2005-2006 School year
This is an exciting year for us. Our 16 year old son is going to the Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College in Gautier, where he will be studying Computer Science. We are very proud of him, he scored high enough on his ACT to get early admission as well as a full scholarship. The early admission deal meant minimum paperwork for this homeschool mom to fill out. Although I do recommend transcripts for students in Jr High and High School. It doesn't have to be anything fancy just the student's name, social security number, birth date, and ACT/SAT scores along with the courses taken and the GPA.
I have a pretty heavy workload for my remaining homeschool student. We will be studying:
Physical Geography
Runkle World Physical Geography Set w/Hardcover Text & Teachers Guide
