    Question Do you plan to homeschool through high school?

    My plans right now are to do so, although that may change has we get closer to high school.

    How about you? Have you given it any thought?

    I have a high schooler that I would like to home school because he is having so much difficutly with his teachers. I have been reading all the post that Quiltermom has been posting and have really been intriqued. If he continues to have problems, DH and I have already discussed to remove him from public school and homeschool.

    I am just nervous about it.

    Don't worry mom23boys-- I started homeschooling mine in Gr. 7 and 9 and it worked fine. They both successfully made it into university where they are now working on degrees in Science.

    I credit God for giving us the nudge and the direction and homeschooling for giving our kids the necessary skill set to be able to do well in university.

    We redid their math from the ground up so to speak, and their ability to write was much improved. Socially they improved, and their work habits matured.

    I encourage anyone thinking of this to go for it. It can be done and it is very rewarding for all concerned.

    We have recently taken my '16' out of a Private Christian School to HS him.

    He wanted to do it and is determined to be successful at it.

    Plus... he feels like he is actually learning, which gives him a lot of self confidence.

    It was hard for him to leave the Basketball team but even that hasn't been an issue.

    He chose to continue with the Accelerated Christian Education Paces/workbooks and said he didn't need the videos that come with them.

    It wasn't my prefered curriculum, but will get him well prepared for college.

    I would love to help in anyway I can, PM me, I'll relay my IM and email....would love to listen to your concerns and answer questions.

    A note to Dozy, thanks so much for your post, I am printing it out for my mom who is a little concerned my son won't learn or get to college.

    Also, mom23boys, my son would behappy to answer you son's questions.

    Take the leap, get support and make it happen....you really wont regret it.

    Glad to be of help Melissa, anytime you need a hug or some encouragement, I'll be glad to give it. It isn't the "usual" thing even in homeschool circles to begin in high school, but we did, and none of us have ever regretted it.

    I'm usually in here checking in, reading new posts and so forth several times a week even if I don't always post.

    Thanks for all the words of encouragement. I am trying to be patient with the school he is in. If things do not work out, I will pull him out which will be hard since I work for the school district he attends. I work at the elementary age though. I do not really want to quit working, but if it comes down to him succeeding and me having a job, he will win everytime. I an get a job later.

    Dd is in 8th grade now and we sort of take it year by year, if she decides that she really wants to go back to public school then we would probably let her, but so far she is happy at home.
