With the finish of eighth grade, the Calvert program ends, and things get a little more serious. This is a point of no return for homeschooling cruisers, and attrition surely sets in. Grades nine through 12 provide the transcript for college admissions offices, and at this stage, you’re forced to choose a provider: a boarding school, a correspondence school, or true homeschooling, in which you have all the responsibility. The Internet came along just in time. Correspondence school was our choice, and we’ve never looked back. We chose the program of the North Dakota Division of Independent Study, headquartered in Fargo, North Dakota. It provides a wonderful and complete course catalog, and the teachers are first-rate.
