Hi Brenda and everyone. I started HS Les when she was in middle school. The first year we went with Christian Liberty Accademy this was not a great thing for us. They took care of setting up the curriculum and grading the test and keeping the records. However it was like doing school at home. The next year we went to doing what worked for us. I might have paid more than I should have at time but she loved it. Les helped to choose what she wanted to study. We did start doing ACT and SAT prep in middle school. All those people who thought I was going to mess up her life homeschooling her as a single parent had to admit things turned out great. Les was offered a $15,000 to one college and $12,000 to another. She is now in her first year and loving it. How we did HS and me working fulltime was by having the homeschool stuff orginizeed. The rest of the house is a different story. I used a lesson plan book and laid out her work for the year. She would look at it and know what work she had to do that day. There was no TV or computer for play if her school work was not done. As soon as she had finished she was free to do what she wanted. Her school work only took a few hours and then she was free to draw, write, play music... We talked several times before she graduated from high school if she ever wanted to go back to public school fulltime (she took one class a day in orchestra) She use to say that one class a day is enough to know who was wearing the right clothes, who was doing who...and that she did not want to be part of it. The road of Hs as a single partent is not easy, many will question what you are doing but you need to do what is best for your child. Get others to hep when you are not sure about a topic most people love to share what they know. Have fun on this road of Hs Cheryl
