Episode 39: How to Start Homeschooling High School Part 3 – Credits, Core Courses, & Electives

After you’ve researched your state homeschool law and college requirements, then it’s time to get to the nitty gritty of which courses to put into the plan and which order to schedule them in.

In this episode I give you the nuts and bolts about core courses and how they are ordered, the key thing to remember about electives, and a little bit about credits (although I discussed them extensively in a previous episode which I’ll link to below).

After this you’ll have everything you need to know to create a great plan for your teen’s four years. You will be confident and you’ll know you haven’t missed anything that belongs on the homeschool transcript. That’s a good feeling!
