High School Health Course

Time4Learning offers an online, interactive high school curriculum that includes math, english, science and social studies courses that correlate to state standards. It can be used as a primary homeschool curriculum, a supplement to your current curriculum and as an afterschool or summer skill building program. At the high school level, Time4Learning is organized by courses rather than grade levels, so parents have the option of choosing any four as part of membership.

The Health curriculum is one of two elective courses offered at the high school level. Health is taught using a combination of multimedia lessons, instructional videos, worksheets, quizzes, tests and both online and offline projects.

**PLEASE NOTE: This course contains sensitive materials pertaining to sexually transmitted diseases, healthy dating relationships, reproductive health, and family planning. It is strongly recommended that parents review the content before registering students for the Health Course.**
