Anyone have any good website for homeschooling High Schoolers?

I haven't tried this one but it was listed in our local paper

Here are some of the high school websites I’ve collected:

  • http://donnayoung.org/forms/high-school.htm   This site shows you how to compute a GPA, and has forms for transcripts and diplomas.
  • http://litlovers.com/course/    Free online literature course
  • http://www.ucopenaccess.org/     Free online math, science, and history classes
  • http://www.hoagiesgifted.org/online_hs.htm    Links to bunches of great looking free online classes. The page is designed for parents of “gifted” children, but the classes are mostly high school level classes.
  • http://edsitement.neh.gov/view_lesson_plan.asp?id=594    This is a fabulous high-school level lesson plan for studying the Autobiography of Frederick Douglass. If the other lesson plans on the site are as good as this one, than I know I’ll be back here.
  • http://www.learner.org/resources/series123.html   You can watch the documentary “A Biography of America” online here. I’ve been catching episodes of this on my local PBS station during the teacher-programming time slot—it’s a great program; definitely worth adding to a U.S. History class. Search the site for other programs, too. They are expensive to buy, but you can watch most of them for free online.

This is one of my all-time favorites:

DonnaYoung.org   Printables and Resources


And for specialized courses, at a cost, there is Virtual High School.  My daughter is taking Pre-vet, Animal Behavior, and Forensics.

Sue--how much do the Virtual High School classes cost?  I can't seem to find that on their website.  Looks like a good resource!

Have I mentioned these yet?

This is a site where you can download a free graphing calculator that works on Windows XP.  It was just what we needed when my daughter's Algebra I book required the calculator for only one lesson.  (Not worth buying one for that!)


Here's a website that has a "dynamic Periodic Table"--a nice reference for a Chemistry class.  You can click on each of the elements for more information about them.


There are a bunch of free online courses here:  free-ed.net/free-ed/

Thank you for all the wonderful websites. I am thinking about high school as my son is now in 6th grade. They had some really neat things I can use with him now. Thanks again.
