We are on the brink of it. Our two older kids have graduated from our homeschool, and now begins the on-ramp for graduating our youngest. She is currently finishing 8th grade, and today I put together a rough plan for the next four years. She has interests in art and veterinary science, so there are a few things included to help her investigate those subjects.
It doesn’t have to cost a bundle, either.
My cost is $25 a month for Power Homeschool.
My subscription to SchoolhouseTeachers.com is a benefit of working for the company (but it’s still CRAZY affordable at under $9/month for the whole family, with our current special, and includes my record keeping, our quarterly magazine, planners, SO MUCH–ask me about it!). I’ll use some videos like Mr. D’s Geometry and Drive Thru History to round out our math and history classes.
Typing Club is free (I like it…used it for Michael).
The New Answers books (1-4) are free right here.
I got a complete copy of WriteShop on Ebay for $15 I think.
We use the library and free books on Kindle for reading.
Driver’s Ed (with high school credit) is $19.95 one-time fee, when we are ready for it.
Add in paper, pencils, a few sundry supplies that I buy in bulk at Walmart’s back-to-school sales.
Homeschooling does not have to break the bank!
If you find the idea of homeschooling high school daunting, a couple favorite resources of mine are the It’s Not That Hard to Homeschool High School Facebook group, and all that Lee Binz has to offer at The HomeScholarsite (really, go look!).
Comment if I can help! And keep an eye out here for an announcement about an incredible, free online event coming up very soon!
