Hi. total newbie here! My son is a rising 9th grader, and we've never homeschooled. I could use some advice about curricula and virtual schools. I work p/t and due to my own ADD and other issues, I don't want to spend the next few years re-inventing the wheel. Son and I are both a little nervous about this.
We want something secular, with a little structure, but not hyper structure. But unschooling is too relaxed for us. I don't want to make up and teach the lessons -- I prefer either an online school with good science and good math and a relaxed pace, or a curriculum that doesn't have woo, b/c we are secular, science-engineering types.
Inquiry and project-based learning would be awesome, too. We hate excessive worksheets. We can get that in traditional school.
I was considering Oak Meadow for the pace / schedule, but several parents told me that their science-loving kids didn't like it. And I'm a little worried about Waldorf woo.
So, hit me with some great ideas!
