SparklyUnicorn Posted March 20, 2015 Share Posted March 20, 2015 High school. What are my options? What are the pros and cons of the various options? DS wants to study computer science or electrical engineering. I think he is capable. The local public school is NOT an option. We need affordable options for high school (and college) so money is a consideration. I admit I'm nervous about going the no high school diploma route because I don't fully understand the ramifications of that come time to apply to colleges. And I wonder how many outside courses are ideal to add to a transcript. What tests are ideal that he should study for and take? Our local CC is friendly towards homeschoolers so he could just sign up for courses, but at this point I don't have a clue how he would fare in that environment. I assume eventually that'll be fine, but at 14 I'm not so sure. We have a little time because he is 13, but some subjects he is already well into high school level. He wants to have some freedom to pursue programming projects. He's eying adding in some EDX courses from somewhere like MIT (possibly computer science). Ack...so any advice you can give me I would really appreciate it. Or if there is a wonderful book, website, or anything that would be helpful. I've been looking at various options, but I'm so torn. 6 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
