Can I Homeschool High School Using Online College Courses?

Is it reasonable to think I can completely school my high schooler doing online college courses for dual credit?  I figure that way all his work is documented.  We have always used Abeka, he will be a freshman in the fall and he tests very well each year on the CAT despite the fact that he spends half of the school year traveling and working with his truck driver dad. (I need to find the most efficient way to do high school as we are schooling 5/6 children, the 6th having special needs.)

Hi Dorie,

It's certainly possible to homeschool high school with online college courses.  The only problem with that is making sure that your child is ready for COLLEGE courses.  Many times homeschoolers are so well educated at home, they are capable of homeschooling college courses toward the end of high school.  That gives you a great advantage, by the way, because college will cost less in the long run!

I have a webpage devoted to the concept of "homeschooling college."

Read it through, and see if it's a good fit for you.  My own children did have a year of college that they completed at home.  I know many people are successful with CollegePlus.  Here is the link CollegePlus.

So I guess the answer is YES!  It's possible!  But it's not right for everyone, and it depends a lot on your student.
