The following article will help you.  Read the first part about complying with your State Laws ( a very important first step), and understanding your child's learning style.  Then scroll down to the bottom where it gives several links concerning homeschooling the high school student.

Dual Enrollment is a great opportunity for homeschoolers.  It allows your 15 year old to take college courses for free until they turn 18,  and be home schooled too.

Hi!.  :)  

What are you wanting to do? Do you want to buy a whole curricullum or do you want to buy one subject at a time? Or are you looking to write your own?  

Aside from that, you should relax, take a deep breath  and slowly let it go. Then, just realize that you are about to embark on a the biggest adventure of a lifetime. You will find that both you and your 15 year old will learn together and that it will be one of the most awesome experiences you will have with your 15 year old.  

Are you taking your teen out of public school? If so, you will want to de-school for awhile. Learn to get used to being in a different setting for school and learn that learning happens in a much different way thatn how it happened in public school.
