2. Wilson Hill Academy (WHA) has posted their class schedules for next year. https://www.wilsonhillacademy.com WHA Schedule 2020-21.pdf
  3. Hi. First off let me tell you why I'm here. I have 2 sisters that homeschool their kids. While they do that, I teach Art in public schools. One day they mentioned to me that they couldn't find any art classes for their girls to take. They didn't want to teach the art lessons to them, they wanted someone else to teach the girls art. They also didn't want the girls to just do crafts. They thought that this wasn't educational for them. They looked everywhere for the girls and came up empty. There were places they could drive to, but they were over 60 miles away. That's where I came in. I mentioned that I could teach the girls the same lessons that I teach my classes. (Kindergarten to 8th grade) They jumped at the opportunity. They knew that I didn't teach the kids to create crafts, but actual art projects. They also knew that I love to incorporate other subjects into my lesson. One such example was when I was having my 1st graders draw Nesting Dolls and arrange them to show perspective, details, patterns and proportion. To introduce the project, I had a book that I read to them, then I brought out 2 actual Nesting Dolls from Russia. They gathered around one of the tables, so that they could all see. Then I showed them how the dolls worked and why they are called nesting dolls. It also so happened that the dolls from the story was painted in the same style as one of my nesting dolls. The kids were so excited about getting started and drawing their nesting dolls. They kept that excitement throughout the project, which was about 3 weeks long. I only get 40 minutes a week with the kids. So, after I taught them, they wanted more classes like that. They also told other homeschool friends about my art class. So that go the juices rolling. I could help other homeschool students experience educational art classes from their own home. I could record the projects and they could watch and follow along with me to create the projects on their own time. So I came up with Smart Art Club to do just that. And here I am sharing my art classes with other homeschool students and families. Right now the classes haven't be open yet and so we have a waiting list to join. I hate SPAM so I would never SPAM you. I am offering some discounts for those whom sign up. The classes will open in July. Sign up form Thanks for letting me rant. Ms. Cutler your future Art Teacher Smart Art Club
  4. Just a heads up for anyone who was waiting, Clover Valley Chemistry opened up March 1st for Registration. We are looking forward to this class next year, we've heard such great things:)

  7. Our math club director just sent out an invite to register for Areteem classes this summer. It looks like they offer camps and online courses, and are affiliated with universities like Georgetown University. Reputedly, they help students learn skills to prepare for contests like USA Computing Olympiad. Three of their alumni made of half of the U.S.A. team which won the 2015 International Mathematics Olympiad. Just leafing through their offerings, I was pretty impressed. They offer courses like: Discrete Math, Intro to Algorithms, Python Programming, AP Physics and Physics Olympiad, Math Challenge, etc. Has anyone taken their offerings? I'd be interested in hearing your opinions of their online courses and summer camps. Could this be a good accompaniment to AOPS, perhaps?
  8. It's time to start outsourcing. Trying to stay a step or two ahead in every subject isn't working anymore. Spanish will be the first to go. Does anyone know of online classes that start in the spring semester? I'm only finding ones that have the fall semester as a prerequisite. It looks like CTY might have one, but I cannot find what days it is offered. The only information I can find says the teacher will send out the days of the classes a few days before the class starts. What?!? :confused1: Am I reading that incorrectly? Do people really sign up and pay $$$ without knowing when the classes meet? Any input on CTY Spanish or other possibilities for a spring session of Spanish would be wonderful!
  9. I am interested in hearing suggestions for online classes for 7th and 8th graders. We have been doing Classical Conversations, but we have moved to a community that just started this year and most likely won't be offering Challenge classes A or B next year and I'm needing guidance for my junior high girls. I've read a few things about these classes and would like to hear feedback from those who have used them. Both my daughters love to read and my older child (in 8th grade next year) is very good an independent work and very responsible when the expectations are clear and above grade level in Language arts and at grade level in math. My younger daughter is a dreamer who loves animals and reading, also above grade level in reading and slightly below level in math, but less independent. My husband is in school and at home during the day, doing classes online, and I work nights as a nurse 3 days a week. Which of these classes would work well with our situation? I really desire a classical education for our girls but I'm having trouble being organized enough to make it happen and believe that we need to outsource some things. My husband and I have a lot of time to work with the kids, but not necessarily all during traditional school hours. Thank you in advance for any advice and insights.
