Hot! Middle and High School Plan: Bible-Based Homeschooling- UPDATED

this post may contain affiliate links.

A Bible-Based Homeschool plan for the new year. Phew. I did it. Well, the Lord did it. HE finally helped me get a plan in place for the new school year. This year we will have a 9th grader, 7th grader, 5th grader, and a 1st grader. To God be the glory.

High school was the biggest challenge for me to plan. I just kept praying that the Lord would direct our steps, and I am confident He will guide us as we embark on this new season.

Our family verse for this year is Romans 12:2:

 Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.


So here is my (loose) plan for Middle and High The history is planned out for the first 12 weeks according to Ambelside. We will be adding in others after 12 weeks.  Disclosure: I have full knowledge that life can change at any time and the Lord may redirect the plan! 😉 This is also not necessarily an exhaustive list- we are always learning and adding in things. This is the core of the formal stuff though.
