Our Favorite Homeschooling Resources

Wow, I first wrote this page in ~2001. Back then we were with CompuServe. How things have changed since then.

We design our own curricula, until high school, when the child either designs his/her own, or with help from me, or we go with an online provider, or enrol in virtual academy.

But here are my go-to sources, or favorites after homeschooling for ~14 years:
