The ABCs of Homeschooling: E is for Electives from Starts At Eight

When my oldest was in middle school I spent time researching for the high school years. Everything from the number of credits and in what subjects she would need, to the type of planner she would use, and how I would help her to learn to manage her time.

I created a 4 Year High School Plan so that I could lay everything out to be sure she wouldn’t get to senior year and find out she had a ton of credits still left to earn.

Part of high school credits include planning for electives. What exactly are they?

“High school electives go beyond the core classes of English, math, science, and history. Electives supplement the educational years with classes that interest your child and prepare them for adult life.”
