Hold onto that feeling.
Don't let the fear or insecurity creep in.
Hi Lee. I have 5 kids, 3 remain to be homeschooled. All high school age. My 17 yo has had some issues with seizures since Spring. As a result he has fallen behind somewhat in his work. He will be 18 in Oct and should graduate in June of 2012. How do I catch him up this year? He has fallen behind in math and Eng comp. He has so many credits in all the other subjects. Should I just focus on these 2 subjects this coming year? Also, he wants to go to art school. He has been taking art lessons at a studio who will also help him with a portfoliio. He just loves it. Any suggestions you have i would appreciate.
I have quite a few Gold Care Club members that just need support for handling homeschool while facing unusual issues just like this. These are complicated issues that can't be answered by a quick email, I'm afraid. If you would like to become a Gold Care Club member, we can talk together and get these things figured out. You can also search my blog for answers as well.
Briefly, here are some options to consider:
Completely high school in 5 years
Take one more year but only count the final 4 years for high school
Focus on math and English, but don't double up on those subjects
Evaluate to see if he is truly behind in those areas, or if you just *think* he is behind in those areas
Find a Art school by going to a college fair as a first contact.

I hope that helps a bit.
