Thank you so much for focusing on high school, homeschool students! Your web site has been very valuable to me. I am homeschooling a son who is profoundly gifted. We are "refugees homeschoolers" - We always believed our son would be schooled in public education. However, we had to flee the public school system when his needs weren't being met. I just wanted you to know first hand your site is helping my son and many people in our homeschool group - Denver CO Common Ground Homeschoolers.I can give you a 100% thumbs up for the LiveMocha program. This is a free program to learn foreign language. Koa loves, loves, loves this program. The site is designed for adults but people of any age can utilize it. The system is ingenious. Koa is learning Spanish so he does Spanish curriculum which includes practicing his Spanish writing and speaking skills. Native Spanish speakers grade his work and give feedback. In turn, Koa reviews and grades people's work who are trying to learn English. Students receive LiveMocha points (arbitrary points of progress) for the language lessons and they receive teacher points for helping others. Isn't that a great concept? And all of this is free IF you help enough people - just a reasonable amount of teacher points nothing crazy. You could talk with Koa directly if you'd like more information but he loves it!!
Best and Blessings with your work.

WOW! I've been looking for something to do because everything we've tried so far just hasn't met our needs. Thanks!
Thank you Lee! My 13 year old son took Spanish in 6th grade from a teacher he loved! She gave us a textbook and workbooks for him to do Spanish at home this year. He knows a lot of it, but I don't know anything about Spanish so I can't help him or assess him. This program looks excellent! We're going to give it a try.
Socialization is not about a group of kids all the same age always being together. True socialization doesn't happen in a bubble and is about people of ALL ages interacting with one another. When kids are feeling alone, then getting out into the world can provide the socialization they are craving.

Parents need to keep the academic records for their teens after graduation . They may be needed for further education in 5 years.... or 10 years... or 30 years after the children have left the nest. Graduates may need a transcript for a job in the future, or some have even found they need course descriptions. Somewhere, somehow, you need to keep academic
