Okay so I have looked into the free public school for homeschooling on my state and am not really in love with the fact that I am still under a public school calender. Part of what appealed to me about home school as the fact that I could go at his pace as long as it was between Sept. 1- Aug 31. according to my states laws. (If I even got that right) I looked at some other programs but they seemed to be of the same mind frame. Kids log in and have a time restraint. How does it work to make your own curriculum and school year schedule. I want more of a year round school kind of time line. I just have no idea where to begin with making my own lesson plans but I don't want my son to be locked into a certain time line that he HAS to learn something. This is why we want out of public school... I am so lost.

I like the core knowledge series, "What Your [insert grade] Needs to Know". If you start homeschooling from the start you can follow these and your child will have an excellent education. I don't care for the virtual schools for the same reasons you don't - I am homeschooling so that I have control, not the public schools. Good luck!
