Home Schooling while Cruising
We are planning a year long cruise with our three children (12, 10 and 4 yr old) and would greatly appreciate information from other cruisers regarding the home schooling process for the different grade levels. Do you purchase a cirriculum or make up your own, and recommendations for non-religious cirriculums to purchase for computer software as well

home school
We used the Calvert School in Baltimore, MD. Great, easy 100% complete down to pencils, tablets and paper. Very easy to work with and a very comprehensive system.

you will not be disappointed. We supplemented with field trips, museum visits, and other things.
