Websites or resources for information about home school curriculum?

I'm Tracey, and am trying to learn more about alternatives to public schooling for my 17 mo. old DD.


I am looking for info on the types of curriculum offered, which ones are accredited, and the comparisons among them all.

Thanks in advance!

I would see when the next homeschooling convention is going to be near you. You get to see all the curriculum up close. 8)

Hi Tracey,

As for accreditation, 42 states offer "Dual Enrollment" which means a homeschooler can attend college for free until they turn 18.  Many homeschoolers that take advantage of this program, have a two year degree or more under their belts by age 18.  No problem with collage entrance with this method

It use to be hard for home educated children to enter college.  But that has now changed because colleges have discovered that home educated kids outperform their public schooled counterparts. But it is important to keep records, and transcripts.

The following article gives information about Dual Enrollment, various state laws, methods and curriculum used by home educators (I prefer the curriculum created by home educators...it is better), how to find home school groups near you, grade level requirements,  courses for the college bound students, scholarships, and more:

 To actually see any comparisons, you would have to do the research yourself.  Also, if you check out home schooling statistics, you should come up with some comparisons on ps and hs.  I would also  check out what romacox is suggesting.  :)

Also there might be new options by the time your DD gets to be school age!
