My DD has been using K12, until this year and then she did connections academy and didn't do well. We went with a K12 based school second sememster and DD15 hates that it is all online. I am not bright enough to put something for highschool together but am looking at it very seriously.

She wants a cirriculum that has very little "online" work and more in notebooks binders and the cirriculum books themselves. So any wise ladies have any ideas on what can help me. I also don't have alot of money for this either, but want to do something that helps her succeed and feel better about herself.

What about something literature-based?

Have you read "The Well Trained Mind"? I know it has plans up until graduation. I think most can be done via library. Our library had the book so you probably can check it out and see if it will work or not. As I recall for the lower grades it follows K12 to some extent on what is studied, just it is not online. It all seems to be spelled out pretty well.

For math, I know it is online, but you and she may want to check out Khan Academy. It is free, and if she only ends up with one class online it might not be so bad. It goes up to college level math.

Have you looked into Malibu Cove High School? My son is enrolled with them and he loves it! They are textbook based (no online work), he has a teacher assigned to him that he can email if he has any questions about his work, they send progress reports and have a great interest free payment plan (that's the part that I loved the best! lol) My younger ones are enrolled in MCHS's elementary division (Seascape Private School). We are very happy with the programs!
