    it appears that Compass is finally putting out high school courses. Will that be available here? Hopefully so

    thanks

    Time4Learning continues to look at various options for a high school program. It could be a long-term project.

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

    cyberbryan,
    Can you tell me where you saw the information that made you think they're going to make these available? I'd love to learn more. Thanks! Adele

    Adele, I found it here...

    and here...

    Sounds very exciting. Let's all hope this is available to us thru T4L in the not too distant future. I have a couple of years before I have to worry about finding a high school curriculum, but this would certainly relieve all the worries I have in this area.

    that would be great, we have graduated 2 from high school and had a hard time with finding some outside help for the high school classes, especially geometry, our weakest subject. But those 2 were fine with attending public school for 2 classes a day. My youngest son is not willing to go back to ps at all so we have to find a way when it's time to do a full geometry class. Hope T4L will be up and running with High school by then (crossing fingers)

    I agree, it would be wonderful if T4L would add the high school program when it becomes available.
    I have a 15 yr. old who also will be doing geometry next year. We are thinking about using Teaching Textbooks. I have heard lots of good things about it. the draw back is that it is expensive.
    Any ideas for a foreign language? Rosetta Stone is out of our price range.

    We used the public school system for Spanish. There are language DVDs and Cds out there. Check with your Library or online auctions for some. My daughter (2nd grade) is doing Spanish using a set of cartoon dvds and cds and is learning some basics pretty well that way. We picked them up for under $30.00 at an online auction.

    Make sure to check your local library. Our library offers the online Rosetta Stone courses for FREE to all library card holders. We can even access it from home, not just the library.

    It's my understanding that Rosetta Stone has discontinued the library access. Which is a real shame in my opinion. Bummer..

    Well darn it - I just went and checked on my library site and you are right. It says vendor cancelled on 2/28/08. That's a shame.
