Many homeschool high schoolers will need Health & Social Sciences on their homeschool transcript. 7Sisters offers a Health curriculum that is comprehensive (and maybe more important: is a no-busywork text). For teens who need or want Social Sciences on their homeschool transcripts, download: Early Childhood Education, History and Philosophy of the Western World, Human Development, Philosophy, and Psychology.

Consumer Math & Financial Literacy: Don't let your teen graduate without it! So many of adulting's stressors relate to money. When teens learn money management and planning while still in high school, they can begin experiencing financial success and security in their youth. Then they can carry those skills through the rest of their lives. That's why 7Sisters offers a truly interactive course that teens actually like, with skills that teens actually remember! Download this course as a stand alone or in a Curriculum Bundle with Financial Literacy, Human Development, Psychology, Career Exploration and Early Childhood Education. These are wise choices for a powerful high school experience and life preparation.
7SistersHomeschool's Literature Guides teach literature-learning skills but don't kill the book and aren't full of busywork. Sometimes teens hate literature study guides because they try to cover all the concepts possible for each book. This can be overwhelming for teens and destroys their love for good literature. That's why our study guides only cover simple background, basic vocabulary, one or two literary themes or devices, and inferential skills-building questions. Each 7Sisters Literature Study Guide includes meaningful activities for teens who want to level up their work to Honors. There's not ONE right way to homeschool high school, but if you want our advice, choose one guide per month. For teens who are interested, add more guides for real thinking and learning with no busywork and no overkill.
English & Writing from 7SistersHomeschool.com offers no-busywork ELA that teens actually appreciate- and you'll appreciate the planning and price!

We bring these skills to them in step-by-step, no-busywork, daily lessons that make sometimes intimidating subjects accessible. 7Sisters starts with basic basics and brings teens along until they are confident in each topic. PLUS, 7Sisters English & Writing curriculum is level-able: teens can succeed with adjustments if they have special needs, average teens can work through the courses without being overwhelmed and honors-level teens receive instructions on meaningful ways to level up the work.

Loved using YouTube to show concepts. Loved the enrichment activities and discussions. Thanks for writing the Psychology curriculum!”GATE Co-op
I’m a Science teacher in our co-op. Found the Intro to Psychology and Human Development curricula- it sounded much more fun to teach than Physics. We had a great group of high schoolers as my “guinea pigs” for this new class (we went thru psych and then right into HDev for year long class). It was AWESOME! Got great feedback from the students and I hope to offer it again when next group of HS students get there.”Lisa C.
I like the ease of use and varying levels of challenge offered with the literature bundles. I can use the same novel with my kids while allowing them to work at his or her individual level. We have had rich dinner conversations thanks to many of the writing prompts and questions.”Courtney E.
I LOVE your podcast! I really feel like the 7th sister, laughing and enjoying homeschooling with you on The Homeschool High School Podcast!”Becky
