Our unstructured Secondary Unit Program will take your student from Ninth through Twelfth Grades in history, language arts and fine arts.
Using our pre-read and carefully selected book suggestions, assignment ideas and resources lists, you can give your student(s) a Charlotte Mason-type education that will be engaging and effective! In addition to the timeline,map skills, writing and narration ideas, our high school unit program includes a Scripture lesson and time management skill instruction per unit!
- You’ll easily be able to choose books and plan high school courses as we let you know possible course credits for each book suggestion. You could teach American/British/World History, American/British/World Literature, World Geography, Missions and more! (Note that we do not cover high school science in this program.)
- You can tailor book choices to your student’s reading level as we mark books more challenging, challenging or less challenging, depending on their length and vocabulary.
- You can choose books that fit your student’s learning style because we identify materials that are available in auditory or more visual formats.
- Your student will have a multitude of suggested history writing, map, timeline, narration, fine arts and project assignments to choose from, and additional sections are provided in this high school curriculum for unit Bible memorization/devotions, organizational and time management techniques and multi-age activities.
- This homeschool high school curriculum includes unit lists of people, places and topics for further research.

I can see how to teach history with whole books, but what about Language Arts?
Our Teacher’s Manual included in the Secondary Unit Program will teach you how to teach and evaluate language arts, including how to teach oral and written narrations and use them for evaluation, more advanced writing assignment ideas, how to use students’ compositions to teach grammar and spelling, as well as a crucial section on teaching and evaluating high school writing. (Our parents love that section!)
