Free Homeschool Resources for High School

 

Free Resources for Homeschooling High School

**This is a little bit of a different post for me! But, in the fall I will have a FRESHMAN in high school. Yes, take a moment and freak out with me. So, after a little bit of freaking out, I’ve been doing lots of research and talking to friends who are a little bit ahead of me in this journey of homeschooling high school. I’m collecting resources and thought I should share those with you!**

I have this friend that I dearly love. She encourages me in my faith as well as in my parenting and homeschooling. I tell her that her methods are “out of the box” and she asks me, “WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?” LOL!

So, what do I mean by out-of-the-box homeschooling?

No textbooks. Or mostly no textbooks. ūüôā Or basing a class off of non-textbook related resources. Textbooks may be used, but as one of many tools used to help formulate the class.

For the most part, this friend of mine uses {mostly} FREE resources she finds on line or in her co-op. I have to tell you, she does a LOT of research for her homeschool family. She has 5 children, 2 of which are high schoolers. And you know what? I am pretty sure her kids are getting a better education than my own children. So, in a nutshell, she rocks.

I have collected so many of her resources saved and collected that I thought I should just do a blog post CRAMMED full of GOOD STUFF! I will divide up the resources by subjects.

Recommended: My friend recommends that you find textbooks (even college!) and make your syllabus based on the TABLE OF CONTENTS. Find free things (videos, PDFs, library books, activities) based on these topics and you can explore these things without even using the textbook as a main source for your class. Many of the links below came as a result of a topic found in the table of contents and looking for videos or sources online to use to teach that topic.

**If you have any resources you would like to be added to this list, please leave a comment with the link! Thank you!**

Free High School Homeschool Resources

Author: Candace Crabtree

I'm just a messed up mama in need of God's fresh new mercies daily. My husband and I live in beautiful East Tennessee with our 3 children. God has taken me on a journey through the valley of depression and is teaching me to pray the Scriptures as a result. I hope and pray that you will be encouraged whenever you stop by this little place on the web.

  1. Thank you so very much for compiling these great links. These are going to help out our homeschool so much! I too will be pinning this! Please keep this page active I will be referring to it quite often : ) Much gratitude and appreciation!

  2. Thank you so much! I will also have a freshman in the fall! Weren’t we just snuggling on the couch reading FIAR books? Sigh…I look forward to more posts like this!

  3. Love the list, this is how we homeschool also. This year my high schoolers are using Tom Richey’s website for American History http://www.tomrichey.net/ He presents history in a way they remember, without being overly flashy, raunchy or in your face loud.

  4. Easy Peasy allinonehighschool.com
