Homeschooling High School.


 http://www.3dcart.com/images/build-ecommerce-sites/banner_school_supplies.jpg


I currently have three kids in 7th and 8th grade.  You could say that home educating for high school is on my mind.  I am just beginning the journey, and looking into resources.  I thought I would begin posting once in awhile on what I am learning.  My goal is to make a good plan for them, help them make plans to attend college or begin working, and not stress all of us out.  I am the guidance counselor and I plan to do a great job.  

 I am trying to make a 4 year plan with high school.  The plan is not in stone, but I think it is important to plan in a four year block.  The state of Ohio has a PDF that talks about graduating in Ohio.  Remember you can always choose a different path, but I think it is good to see what others are doing. Here is a nice chart for what classes to look at if you are going to college.  Here is a nice article on 9th grade Homeschooling. 

If your child is pursuing college, I would find a college you are interested in and look at their requirements for home educators and others to enter that college.  Here are some for Ohio colleges.

Miami University.
Specifically for home educated students.

Ohio State University
This is general for Ohio State not specifically for home educated students.

University of Cincinnati
General.

Bowling Green State University
General

Ohio University
Policy for Home Educators

You want to make a transcript as you go.   You will want to save the names of books you used, resources, and what your child learned.  Oklahoma Homeschoolers has some sample transcripts and downloads, and so does Donna Young. 

Lee Binz has a web site about home school high school called HomeScholarJeannette Web also has a web site called Aiming Higher Consultants.  She has some free items and some packages you can buy.

 I hope that gets you started.
