Homeschool Curriculum

So my mom and I have been discussing the possibility of homeschooling because the public school I'm now attending has a very poor curriculum and I don't feel like it's preparing me for college at all. We're trying to put together a good curriculum for me first before we withdraw me from school [I'm a 16 year old honors sophomore], but don't really know how to go about doing it.

Does any one have any suggestions for textbooks and curriculum or know any place where we can buy them?

Check your state's Education department curriculum site. You should also be able to get textbooks FOR FREE from your local school district. If you want to have a good program without spending much, this is the way to go.

When my daughter was 1/4 of the way through 10th grade in public school, we chose to begin to home school. We joined a college prep home schooling group in our area, based about 30 miles from our home. She did her school work year round from then on and being part of a group really helped. Some of the classes were done on the computer with software we purchased or borrowed. She was able to still go to some classes with the group and go on field trip with her peers in the group. Parents and students in the group were available for help and tutoring and my daughter got the opportunity to tutor and mentor younger children also. It worth looking into and I hope your area has something similar to offer.

What state are you in, and how do I find this type of group?

Delaware and I learned of the group through some people at the church we were attending at the time. Possibly look it up on the internet for home schooling groups in your area. Good luck!
