Well my first 1 1/2 years in PF I was homeschooled too, and I think I got 20 or so the first year... which was way more than anyone else, and I hadn't even tried super hard. I think homeschooling goes really well with Pathfinders, because as you mentioned you do have a little more time on your hands to develop your leadership abilities and earn honors. The main thing about it is, you learn as you do your homework, you don't have a teacher lecturing you on how to do it before hand, so your time is cut in half, or nearly.

Two schoolyears ago I started homeschooling again for highschool (in fall of '05). I also started carrying on TLT duties as well. I am soo glad I was homeschooling, because I think I benefited a lot more from the program that way. Since I was the only TLT at the time who was homeschooled, a lot more responsibility fell on me simply because I felt I had the time when no one else did.

This year, I am, at least according to the books, "homeschooled", but I'm only doing one class at home (well, I guess 2 or three: Chemistry, and Bible/Health). I'm also taking a 2 classes at my local highschool and 1 at the local Adventist college. It's a lot of fun, and is a little bit challenging (although so far most of everything I've "learned" minus that classes I'm doing at home are things I already knew). Plus I'm a Bible Bowl coach this year (I'm too old to participate :( ). I honestly don't know where I'd be if it weren't for both Pathfinders and being homschooled...

True, as a home schooled pathfinder I did attain lots and lots of honors. As I got older, I even taught 2 classwork groups, and taught a half dozen honors or so.

Now, I'm taking classes at a community college, and am still evolved in pathfinders.

Take the opportunity of homeschooling to have a lot of fun in Pathfinders by doing extra activities and honors!

The small amount of homeschool that I experienced was mixed. I took 2 classes via distance learning. I loved the astronomy class I took, but really hated the algebra 2 class I took. The algebra 2 book didn't do a very good job of explaining the material and I was at a disadvantage of taking a full load of academy classes at the same time and being at least 2 different timezones away from the campus and I always tried calling for help during lunch hours. :(

Yeah, I hope too... if there's a dusting of snow or frost or anything I can't drive...

Anyhow, back on topic. I love Apologia science. I'm taking chemistry this semester. Dr. Wile explains things so simply, and yet goes into so much detail at the same time. It's a really good education at a very understandable, make-sense level, and all through it keeps pointing to God as the Creator :D

Yes! Apologia Science is very, very good! I did it in my homeschooling in high school. I am now taking General Chemistry at a community college and I am finding it not too difficult. The background I got in the Chemistry course really has helped me. Your right it is very easy to understand. Which is a plus, with homeschooling... although my dad is a chemistry major so I could ask him questions also.

Wow! I'm impressed w/ all the homeschooled pathfinders on here! :smt038 I guess you can include me now! :smt016 lol I am homeschooled and have been since about the 4th grade... There have been times where I wanted to go to a school but it's worth it... :smt023 I wouldn't be able to travel and participate in the big pathfinder events like I do. If I was in school the teacher would have me for lunch {this would be the teacher} :arrow: :smt092 {this would be me} :arrow: :smt091 with all the trips and things that I do! lol
So homeschooling has been worth it..and anyone who knows me knows that I am NOT socialy challenged! :P I am almost finished though with school so...but im not through yet :D

No. I was using some other book that was horrid. I can only count corispondance as far as homeschooling, but my brother did half a year of homeschool.

Mitch: yeah, I've heard a lot of people that homeschooled through highschool say that even in college they refer back to their Apologia textbooks because it makes more sense. Lol! (If anyone's interested, Apologia has a forum: apologia.com/lounge.)

missiongirl07: I got a t-shirt a couple months ago that has a yellow diamond-shaped "sign" on the front that says: CAUTION: UNSOCIALIZED HOMESCHOOLER. Lol, when I saw that I just had to get it :lol: (the website that I got it from is http://www.homeschoolmania.com)

Welcome snowboarder! :) Just a note, this type of forum can be good for language, or writing class. :P It really does take some time, to get a good post. Especially when you have to do research to find something you want to share. So take your time on your posts, and use it as practice for school. Read over your posts, and check for clarity, and spelling... lol I know that sounds like school, but it might just help you in school! 8)
