    Default Considering Summer Program

    I am wondering if the summer program is what I am looking for. I have a 13yo who just finished the 7th grade. He has a horrible time in the classroom setting and even though he is pretty smart he hardly passed. I am looking for a summer program similar to online schooling where he could review the 7th grade and would be responsible to doing lessons and taking tests but he doesn't need an official "credit' for it. I do not have the means to home school so I am looking for something where he can prove himself responsible enough to possibly do online schooling in the fall. Anyone have experience with the summer program and think this might be what I am looking for?

    I think Time4Learning would work well in this situation. He can log in daily (or whenever you want him to) and work on lessons by himself. T4L is available 24 hrs per day, so he can work in the daytime or at night. Whatever works best for your family. He can review the grade level he just completed or you can choose a different level (even different levels per subject).

    I agree that Time4Learning could be ideal for this purpose. Using Time4Learning during the summer would give you both an idea of what to expect with an online school. It sounds like you understand the difference between an online school and homeschooling. Time4Learning is for homeschooling; it is not an online school. Homeschooling during the summer could give you both a taste of what am online school might feel like, but an online school will not have the flexibility of the Time4Learning lessons.

    Mom of six . . . current students and homeschool graduates. Enjoying using Time4Learning since 2006!

    This is exactly our situation. I have signed up for T4L and looked through the curriculum. However, it seems like an entire year is available for the summer program and I thought I saw somewhere that there is a summer specific program (like 6 weeks long). Can you tell me where to find this one I've signed up? Or do I create it myself? The second option sounds daunting. lol

    We are also trying this for the summer to see if it's an option for fall instead of public school.
