11th Grade Homeschool Year-End Review

11th Grade Year End Review

When we adopted the motto – one year at a time, one kid at a time, I knew it might someday bring me peace when plans changed right before my eyes! When presented with the opportunity to take classes at our community college, for free, for dual credit, we enrolled our oldest son! He took all but 2 courses at the community college for 11th grade through a program called Career and College Promise. It was a learning experience for all of us and wasn’t always easy. I missed him while also feeling the freedom of having only 2 kids to teach. He loved his new freedom while learning that the classroom experience is majorly different, especially at the college level for your very first experience!

Below is a list of the courses he completed for 11th grade

1st Semester

  • English – Writing and Inquiry
  • Math – Precalculus Algebra
  • Music Appreciation
  • Intro to Sociology

2nd Semester

  • English – Writing/Research in the Disciplines
  • General Psychology
  • College Transfer Success – required course for the program he is in

At Home

  • Literature portion of English
  • US History – Notgrass  

Some of the courses are by choice and some are required for the program he is in. We had to choose a pathway and within the Associate in Science Pathway, he was given courses that fulfill the requirements.

Moving forward…

For the upcoming year {12th grade} he will take the following at the community college for sure:

  • Biology 1
  • Biology 2
  • Math – Precalculus Trigonometry
  • American Literature

He has also decided to give the technical pathway a try and take a course in the electrician path to see if it’s something he likes. I love that he is not set in stone on the college path and is exploring all options of what the best journey might be for him. We are huge fans of finding the right fit for each person. It just isn’t the same for all!

He may end up at college, he may decide to be an electrician. He may go away to college, he may complete his bachelor degree online. His options are still open at this point, but we are still making sure he is prepared for the go-away-to-college route if that’s what he chooses in the end. If he does that, his top choice is still Charleston Southern University. Decisions will need to be made soon, so I bet you will see things unfold on Instagram as we walk this final year together!

Outside of School…

He does many other things besides school! He has worked at Chick-Fil-A for over a year now and loves it. He is spending several weeks of his summer volunteering at camps for adults and kids with special needs {which he has done for the past few summers also}. It brings me so much joy to see him enjoy serving others! During the school year he volunteers with the special needs ministry at our church.

It seems just yesterday I was starting this blog and he was in Kindergarten.

Before Now…

Curious to see what he did in the past {since I’ve been blogging}?
