Homeschooling High School: Complicated Answers Take Time

College Planning


Some questions are easy to answer.
When is the PSAT?
How do I find a College Fair?
Should my freshman take Physics before Biology?


But other questions are very big, and very complicated.  Sandi asked a big and complicated question on my blog the other day.

Hi Lee. I have 5 kids, 3 remain to be homeschooled. All high school age. My 17 yo has had some issues with seizures since Spring. As a result he has fallen behind somewhat in his work. He will be 18 in Oct and should graduate in June of 2012. How do I catch him up this year? He has fallen behind in math and Eng comp. He has so many credits in all the other subjects. Should I just focus on these 2 subjects this coming year? Also, he wants to go to art school. He has been taking art lessons at a studio who will also help him with a portfolio. He just loves it. Any suggestions you have i would appreciate. ~ Sandi

I would LOVE to help, but each issue is not a simple yes/no question or quick fact.  Instead, each of these issues is complicated.  Here is what I was able to give Sandi.

Dear Sandi,

I have quite a few Gold Care Club members that just need support for handling homeschool while facing unusual issues just like this.   These are complicated issues that can't be answered by a quick email, I'm afraid.  Briefly, here are some options to consider:


Complete high school in 5 years;
Take one more year but only count the final 4 years for high school;
Focus on math and English, but don't double up on those subjects;


Evaluate to see if he is truly behind in those areas, or if you just *think* he is behind;
Find an art school by going to a college fair as a first contact;
Learn about junior year and senior year tasks.
If you find that you need more support, you can get more information about the Gold Care Club here: http://www.thehomescholar.com/gold-care.php
