High School Interactive Online Curriculum Available from Time4Learning, finally!

For the last eight

Homeschool Highschool Curriculum

years, Time4Learning has been a stalwart supplier to homeschool families of an online interactive curriculum, PreK through eighth grade. Their curriculum is highly interactive, animated, funny, sometimes annoying, and a very thorough way to cover huge parts of the curriculum. It’s also been strikingly affordable at $19.95 per month for the first child, less for the next.

For this 2013-14 school year, starting in mid August, Time4Learning has announced the availability of their homeschool curriculum for high school!  And I quote:

When will high school courses be available? We expect to offer our high school courses by mid August.

How much does the high school cost? High school membership will be $30/month per student and includes 4 high school courses. Additional courses may be purchased for an extra $5 per month, per course. While having one student in the high school enables you to get a discount to $14.95 for a student in the lower grades, there is no discounted rate for a second student in the high school.

What subjects will be offered at the high school level? High school will include:

  • English: English I, II, III, and IV
  • Math: Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, Trigonometry, and Pre-Calculus
  • Science: Biology, Earth/Space & Physical Science, Chemistry, and Physics
  • Social Studies: US History, World History, US Gov/Civics, and Geography
  • Electives: Health, Economics/Personal Finance

How would you compare high school to the prek-8 curriculum? They have key similarities and differences:

  • Key similarities: They are student paced, highly visual & interactive, versatile in their range of uses, standards-based, and require no contracts. The automated system grades online lessons & tracks progress. Parents act as the teacher of record and are responsible for grading offline activities.
  • Key differences: High school materials mix animation with videos, reinforced by an increased emphasis on higher order thinking and writing. Also, the prek-8th grade curriculum consists of subjects organized into grade levels, whereas high school consists of independent courses.
