    He is not doing a science this year so I will break up the classes I have into two semesters. He only needs 22 credits to graduate so I just made a schedule for all four years already to make sure the requirements are met. I am just starting him with the grammar since he needs a refresher and will add literature and writing in as the semesters progress. I had no clue about the history so I will definitely check your suggestions out.

    US History Detective or World History Detective from CTC
    ... there are also a number of solid textbook options for high school and there are a bunch of MOOC's or Great Courses out there that you might base things around.

    I'm curious, do you have choices for literature and writing? Grammar is not usually the primary focus for high school English? Are you planning to do a science? I know those can get hard for high school, when credits really start to matter.

    We just moved across country, so I'm still sort of getting my act together right now. We just got the eval done today for last year, so, yeah; things are nuts around here.

    That being said, my homeschool kid is ready to go. We had a long discussion tonight (10 whole minutes!) about what curriculum I've been thinking about. He gave a yes to everything so what I have at this point is:

    Math:

    Right Start Arithmetic Kit (My sweet boy struggles in Math, so we are going to go over some basics for a little while in August)
    Life of Fred (Review: Ice Cream, Jelly Beans, Kidneys, Liver, Mineshaft) Then on to the 5 next books starting with Fractions. Can't wait!
    Time4Learning as a supplement only, for when he's sick of me.

    ELAR:

    I can't believe I'm typing this, but; Moving Beyond the Page. I'm biting the bullet and buying this massive curriculum. He's very excited and wants to do it, I'm excited that all of the components of ELAR are covered!

    SS:
    No clue.

    Science:
    No clue.

    Art:
    Required in the state of Texas, apparently. No clue. It needs to be fun, cause he's not a fan.

    Music:
    He's hopefully going to be able to take chorus at the local middle school. I'm thrilled.
