High school at home has so many advantages for our teens.

But at the same time, it can be a struggle to find just the right resource for them.  And with the price of curriculum, it can be more than taxing to the budget. It can seem impossible at times.

Then there is now a staggering amount of homeschool high school curriculum to look at. It can be overwhelming, especially for those of us who are newish to homeschooling. Or even for those of us who have done it for awhile.

Over the years of homeschooling our 2e teen, we came to know the homeschool curriculum market and developed our favorites within that. That is why I put together this list of our favorite homeschool high school curricula and resources.

Are you looking for English or social studies curricula?  Or something for science?  A course on  career exploration?  How about something for financial literacy?  Or SAT prep?

I hope that you have fun browsing around on this list!  I organized my list into 14 categories of frugal resources, many of which we enjoyed using in our homeschool.
