    Default Homeschool Newbie with High Schooler

    Thanks for the warm welcome! I'm a homeschool newbie from New Jersey with an only child - a teenage son! Homeschool for high school! Seems I've got it backwards. Many people I've met did the homeschooling during elementary years and considered public/private high school as an option in later years. We jumped into the deep water of homeschool last year and have been swimming upstream since. Hit some whirlpools and log jams, but also enjoyed some comfortable, enjoyable days of making headway and having fun. I figure I've got to get my plan together and can't tread water too long, because there are only so many years of attending High School that are acceptable to the general public. (21-year old still in high school!? LOL!)Hoping this forum can help me see where other high schoolers have succeeded or failed; as well as survival ideas for making it through the teenage years while homeschooling. Basically seeking homeschooling support, ideas for subjects/curricula to try (or not), out-of-the-box learning/teaching suggestions, and online friendship. Not looking for anyone to throw me a life saver per se, but the school year hasn't begun yet. (Also glad to have found a secular site.)

    Welcome TreeYoda. Read through the sub forums, Homeschooling Middle/High School and College Prep. The threads on there may answer some of your questions. If not, ask away. There are a few of us who have homeschooled through the high school years!

    Almost 2 years later... Signed up for things and in the daily rush, haven't been able to check this site out. We've got 2 years of HS left and seems like so much to do! I'm still not quite sure how you all work/connect with each other. I'm looking to see if anyone would be interested in joining us for a biology class this fall. I'd be teaching (solid background) using Miller and Levine's Biology textbooks. Looking for 1 or 2 more interested in joining us. I'm located on Mercer/Burlington county border
