I am going to start homeschooling next year and since I will be a Junior my parents are letting me more or less choose my own curriculum. I am going to enroll in Bridgeway Academy so I will get all the coursework from them but how am I supposed to know what to do in one day? I'll be enrolled in 7 classes: 4 core and 3 electives.

I live in Massachusetts so my school district requires the curriculum that will be covered and I want to be as specific as possible. I am 16 so I am actually not required to even be approved by the school district but I want to do it 'legally' so I don't look like a high school drop out to colleges. Bridgeway will keep my transcripts and give me a diploma but I still want to do it right.

So any help with the curriculum would be appreciated.

Have you talked with the advisors at Bridgeway? They should be able to help you with this.

I can assure that when you apply to college, there won't be a single question about how (or even if) you complied with the homeschool laws in your state. You will have a transcript and diploma from Bridgeway; that's all the colleges will care about. And here's a life lesson: As a law-abiding citizen, you do NOT have to over-comply with the law. In other words, if the homeschool law in Massachusetts does not require your parents to get approval and whatnot in order for you to be homeschooled, then don't do it. There is NO value in doing so.

Again, I'm pretty sure that Bridgeway helps you with that. That's one of the things your parents are paying them for.

And for the record, I'm very impressed with you. I have no doubt that you'll do well. Your parents must be very proud of you. Smile
