I'd suggest finding a local homeschool coop. Even pretty rural areas generally have a support group of some sort and that will be a great source of info and support for both of you. Joining your state HS organization can also be really helpful. Ours sends you lots of information about FAQ's and such when you join.

Do you know your state laws? He probably doesn't need to "keep up" with the local high school in order to graduate with them. He can graduate from homeschool as long as he meets your requirements.

I'd suggest heading to your library and looking for HS books, particularly ones about HSing teens and preparing for college if he intends to go. Also figure out how you want to HS him -- do you want to follow a traditional schedule with textbooks and assignments, do you want to join a program where he can do his work via the computer (I think some inexpensive ones do upper grades), do you want to take more of an unschooling approach?

Whatever you do, the biggest thing will probably be to keep transcripts. This isn't as hard as it sounds and you can google "homeschool high school transcripts" for ideas on how to keep them and to find free forms and suggestions. You can simply log them for the semester like... Geography-- 30 hours, Languages-- completed "You can Learn Spanish" CD, etc.

It may help to find a board or email list for HSing teens. You can get a feel for how others do it and that should help show that it is not as overwhelming as it seems. :) Good luck!
