Homeschooling High School really isn’t that hard! Learn how you too can easily homeschool high school

Does thinking about homeschooling high school make you want to freak out a bit? Are you feeling like there’s NO.WAY. you’ll be able to “get it right”?

Do you feel overwhelmed by all of the information and methods and curricula and opinions and and and???

And no one wants to make the “wrong choices” for their child’s education–especially for high school because you’ve told that if you mess up, you could ruin their entire future.

(BTW: You can’t screw up their whole life by picking the “wrong” English class or whatever; that’s complete malarkey).

Because there’s NO Wrong or Right way! Every child is different; every family is different; and every homeschool is different. 🥰

That’s why I want to share these posts about homeschooling high school with you, to give you the confidence to homeschool your teen, because you CAN do it! It really isn’t as hard as everyone makes it sound!

Secondary Level Homeschooling High School Curriculum Resources

Does it seem like it’s really hard to find engaging (and budget-friendly) unit studies that have enough higher-level content to “count as school” for 7th grade and up? I wanted my older kids to be able to study the same topics as the younger ones but couldn’t find anything that would challenge my high schooler. That’s why I have three different levels of lessons for all of my unit studies.
