High school homeschool co-ops have come to the rescue of many homeschooling families. Unlike co-ops which are geared for elementary aged children, a high school co-op program caters to teens. Many of these co-ops hire outside experts to come into the program to teach those subjects parents are not comfortable teaching. For instance, a local Algebra teacher may come in and teach homeschooling teens one day a week in the evening for two hours. The teacher would then give out weekly assignments which the students would be required to turn in the following week.
Homeschooling teens usually record their classes on hand held recorders so they can review the lessons they have learned. Many teachers of high school co-ops will also correspond with teens via email throughout the week or keep a blog with pertinent information posted for the teens. If your teen needs the help of an “expert” you should look in your area for a high school homeschool co-op program.
