Next year I will be enrolled in Bridgeway Academy and taking 7 corrospondence courses. I know 7 is a lot but I wanted to add at least one more of my own. The courses online they send me everything and the curriculum is written. I want to write my own. Maybe a more specific science class. I am interested in Biology and will be taking Chem next year so maybe a light Bio class since I'm taking it this year? Would that be too much?

How many classes does your child/children take and how long do they learn each everyday?

Hmm. Depends on how long the courses run for. If you're taking community college courses, you can probably manage five moderate-difficulty courses per semester, plus a couple during the summer school period, so the max you'd be taking over a year would be like 12 courses. If the courses are more difficult, however (Calc II and III, for instance), or have a longer time-frame and cover more material, you obviously won't be able to handle as many.
