 Take a deep breath...let it out slowly....again, okay check with your state laws on homeschooling. How many credits does your daughter need to meet the graduation requirements? The reason I am asking is because she may have enough towards Math, English etc. Then all she would need is the elective credits.

   If you want a Christian based curriculum Christian Liberty Academy has an excellent program...it is challenging and relatively inexpensive. Christian Liberty Press also has bundled curriculum that is inexpensive too. There is also Sonlight that is literature based, but that can get expensive. 

When I homeschooled my now 23 yr. old we just pieced together a curriculum based on her career goals, she didn't want to attend college at that time.

I agree with Sheri! Breathe!! I HS'ed for my 11 & 12 grades. It was awesome! I learned to love learning (definitely NOT something taught in ps). I just researched what I needed for my SAT and college enterance and started my curriculum from there.

I also highly recommend www.khanacademy.org it has science, math, economics, etc. have her read the classics and start a reading journal. Treat reading like belonging to a book club, in fact maybe you can find one through your local library? I also suggest having her read A People's History of the United States by Howard Zinn it is an awesome history book that reads like a novel.

 What are you looking for? A planned curriculum or are you looking for something you can use from the internet?  Here are some links you might want to try while you are deciding what it is you want to do.

 I hope these are helpful to you. I do this for my own kids. I have 7 at various stages/grades and a graduate this past school year.
