Ann-Notated: Homeschool High School with Online Resources

In my post earlier this week claiming that homeschooling high school is not that hard, one of the reasons I gave for that contention was that there are many more resources now than there ever were before.  Well, today on Ann-Notated I am going to back up that claim.  Today I am listing online resources to use for homeschooling high school.  And let me tell you, this is by no means an exhaustive list.  I could have gone on a lot longer.  Hopefully this will suffice as enough for anyone to get started believing that they really can do this homeschool high school thing. 🙂

This week's list is online resources you can use to homeschool high school. Specific courses, full curriculum, and a bunch of other links, too!

  • Just wanted to add a “newer” company that has ONLINE courses for middle and high school students. http://www.classesbybeth.com
    Classes By Beth provides online courses in a variety of subject areas, from a Biblical Worldview, in real time with live teachers and classmates. There are summer intensive workshops for Essay Styles, Computer Applications, and Christian Basic Training. These courses are 8 weeks in June/July 2015.

    Courses for 2015-16 range from literature, writing, science, math, history, foreign language and electives such as nutrition (most courses for middle/high school and a few for 5th grade and above).

    Feel your child is not ready to handle online instruction? There’s a CBB@Home option for writing and literature courses.

    If you’d like more specifics about how CBB differs from other online courses, please read this blog post: http://www.classesbybeth.com/blog/how-cbb-differs-from-other-online-classes/

    I’ve used CBB for four years and think more people will love them too after they research and learn what they have to offer!

  • I’m so glad I came upon this article on Pinterest! It’s just the kind of information we were looking for with the upcoming school year. Thank you very much.
