I have two teenage boys and we’ve been homeschooling them for the past few years and both of our boys are passionate about technology. I started planning for next year’s curriculum (I’m a bit of a planner) and wanted to include technology courses, we use American School of Correspondence for our main core classes, but unfortunately they do not offer any technology courses. I did a search and found a company that fits our exact needs. The company is called Giant Campus Academy and they offer courses that are purely technology focused, I showed my two boys and they were excited and can’t wait to start. I was wondering if you heard of them and if you knew of any other curriculum provides that provide technology courses.
I haven't heard of them. Sorry. My hubby is a techie, and we've got great college/high school programs around here, so technology homeschool programs hadn't even crossed my mind. I don't plan to use any, so I haven't researched them. Sorry!
We'd love to have you stick around, though. Can you tell us more about ASC? I haven't heard of that one. How long have you been using them? How old are your kids?
@BensMom - our boys our 15 and 16 and we've been using ASC for the past two years. We were recommended to ASC from a friend, they have a few options, you can either use their curriculum full time or part time, they offer full range of classes needed; math, science, foreign language and more needed to complete high school.
@Miguels mommy - We've looked at k12, but I think my boys had to be full time students with k12 to enroll for those classes, k12 is a great option, but it wasn't an option for me or for my boys. When I spoke to Giant Campus Academy, I found at they actually provide the technology curriculum to k12, so that was good news to us and since we do our classes a'la carte, it worked to be a better fit. But thanks for suggestion.
