Well I'm currently trying to convince my parents to let me homeschool. I'm only having a few problems with a couple of things. Math, If I stayed in PS I would probably do math like Calc. And possibly Trig. I have no clue how to get those same courses with little cost (my parents aren't excatlly going to shell out big dollars). Science I should have less of a problem with, I think I could only use textbooks. I don't think I should have any problems with Reading/English/Grammar. There aren't any standardized tests for History so as long as I'm learning something.....My current situation PS I'm in Algebra 1 Honors taking Physics, and American History. I'm in 8th grade and I'm 13.

The few courses you can't manage from textbooks - such as Calculus and lab science - can be taken at your local community college, usually for around $300 per course + materials. Doing Calculus online doesn't work real well, and it will be painful trying to work the concepts out on your own.
