Choosing Online Highschool




I have a soon-to-be 9th grader. Does anyone have advice about online high schools? He currently is taking three courses at WTMA, which are fabulous. I would love to continue with the curriculum throughout high school, but I am concerned that because WTMA is not accredited, nor a "proper" high school, competitive colleges will not look at him. Furthermore, as a friend asked, oh, will he have to get a GED since he will not graduate from a school?

Any advice? Thoughts? 

Thank you!

Hi, Lisa, 

Did you find the answers to your questions? 

If not, I would encourage you to check out Bauer's book, Rethinking School. 

Also, as you have a child taking WTMA classes, they might be willing to answer some questions too. 

Quick thoughts. Hope you found some answers!

My two daughters were homeschooled through 8th grade then went onto Laurel Springs Academy. I did not feel confident in my ability to teach high school, and I want outside accountability. My oldest daughter just graduated from university this spring, and she is off to a good job. She was well prepared for college work and had great independent study skills. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask.
