  • You may try asking this same question on some of the Christian homeschooling groups here on CM.

  • I'm using Abeka for my 7th grader, and next year we'll again use Abeka but we'll go with the internet feed or DVD program.

  • I was going to suggest Abeka as well. My ds is in a private Christian school where they use the Abeka curriculum as well as Bob Jones for Language Arts. You can use them both for homeschooling as well.

  • My friends use Abeka for their middle school age children but a lot of the Christian schools here use Bob Jones. They are both available for homeschoolers. Sorry I can't be more help, mine are only in 4th, 3rd, and pre-school this year. Good luck!

  • This is my first year but Connections academy is good and in most cases it at no charge. I hope you do well, I think we are making great decisions.

  • Teaching Textbooks.com has great math curriculum that teaches itself. I am not good at math so I love this curriculum. Sonlight.com offers great curriculum that focuses on reading lots of historicial fiction as well as non-fiction books with lots of writing to ensure your child is learning. I homeschool Pre-K, 1st, 4th, 7th, and 9th. I just finshed with my oldest and he is off to college this fall. Enjoy your year homeschooling.
