  1. After recently moving away from Texas (after child completed 8th grade in Texas public school), we are considering enrolling our child for 9th grade in either TTU K-12 (Texas Tech) or University of Texas High School diploma program (full time online high school culminating in public high school diploma --- available to out-of-state students if you pay tuition). Do any of you have experience with either of these schools? Or have heard about others' experiences with them? In particular, I am interested in hearing about how content is delivered and student learning is assessed (are there videos? does teacher actually grade very many assignments and give feedback?), how responsive the teachers were to emails/messages/questions (and do teachers have drop in office hours that are live virtual interactions, such as zoom meetings?), and how much interaction there is between students and teachers (and students and their peers/other students - are there student clubs and student message boards/group chats?). I am concerned that the courses will consist nearly entirely of a lot of reading, ungraded assignments where you check your own work against an answer key that is provided, and auto-graded quizzes and exams and that teachers will be less than helpful when messaged. We like that you can end up with a Texas public high school diploma (feel that may give some level of credibility that can help with both college admissions/merit scholarships and in case we decide to transition into brick and mortar local public school in our new state later) and that they follow TEKS standards (our kids went to Texas public schools until recently...so we are familiar with these state curriculum standards and thus it gives us some assurance as to quality of learning outcomes). Based on the demo classes I saw on University of Texas High School website, the lesson modules appear to have a lot of text directly in Canvas (Learning Management System) that you read, a bunch of assignments where you are supposed to write out your answers and then check your own answers against an answer key that is provided, and some check you understanding multiple choice quizzes (that you must complete satisfactorily to move on to next material, but which don't appear to count for a grade). There are also exams, but I can't see those (and I assume they will be either all or mostly multiple choice). I am guessing there would also be the occasional paper or project that would be graded by the teacher. But still, the demo classes give the impression that your daily routine would be a ton of reading (textbook type information), writing out answers to questions and comparing your answers to the answer key (until you get tired of this and just start skipping to looking at the answer key and deciding "yeah, this looks easy...I knew all this"), and taking multiple choice quizzes. That seems like quite the monotonous grind without any real interaction with teachers or any video lectures. TTU K-12 (Texas Tech) does not have demo classes on their website, but I did find some short YouTube clips where they give a very brief overview of their classes and they appear to have more variety in their lesson modules (some brief videos, but still not true lecture videos featuring the teacher; discussion boards; etc.) and did not give the impression there was a lot of the "write your answers and then check your own answers against an answer key" kinds of "assignments." Alternatively, do you know of accredited (not religious) online schools (that issue high school diploma) with live virtual lessons that cost no more than $5,000 per year? We are looking for an online high school with a diploma program (not interested in piecing together classes from different schools). We considered Williamsburg Academy (because it is affordable, accredited, and does have live lessons), but their courses don't align with the local public school curriculum (requires a bunch of leadership classes, doesn't offer biology in 9th grade, doesn't offer world history until 12th grade, math classes mix algebra and geometry together so they don't line up neatly with where my kid is at in math, etc.) and they don't offer AP classes or enough electives that interest my kid. We are hoping that public health conditions will allow a transition to local brick and mortar public school in 10th or 11th grade (high risk household). So, we need an accredited online high school that has a traditional curriculum that lines up with the local public high school curriculum (e.g., biology and world history in 9th grade). TTU K-12 (Texas Tech) and University of Texas High School look like their curriculum lines up with the local public high school curriculum in our new state, but I am just concerned that those courses are going to feel like they are on auto-pilot with nobody really teaching them (no real instructor presence) and may feel like a crushing workload of monotonous reading and multiple choice quizzes.

  5. Is there a list somewhere of online high school programs? Not just classes here and there, a whole online year of study program. Actually, I am specifically looking for asynchronous ones. My ds is doing MFW this year for 9th and is doing OK, but not great. I gave him a practice ACT test and, well, let's just say it was B.A.D. His highest score was in science, his least favorite subject. Granted, he is a terrible test taker, and we have done the tests over without time, and he did better. I think he needs to understand that he is doing school to learn, not to get it done. He is a very young freshman with no future plans, yet (except that he won't be in science; of this, he is sure) I am considering giving this next year to an online program, to see if that helps his motivation. Any ideas? Accreditation doesn't matter, as this year is already done and so it would only be for a max of 3 years. Thanks, K
  6. Student enrolled multi-schools I am so pleased to have stumbled upon this group and now this specific forum, searching for homeschooling support resources. I posted earlier to the wrong forum and now I found the group that matches my situation. was wondering if any one else has been or is in a similar situation of enrolling your child in multiple schools or supplementing day school with home instruction. I would love to hear about other family's experiences, tips and traps, time-management strategies and working with a teenager's ADHD. My story. This is my first year homeschooling while my 10th grader is also enrolled full-time in a regular CCC day school. She is also enrolled for a 1/2 unit Driver's Ed @ online, public school; and I am HSing her for credit recovery (Algebra 1 and 9th grade English). For this credit recovery homeschooling curriculum, we use (as directed): SAXON Algebra and G4W (Grammar for Writing - Blue (9th gr)) with EWCO (Everyday Words of Classical Origin) for spelling and vocabulary supplementing with the day school's assigned Literature readings I coached her for the first time this summer with HSing for credit recovery in Religion using the same series as her high school. I say coach but it was generally self-directed. I set the schedule and graded the quizzes. This is my third time using multi-school enrollment. She supplemented her middle years with online Math instruction (gr 4-6). It made a tremendous difference with catching her up. The last two years, I supplemented her math instruction using IXL.com for online skill drills by micro sub-topics and grade. However, she developed extreme text anxiety for many of her classes because of the overwhelming amount of homework required and a lack effective instruction (pacing, scaffolding, no projects) that she had become accustomed to in public school. I wanted her to have a faith-based high-school education in a smaller setting than our community's three 2,000 student warehouses ... oops I mean high school. This is how it came about that my daughter is thrice enrolled. I am dreading Algebra simply because now I will have to teach her instead of the online course doing most of the work. __________________ Robin Daughter, ADHD; "B/C" student; Gr 10 Multi-Schooled: FT(CCC hschl) ; PT(HSing); PT(online @MU hschl) http://RrcHubbard.org
  7. Hi, all! I have a high-school aged son who had to drop out of 9th grade because of severe migraines. They continue, and are unpredictable; we never know from day to day whether he'll be functional or will be in his room in pain. He is now 18 years old. We had him being taught by a tutor, but he missed so many classes that this became unaffordable. Now I'm investigating online classes; the important thing is that they have to be self-paced, because he's not going to be able to keep up with a time-based (one assignment per week) class. Does anybody have high-school level online self-paced courses to recommend? He's a very bright kid who's been out of school for four years, and I'm at my wit's end. Apart from all the fears about his never being able to live independently, I need to make sure that he has the skills so that if the migraines let up, he can move on with his life. PLEASE no migraine advice; trust me, we have seen specialist after specialist after specialist, and we've tried everything that is appropriate to his case.
