I am looking to home school my Daughter while on the surf expedition, any suggestions on how to pull this off would be greatly appreciated. Rachel Hope is 14 and will be starting the 9th grade next year. I plan on trying to get her Highschool education under way while we are cruising the Islands mon. There are lots of options just from my initial feelers, I have a few months to make this decision, and would love to find the perfect school.

This is one of the schools we are looking into traversing. Welcome to Florida Virtual School

I used to work for a large school system in MD, and part of my job was to evaluate home school programs and make sure families were truly educating their kids, not just allowing them to stay home. The two most comprehensive programs I saw were Calvert for elem and middle, and Univ of Nebraska HS for high school. Just one person's opinion.

also check with your school district, as some, many around the puget sound area have home school programs within the district, and can set up the ciriculum while you are gone.

I have 2 duaghters using local district programs, that is working a LOT better than when EE was deciding the program. It takes a lot of work from the parents to succeed!

About 3 years ago one of my dockmates sent their kid to be a midshipman. He was home schooled ex his Sr year in HS. His parents were educated formally, but chose the cruiser/liveaboard life. Sometime later I enquired of a mutual friend, how the kid made out. I was informed that 11 of the class were home schooled and that they stood out, heads above the regular HS graduates. Not only academically, but in life skills ie. tenacity, judgement, and getting along. Instilling virtue is the prime objective of any normal parent and if you have the modelling at hand, why fear the endeavour? Apprenticeship is still the best teacher with a proper mentor.

Hello all I am back. I posted back in 2006, went on a years cruise, and hope to go out again.
What we did was develop a curriculum with the help of our schools. The kdis did fine. I integrated alot of historical fiction related to the areas that we were traveling. Also a book called " What your fifth grader needs to know" for grades up to 6 HIGHLY recommended. Focused on reading, reading aloud, writing, math every day.
(P.s nothing against religion, made my kids study all. Visit churches, etc. Just wanted one a little less biased to one)

Now my problem is thus, we hope to head out again and have student in high school. A junior. serious stuff. I want to purchase a curriculum to be safe. Anyone out there with a high school they could recommend? I would like to avoid internet based, knowing how reception can be spotty.

P.s our canadian friends were able to access full curriculum from their schools. Check that out first if you are from Canada!

I too am looking at possible H.S. curriculum for a sophmore. I thought Calvert was only K-8. I did find one called Nebraska H.S. I believe? Google it. Courses were around $260 per subject each. Probably a couple thousand a year for H.S. Seems a bit steep for me, but I haven't looked into it much before. Good luck.
