  • look ay K12.... its school online...
    and before anyone says school online is not the same.. its how ALOT of adults get their college education.. I know a few people who take a good 95% of their college online & its just as hard as going to class..
    Just make sure she is ready to take responsibility of her education.. make it clear to her.. To homeschool you have to think & plan for yourself.. teachers are not going to be there to remind you what your assignments are.. and when things are due.. Kids dont realize how much they are babied in school.. (all the way to senior yr!).. Let her know if she fails or falls behind its only her fault and she will have no one "to place blame on" (like so many kids blame it on a bad teacher)...

  • One of our children left HS at 16 and finished at the Learning Center. It was really good for him.

  • Have you considered transferring her to a charter school, either an online one or a traditional brick & mortar school? These schools tend to be smaller, with smaller class sizes & more individual attention from staff. Some of them even have a specific focus, like on the arts, science or mathematics, so she might be able to tailor her education closer to her own interests. And, because many of them are also public schools, your daughter would be able to attend at no cost to you (other than the usual field trips fees, etc.).