  10. Possibly of interest to some of you. This was mentioned in the weekly email newsletter I receive from About.com about Distance Learning. Here's the link: http://distancelearn.about.com/od/virtualhighschools/fl/How-to-Take-Free-Online-AP-Classes-from-edX.htm?nl=1
  11. I know that online class providers are starting to update their websites and list when enrollment starts. I am looking for a lit class for my dd who will be in 9th grade, but I was hoping that we could all share our online class treasures here! What has REALLY worked for us this year -- Chemistry -- Chemadvantage http://www.chemadvantage.com/ Chemadvantage is run by the fellow who does AP chemistry for PA Homeschoolers. My older son took AP chemistry with him and loved it. This year the teacher offered Honors Chemistry in addition to AP chemistry. The Honors class is truly rigorous and has great labs. It has no class meetings. The assignments are all done on the web, with multiple submissions possible. The teacher is wonderful about getting back to students about questions quickly. My "If it has to do with school I don't like it" son loves this class and is learning a fantastic amount. I can't recommend the class highly enough. English -- both composition and introductory literature http://lt-tutorials.schools.officelive.com/default.aspx My son is doing the High School Composition class; my daughter is doing the Intro to Lit class. Both classes have been really well organized, with clear assignments, goals, and criteria. Students give feedback on each other's writing, which has been very helpful. The teacher's feedback has been excellent. The composition class does not have any discussions, but the lit class has optional discussions 2x/week that my dd has found fun and useful. My kids are doing several other online classes, but these are the ones that are just outstanding.
  12. Has anyone taken a class with currclick? I saw some positive reviews here for Mr. G's French class, and am considering signing up for that one, but I am a little hesitant about the site and just want to be sure everything is legitimate. It just seems a little odd that it seems so anonymous. Who is Mr. G? We don't even know his real name or see his picture or anything. Every other online class we have looked at shows the teacher's name, their bio, why they are they qualified to teach this subject, and even their picture. I mean, I would want to know the teacher of a class I am signing up my child to take, right? It is just so hard to know where the line is with the anonymity of the internet! Also, what platform do they use for the online classes? Do other students in the class see your name or your email? Can anyone alleviate my concerns or tell me anything more about currclick? Thanks!
  13. Somewhere on facebook another person asked if anyone had used http://alison.com. I started looking around and it appears there are some free courses on the site. So, has anyone on the hive used this website?
  14. Wondering if anyone has used their online Humanities class? I see a lot of literature listed, which I like but I'm wondering about the format of the class. Is it mostly discussions? Are there tests and papers? Pros and Cons to this class? Also wondering about waiting a year and just doing Wes Calihans class with Schola. Any thoughts?
  15. I am trying to compile a comprehensive list of online class offerings. Below is the list of links I have so far. If you know of any others, please post them. I will cross-post this to the K-8 board also. Thank you.

  16. Are there any group buys forming for the self-paced history? If not, I might be interested in forming one if there is sufficient interest.
