The Home Learning institute offers a variety off courses for grades 1 -12.  This is an affordable choice that offers a good degree of flexibility in the way that the material is delivered to meet your families needs.  Most of the material is self corrected using the interactive training tools but assignments and essays will still need to be assessed and corrected by the parent.

Home Learning Institute: I love the fact that this option is so affordable!  The cost is only about $50 a month. With options for full curriculum, or advanced courses and diploma programs for the older grades, it is ideal for any budget.  A monthly program gives you access to over 120 courses that are approved by most state and federal education programs.
