Our Curriculum Choices for 2014/2015

This year has been a hard year for me to plan. Especially since Geek Girl is a freshman in high school. So we had to figure out all her credits and other things that we needed to get in for the year. If we can stick to the plan this year (thank God there is room for adjustment if need be) we will finish by May 29th. Our starting day is August 18th. Geek Girl is actually getting excited about her education this year. I’m so glad since the other two don’t want to start back yet.

Anyway here is our list of curriculum choices for this year.Image courtesy of Naypong / FreeDigitalPhotos.net
