We've had many people asking us, "So, is she going to high school?" Our enthusiastic answer has been, "YES! At home!" While this is a point where many parents do choose to hang up the homeschool hat and send their children to private or public school, we are excited about continuing our homeschooling journey. It is amazing to watch our daughter's thoughts and skills unfold like a flower opening to the morning sun, and in this pivotal season, we are being careful to choose, and to help her choose, the academic input that will help guide her and prepare her for adulthood.
That said, high school feels BIGGER, doesn't it? Credits, transcripts, dual enrollment, CLEP, AP classes and testing, SAT, ACT, CLT, future plans - all of these can come together to make the most steadfast homeschool parent ask the big question, "AM I DOING THIS RIGHT?"
But like all of homeschool, and all of life, God is with us and provides us with the grace we need for the next step - and right now, that is ninth grade and choosing curriculum. Join me as I share what our ninth grader will be doing.
