Homeschooling high school is the major theme of mine. Upon starting this journey with our first child in 2013 I found how narrow the field of resources and information become for homeschooling high school. For that reason I try to share everything I come across. This time I am compiling a list of FREE Homeschool High School Resources.
As the years come and go I find more and more resources that I can use for the high school years. I am sure there are many I have yet to find, and as I find new ones I will continue to add them here.
FREE Homeschool High School Resources
