Forms 3-6

High School

Please note that the topics of our High School Courses are aimed at students in grades 9 and 10.

Because we use living books (in lieu of traditional textbooks) as well as source and original documents, the materials are appropriate for grades 11 + 12 as well, with slight modification, and we are more than willing to accept students in those grades.  However, we highly encourage homeschooled Juniors and Seniors to explore dual credit courses, and therefore what we offer at HCA may not meet transcript requirements for your child.  

 

 

Courses for high school are offered on a 2 year rotation.  Please browse the classes offered below and if you have any questions regarding our courses, transcript preparation or dual enrollment information,

please contact our office prior to enrollment in HCA.
