Homeschooling high school can be a challenge… but we’re almost done!
As a curriculum reviewer, we’ve found ourselves hopping around through different curriculum much more than the typical homeschool family. Last year we started using Notgrass’s American History program, but it ended up on the shelf when we were given an opportunity to review a different program. That puts Notgrass back on the list for this year!

2011 – 2012
- Teaching Textbooks Geometry
- Latin Alive!
- Apologia Biology
- Bible- A little bit of everything!
- Notgrass for American History including American Literature
- IEW for writing
- A little bit of Starting Points thrown in as well
That looks doable, doesn’t it?

Here was our basic list for her freshman year:
Nothing set in stone… because I keep going back and forth! But here is a tentative list of our curriculum choices for the fall.
- Teaching Textbooks Algebra 2 (100% definite!)
- Latina Christiana (Memoria Press) – A fairly basic introduction to Latin. Lexie has already had 3 years of Spanish thanks to our homeschool co-op… so I wanted something that wouldn’t burn her out.
- Exploring Creation with Physical Science (Apologia) – This was intended for this past year, but we never quite get around to doing Science. It’s my least favorite subject.
- The Mystery of History 3 – LOVE MOH!
- Institute for Excellence in Writing – I plan to make my own writing assignments to follow MOH 3.
- Fix-It – grammar
- Reading galore! Tons of great books on our to-be-read pile! I will be utilizing Teaching the Classics from IEW to guide our studies.
- Music & Moments with the Masters (Cornerstone) – A 5 year course in Classical music.
Whew! Is that everything? I sure hope so… my only hesitation that is that I want to use Starting Points as well. But I think our plate is pretty darn full for the year.
