Hi friends! I’m back today with our 12th Grade Homeschool Curriculum haul. Today I’m sharing everything we plan to use for our 12th grader this year! We have a couple of fun new things to try too, so stick around and let’s get started!
Watch our 2020-2021 12th Grade Homeschool Curriculum video here.
Our 2020-2021 12th Grade Curriculum:
- Bible: Word of Life Challenger Quiet Time for Teens
- English/Literature: British Literature by Janice Campbell
- History: This year we’re doing a Dual Enrollment U.S. History program through local community college. This will give her 1 high school credit and 3 college credits! I also recommend BJU 12th Grade Online U.S. History/Geography 11
- Math: Pre-Calculus with Geometry by Shormann Math
- Dual Enrollment Electives: Graphic Design I & II, Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop I & II
- Writing: Institute for Excellence in Writing
- SAT Testing
- English Literature CLEP Test – She did that this summer so she is done and passed! Yay! This means she’s already earned 3 college credits for English!

Hi! My daughter is going to be a Senior next year and she is interested in pursuing a Graphic Design degree. Can you please share what you used for your daughter’s electives in Art? (Graphic Design I & II, Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop I & II)
Thank you kindly,
Hi, yes, this year she is doing all of those classes through a community college here that offers dual enrollment for high schoolers. I am also versed in Photoshop and Illustrator so I can help her as well. Also, there are some great classes online, and we’ve recently taken some on SkillShare if you don’t have a community college that offers classes like these.
Erica, first off: I love your content! Our high schools in WA grant a full high school credit for every 5 credits taken at the community college. This means that in two out of three quarters dual enrollment they get a full year worth of high school credits if they do dual enrollment full time. My daughter took advantage of this at the public high school and went to Germany for one quarter as an exchange student and she didn’t have to worry about transferring any credits. I would suggest checking out your local high school’s course catalog to see what their dual credit policy is and considering adapting the same way of granting credit for these classes if it benefits your homeschool.
One thing to keep in mind about CLEP tests is that while they can be great, and I have personally used them for myself to get certified into the business major at our state university, not all colleges and programs will accept these credits. Medical programs eg won’t usually accept them. Also, Washington State University accepts CLEP but University of WA doesn’t. Just something to keep in mind.
Hi! What a great opportunity for your daughter! Yes, our high schools do offer some dual enrollment credits as well. They didn’t have as many classes as our community college offered, so we went that route. But it’s great to check out all of your options!
