When our oldest child was in 8th grade, we (both parents & student) had a big decision to make. She was homeschooled for elementary school, and went to a private school for junior high, but what were we going to do for high school? The closest private high school was 30 minutes away. We were concerned with the quality of education she would receive at the local public school. Would it adequately prepare her for college? Finally, we were concerned if homeschooling high school was the right answer. Luckily, our younger two joined a wonderful academic homeschool co-op that year, and we saw high school students not only thriving, but being accepted to top collegiate programs. We were convinced that we could successfully homeschool high school.
