Was thinking of using it for Highschool - add math and Science?

I've heard of it, but don't have any experience with it.

I have FAR.  What did you want to know?

I though Far Above Rubies was a Proverbs study for ages 8 to 15. Is there something else called Far Above Rubies, or is this the one you're talking about?

Far Above Rubies is the name of high school curriculum manual/plan for girls.  There is an older edition that was published in 4 or 5 paperback volumes & a new edition that is in a 3-ring binder.  This is the one we are talking about.

There is also a Far Above Rubies series of leaflets for younger girls.  It's published by Advanced Training Institute.  I've seen this, but haven't used it.

The 2 curricula are completely different - they just use the same phrase from Proverbs for their names.

Thanks for all the info!  I have it ordered, we are using Saxon Math and several different science resources! 

Trying to find out what other books you need to get to go along with FAR and BITM?

 

Thanks for all of the information!

The other books will depend on which options you choose within FAR.  There are lists of suggested & recommended resources for each unit in FAR.

I would be glad to share that information via PM if you want to know about a specific unit.
