has anyone done this? how is it? I am yanking my three kids out of school next year. I can't stand this school system.

I love being married.  It's so great to find that one special person you want to annoy for the rest of your life.  ~Rita Rudner

Are you sure it was connections academy that cost money it cost us nothing and I've looked it up for four different states we may be in next year and had nothing about costing anything


Quoting gypsy_rose:

I looked at the connections academy but we can't aford 15k a year and then 25k a year when they are all going to school.


Quoting StrictMomof2:

 I tried K12, but had many technical issues with it. I also didn't have any interaction with his teachers at all. (It could have been our local K12 program that is an issue because many great reviews have come through for it in Northern states.) We use Connections Academy, and we LOVE it. Our four year old is going to Kindergarden this year to gain the basics, but after that we'll be home schooling him as well. We plan to do the same with our daughter.


Home schooling our eight year old has been the best thing we ever did for him. He's excelling and loves it. There are MANY headaches that come with it and there are days and sometimes weeks on end that I wonder why in the world I decided to do this. However, then there are those wonderful moments when I get to watch their eyes twinkle and see their delight when they learn a new concept and know that I helped them get to that point. Plus we have the ability to be with our kids all the time and know WE are the one's totally raising them. (My husband works from home and goes to college online.)

I think using the K12 program is a great transition from public school to homeschooling. It isn't for everyone, but I know a few people who enjoy using it.
