OK my Homeschoolin Mama friends! I have a question.
As many of you know we started homeschooling J this year after a teacher straight from the deepest pit of Hades made contact with Momma Bear. We chose Connections Academy for him. And, minus a few hiccups, which were to be expected, we love it.
Here's the question...A will join us for homeschool after she is done with this "year" of school. She will be going into 9th grade. High School. Ok, I said the question was up there, but it's not. It's here:
Which program should I choose?
1. Connections Academy
2. ISucceed Virtual Academy
I've heard some good things about IS, but their program looks, umm, boring? Just kinda plain white, no excitement or color. Ash and I like to be visually stimulated. I'm not sure this would be the best option for her, because of that. Also it doesn't seem as easy to navigate as CA is. BUT, I have heard that they (IS) have a lot more online support and Live Lessons than does CA. So that could be a huge plus.
Then we have CA..I already know how to navigate it, because we have J in it. It's colorful, it's pretty. It's very straight forward and gives lots of help. Also has LiveLessons and a 24/7 Math help website. Big plus. But, as far as I can tell, it doesn't offer as many extra programs as IS does.
Do any of you know anything about either of these programs at the High School level?
*I'm not interested in doing any other form of Homeschooling. Although I would love to be able to say I could be accountable on my own and juggle lesson plans, etc., I can't. Correction: YES, I COULD. But I would also probably become an alcholic and go absolutely insane and require hospitalization. SO, these two are my top choices. I know there is also The Idaho Virtual Academy..but I just don't want that program, not real sure why. Just don't.
Another question...I would like to get some extra Christian material for the kids. Maybe a Bible Study type thing we could all do together. Nothing that needs to be turned in to anyone or graded, just a great study that we could do daily throughout the year..maybe ones that come with workbooks.
We'll chat soon..
