Dd's mostly at the CC now, and hoping to get her AA in Graphic Design by the time she's done, so there's some stuff that's not on a 'normal' hs transcript...  she's also thinking of getting her 4-year degree in Business, so she's getting a taste of some of those courses to see how she likes them.


Calculus probably with a MOOC from Ohio State someone here shared, and hopefully with CLEP

DO Physics

English 102 @ CC

Psychology @ CC (fall)

Macro Economics @ CC (spring)

Computer Applications (Excel, really - prereq for FA) @ CC (fall)

Financial Accounting @ CC (spring)


Then Graphic Design I, Typography, Intro to Web Design, and Color & Design (2 fall, 2 spring) @ CC

Apologia Physics

Not sure about history - maybe a mix of Great Courses and library books

For sure, my 11th grader this fall is doing 2 dual enrollment classes (Composition and American Film) at a CC.  He will also be doing math.   He just finished pre-calc.  I may try him CLEP up to Calc level at the CC.  So we may spend some time reviewing this fall for that.  Or we may move on.  He is going to do the ACT again next spring and is not graduating early (most DE kids here do not), so there are some advantages to waiting until next year to move to calc.  He has taken a very circuitous route in math.  Other than that, he'll be doing lit (1 classic a month) and test prep.  And music.  He takes piano, voice, guitar and participates in a 3 hour a week musical theater/opera group so I have no problem giving him a credit in music every year.  He also may go on in music in college.  He started talking about that recently. 


Other than that, I'm not sure.  He'll do 2 other spring classes through DE but can't decide before we see the schedule.  Hopefully 1 hands on science.   He does a bunch of theater and wants to stay open to auditioning for stuff.  He might drop DE in the spring for the right theater/music opportunity for that matter.


ETA - oops, I forgot, he will also be doing an online Spanish class

We had a plan for 11th grade, but I scrapped it when a job change required moving to a new city. Ds lost some of his extra-curriculars (concert band, steel drum band, choir). But he gained the opportunity to dual enroll at the local university, and the state awarded him 12 free credit hours of tuition. So we need a new plan before college registration on the 31st.
