For the beauty of the earth, For the beauty of the skies,
For the love which from our birth Over and around us lies,
Lord of all, to thee we raise This our grateful hymn of praise.

Homeschooling High School

Not Back to School Blog Hop

(Participating in the Not Back to School Blog Hop.)

Trying not to panic. (nervous laugh)

College Prep Course of Study

We mostly use Christian Light even though we are not Mennonite so we don't agree with 100% of what they say. I've been homeschooling over 10years, though, and have yet to find any curriculum we agree with 100%. The kids have responded positively to the layout and organization of this curriculum so we'll be sticking with it. :D


English – Two sections--1st Semester--Literature; 2nd Semester--English. He'll also be taking the course offered through the PSP because I have finally accepted that I am completely incapable of teaching a subject I loathe. ;D

Math -- He seems to like this better than Saxon. We'll see how it works. I hope it gives him enough room to work out the problems in his head.

Social Science – 1 sem. Geography,--Hopefully we can count this as both the Civics & Geography requirements. 1 sem. Health -- CLE doesn't have a Health curriculum, but AOP is laid out similarly...suprise. ;)

Science – Biology --You knew I had to sneak Saxon in there somehow, right? :) We're hoping to take Fridays to focus on Science projects and experiments. He wants to start by dissecting everything. :D

Foreign Language – German

Visual & Performing Arts – 1 year required--Obviously, this shouldn't be a problem in our house. He'll be focusing on Art & Music though. I will outsource those. :)

Physical Education – We'll probably have to skip PE this year.

Electives – Typing; Computer

Golly, it looks so easy on paper. **shudder**


  1. Oh, it doesn't look so easy to me :) I may have to call on you for support when I start homeschooling my kids. But that won't be for another year.

    1. I know. To be honest, it's about as overwhelming as starting Kindergarten the first time. :)
