I wanted to homeschool my 15 year old daughter, but I do not have the education. so I found homeschooling the name is Cortona Academy in Herndon, VA. They have about 50 kids and 20 teachers. I wanted to know if anybody out there knows anything about this school to tell me if it is the wright move. They charge 27,000.00.

$27K for high school? No way. You'll be much better off saving the money, having her study at home and take community college courses for anything she may need help with. The courses will probably cost around $300 each (plus books). Follow that up with standardized tests (AP, CLEP) and she'll get into college just fine.

I agree with the above comment. There is absolutely no reason to spend that kind of money. I should know, I just graduated with student loans in the worst job market in U.S. history and my word of advice would be to start off with the home school and have her start taking community college courses on things that she struggles with and she will have no problem being accepted into a college or university.
