 7 Sisters Homeschool High School English vs. Oak Meadow

We started off using Oak Meadow for our homeschool high school English until we found 7 Sisters Homeschool.

Oak Meadow offered lots of courses in literature and composition for high schoolers, which were well out together.  They taught literary analysis as well.  Here is a review of Oak Meadow English.  We used Oak Meadow for a few years until we found 7 Sisters Homeschool.

When we found 7 Sisters English, we were pleasantly surprised.  It also was well put together, but was way more frugal.  And we liked that it was written by homeschool moms.

7 Sisters Homeschool offers a variety of high school curriculum.

 It is written by veteran homeschool moms who developed their own courses for high schoolers in their own co-op.  So all of their resources and courses are tried and true.

The 7 Sisters approach is based on over 20 years of homeschooling.

These veteran homeschool authors know how to capture a student's interest and then lead them into a solid study of literature all while avoiding any busywork.

And they offer English resources in a variety of ways, such as year long courses, or Literature Guides for just one particular novel that your teen wants to read.

Each of these courses is helpful for teaching your teen literary analysis, which was crucial to my 2e daughter developing her critical thinking skills, for college readiness.
