    Default Weekly Poll: Do you plan to homeschool through high school?

    I've already graduated one daughter and plan to homeschool the rest of my children until they graduate.

    A retroactive yes for me. Actually, I pick up ds tomorrow at Purdue and dd on Tuesday at Iowa.

    Homeschooled two kids for 11 years, now trying to pay it forward

    Daughter -- a University of Iowa graduate: BA in English with Creative Writing, BA in Journalism, and a minor in Gender, Women & Sexuality Studies

    Son -- a Purdue University senior majoring in Computer Science, minoring in math, geology, anthropology, and history

    Yes. DD has no desire to return to public school, so we're in it for the long haul.

    Who knows?!?

    I can't see DS in any classroom, but of course that could change as he gets older.

    I most certainly always have no question about that no matter what it takes even if I have to tentschool, carschool, or homeless-shelter-school.

    dd28's and my relationship got so bad in adolescence that I had to turn her education over to Wes Beach Beach High School hope he could take her down a peg and inform her that Algebra was not something her mother created singlehandedly for the sole purpose of making life miserable.

    It didn't work out the way I expected AT ALL; she graduated from high school at fifteen and moved across the continent to live with her grandmother and go to Community College there.

    ds25 wanted to go into the military or law enforcement. Things are better for homeschoolers who want to take that path now and I told him I was looking into what we would have to do but homeschooling meant more to me than it did to him.

    ds9 wants to homeschool through high school and I am absolutely 100% up for it, but if he changes his mind I am not going to bawl for a week, consider myself a failure, or refuse to mention that I ever homeschooled my kids to normies.

    Currently I have one graduating (from our homeschool) this November and a sophomore in (our home) high school, the rest are middle school on down. We have been independent homeschoolers all along, it is our way of life, I cannot imagine anyone going to school! That being said, I don't have a crystal ball, who knows what may come our way. We have always treated homeschooling as doing what is best for what our kids need to learn and live life. If attending high school becomes what is best for any of our kids, then it is an option. I honestly cannot imagine the scenario where that would happen!

    DS is sure he wants to homeschool all the way through, so that is the plan. DD wavers a bit on what she wants to do. She will finish elementary at home. The middle school is rough in our are so she would need to get into a charter to go back then. We'd be fine with the local highschool if she wanted to go. Obviously, I'd prefer her to stay home, but I'm not going to make her.

    Yes! My kids have always been homeschooled and it boggles their minds when they see their friends decided to go to public school for high school. My oldest is finishing his junior year and I'm freaking out about how to do the transcript - use mine or stay with the charter school and make theirs work (please see my post under college prep if you have any advice), and my younger son will be a freshman next year - he already knows he wants to score movies - compose music for tv and film and so he's mostly studying music and film. He has no interest in attending a real high school. He's already got his eye on community college classes in music and film.
