Oak Meadow might work for you. The texts for the different subjects are from various publishers, so it's not like a unit study to cover all of your subjects. But it certainly is a great place to start for good secular materials (IMO). You could pick and choose which courses you want, so if your child needs a 6th or 7th grade math book, you can purchase that level, and then the 5th grade (or whichever grade) level history, etc. I don't know how the on-line/correspondence school works, though I'm sure if that's the route you want to take they could help you. I've purchased several of their courses to use at home (along with the syllabus for the subjects) and the only problem I've come across is not having answers for sheets in the syllabus. I have found teacher's editions of the textbooks on-line and have made it work, but syllabus answers for English/Literature questions and the tests in the German syllabus would come in handy!

If you are interested in computer based learning, Odysseyware by Pathways Publishers is supposedly a secular version of Alpha Omega Publishers' Switched on Schoolhouse, though I don't have any personal experience with that program.