  17. I am looking for recommendations for an online calculus class for my dd. She will be a senior this fall at a very small classical school. She was planning to take Calculus I, but there are only 2 other students who want to take the class, so the school won't offer it. They are open to letting her take an online class and giving credit for that, since they can't offer what she wants. I'm looking for something recorded or on DVD rather than live, because she'll need to access it as her schedule permits. I have several semesters of college calc, but it's been a really long time and I don't think relearning it in order to teach it is going to happen, but I could probably provide some support. I'm looking at Thinkwell, Ask Dr. Callahan, and Derek Owens so far. I don't think the Derek Owens is going to work because from what I can see on the website it's only offered live. Also, I think I prefer a course that lets her work at her own pace, rather than one that has hard and fast deadlines for turning in assignments and may not give her the option of working ahead when that's possible. Thinkwell seems like a pretty good alternative. I'm trying to figure out the differences between Calculus and AP Calculus. It looks like the Calculus course covers more material (two semesters of college calc?) and lists more contact hours. Is is more the equivalent of a year of college calculus? Also, dd isn't sure she likes the idea of having to do all the problems on the computer. I found an old post (~2008) that said that if you didn't enter the answer with exactly the right sequence of keystrokes, it would be counted wrong. We did sign up for their free trial, so we can see how that goes. I've heard good things about the Ask Dr. Callahan geometry DVD's, but I don't know anyone who's used Calculus. She does like the idea of actually having a hard copy of the textbook. Thoughts? Also, she's considering trying the AP Calc AB exam. Would either of these be better prep for that? Thanks for your help!

  21. Through whom do your high schoolers take online courses? I've seen Keystone mentioned here. I know MIT has the open courseware. What else is out there? We're not looking for full-time enrollment, but perhaps a class or two per year.
  22. We're still new to the whole online class thing, so I'm not sure how to handle grading disputes. My son took an online science class and it was going fine through Christmas, then it just fell apart. Teacher stopped posting quizzes, lab instructions and homework assignments. I sent several emails and finally received a reply that there had been a couple of deaths in the family and some other issues, but she would get it all taken care of soon. Now the class is over and my son is still trying to get all of his lab assignments so he can finish the class. She recorded his final exam grade incorrectly, but after several emails we got that straightened out. Now it seems that she is leaving out of his grade average the entire spring semester's homework assignments, and his research report grade is also recorded incorrectly. I've asked her about this and now she tells me that it is all in the average, she just isn't breaking it out for me to see. She also explained that she is officially "on vacation" but working 8+ hours per day on completing her classes. The final spring lab assignments are never going to get posted now, so he just needs to choose more labs from the fall list. Obviously, I'm frustrated. But my real question is, what should I do about his grade? Anything? I do not think it is being averaged correctly, but I can no longer find the list of how his class grades are calculated, so I guess that is just up to the teacher? It seems clear that she is through for the year and does not wanting to re-visit any grades at this time. According to her grades, he is very close to an A. When I look at his grades, I think it would be an 'A' if she were including his spring homework and correcting his research paper score in her grades. What would you do?
  23. I've heard wonderful things about the EPGY math program but can't seem to find much about their LAW (language arts & writing) program. The handful of reviews I found were mixed. Has anyone else used EPGY LAW program? Did you go through OE or use their pricey tutor? How about the RWL (Reading and Writing about Literature) with LAW? What did you think? Besides EPGY, can anyone else recommend a good online language arts programs? DD enjoys the independence of learning online and loves to read & read & read but we haven't much success with structured LA curriculum. Thanks for your input!
  24. for the middle school years. Maybe include why you decided not to sign up Dc, or why you did. Also if you had a DC take an online class how well did it work for you? I am currently mulling over the idea of TOG LLC Dialectic literature or history and the Lost Tools of Writing online classes. Currently I am leaning towards no for either of these b/c of the expense. I was considering the TOG classes b/c I thought it would take some of the pressure off me, but then, I thought, part of the reason I'm homeschooling is so I can discuss literature and history with my DC, not so I can watch others do it. Still, we can have more informal discussions even if I do sign DS up for the classes. I'm really torn on this issue. Lost Tools classes I haven't investigated as much, but basically I have the same issue. I just don't know that I want to follow someone else's plan all year. I've done it before and I always end up feeling too confined by meeting the requirements of another teacher, because inevitably I end up having to push aside some of my own teaching and assignments to allow time for Ds to complete assignments for outside classes--and many times those assignments have not been worthwhile enough to warrant all the time spent on them (I'm not implying that is the case with the classes I am considering). I know I have seen others mentioned here. So what are you considering and why? Are there online classes you highly recommend? Shannon
