What curriculum are you all using and is accreditation something that you are concerned about?  Edit: Thank you, ladies for all your replies!

I use an eclectic mix of curricula. I am not seriously concerned about accreditation, although I can see the appeal, and may indeed go with accredited next year for my middle son (and very likely will for my eldest in a couple years when she hits high school age).

I am a Home Schooling, Vaccinating, Non spanking, Nightmare Cuddling, Dessert Giving, Bedtime Kissing, Book Reading, Stay at Home Mom. I believe in the benefit of organized after school activities and nosy, involved parents. I believe in spoiling my children. I believe that I have seen the village and I do not want it anywhere near my children. Now for the controversial stuff:  we're Catholic, we're conservative, and we own guns (now there's no need to ask, lol).             Aimee

Some curricula is accredited - Seton Home Study, Kolbe Academy, Our Lady of Victory (all Catholic, but just an example). It isn't a matter of your state - it has to do with the vendor.

Quoting Chasing3:

my state doesn't have any sort of accreditation for homeschoolers. 

I use a mix of curricula from large and small publishers - all of which had been or is currently used in public, private and religious schools. And lots of free stuff on-line.

Accreditation was important to us, so we chose a curriculum based on that.
