Hello I Have A 9th Grader And This Year We Are Trying Monarch For Her Curriculum. The Past Two

How much would it cost to homeschool A 9th grader.?

You can get boxed programs by grade level, or take a placement test to find out where you are using a certain curriculum...

I have a friend who LIVES by AOP Switched-on schoolhouse...
none of my children are old enough for it yet (starts in 3rd grade) but she has two who are using it... they used to use PACE's but switched....

Homeschooling CAN be free if you use hte internet and your library card.... the most important thing is to READ READ READ READ READ..... you can also use the SAT and ACT study guides (or PRE SAT ACT GUIDES that teach you HOW to do the math) to base your education on since part of the reason for High School is to prepare you for college courses and life in an occupation....

I personally think that if you are hte type that needs assignments and a schedule a boxed curriculum would be best... if you are SUPER independent and will get done what is NEEDED without being asked even once your library card adn the internet should suffice...

www.hslda.org is the only advice i can give on state requirements, but yes, a person who meets the minimum requirements in most states can tutor (even if they are not your parents) you, so perhaps your neighbor is a good choice IF they aren't charging an arm and a leg....

I personally don't believe this talk about the parents needing to have a High school diploma or GED or BA/BS to teach their kids at home and do a good job.... just crazy.......

what i DO know is that YOU CAN DO THIS... even if you just kinda look around for the first year and borrow things from friends or try before you buy for a while....

the MOST important thing to remmeber is that Home Schooling is NOT LIKE SCHOOL AT HOME... what you learn and how you learn at home will NOT be anything similar to Public School unless you INTEND for it to be that way and PLAN for it to be that way (which i do NOT recommend)

You can DO IT, YOU CAN DO IT.... have fun!

What are some things that a 9th grader should know academically?

Generally speaking, the four core classes in 9th grade are:
Algebra 1
English/Literature 1
Bilogy 1 or IPC
World Geography

Rounding it out with two electives chosen from:
Foreign language
Keyboarding
PE/Health
Art
Music

That's just a real basic, general freshman level plan, that will work nicely in to a college prep program.

If you want, check out the various diploma programs at your local highschool. They should have this posted on a website.
Although homeschooling is about freedom, sometimes it helps to maintain focus by having a plan and there is nothing wrong with using someone else's diploma program to guide the order of your studies.
I use it myself for my daughter, who is a 9th grader. Well, technically she will be a 10th grader next month. Were DOES the time go?

What does a 9th grader know?

I'm in 9th grade but the classes are accelerated. (H means Honors)

I take:
Geometry 1 H
Biology 1 H
English 1 H
3 1/2 electives

Normal classes are:
Algebra 1
Principles of Science
English 1
3 1/2 electives

Thats about it. It's all pretty easy especially the normal ones. I even took most of them in 8th grade. You should be really excited about going to 9th grade. You must be really smart. Keep it up! :D

Wow… that’s a blessing and a curse. I feel your pain!First of all, here’s some information about MAP scores: http://www.mkpcpta.org/MAP-Scores-FAQ.pdf. It looks like 235 in math is pretty much as high as it will go… 9th-grade level, in fact.I would check if your local school district to has programs for highly-capable students. The teacher should probably know about those. If there isn’t one in your district, maybe there’s one in a nearby district, and you can either move (I know…) or ask them to make an exception.The beauty of programs like that is not really the more challenging curriculum, but that the child is surrounded by other smart kids, which is really important. I was in a program like that as a kid, and I still have friends from that period, 30+ years later.I wouldn’t completely discount private schools. Some of them have pretty generous financial support, and may be happy to have such a bright student. Be aware, however, that “private” doesn’t always mean “good” or “academically strong”. Do a little research and talk to other parents, if you can.Finally, remember that first grade, and to some extent primary school in general, are more about socialization and building work and study habits, and less about academics. The danger is mostly that your child will just be bored out of his mind - and that’s bad, I know - but don’t worry too much about whether he’s going to fall behind academically compared to more privileged children. If you find him a good school in 2–3 or even 5 years, he’ll probably catch up very quickly. Again, the real challenge will be to keep him engaged and interested.Good luck, and don’t despair!
