Does anyone know of any or recommend any that my daughter could do almost completely online next year? We are debating on going back to ps next year or continuing, but it would need to be alot of online for accountability purposes. Thanks!

Mary,

Check out Potter's school. http://www.pottersschool.org/

My daughter has worked for them for about 3 years, and of the 3 or 4 schools that she has worked for, this is the one I hear all good things about..

You could see if K12 has a virtual school/academy option in your state.  You can go their public route, purchase the curriculum yourself as an independent HS'er, or use their private (tuition) iCademy.

We've used K12 for six years, as independent HS'ers, and LOVE it.

Veritas Press Academy and Memoria Press have many online classes now.  I am not sure of how they are as my kids are too young to do them yet, but the folks are pretty smart over at both places!  Many I know have used and love Potter's school-I wish I had the time to take their literature classes myself!!!
