Comment on How Much Does Homeschooling Cost? by Karen https://www.time4learning.com/blog/new-homeschooler/how-much-does-homeschooling-cost/#comment-214 Wed, 02 Jan 2019 06:00:49 +0000 https://www.time4learning.com/?p=12133#comment-214 I manage to spend about $150-250 per kid per year through middle school (13 children). I use disposable books for most language arts so that is one of my biggest expenses, although sites such as homeschoolclassifieds.com and Amazon help keep my costs down. Science is my next biggest investment – supplies add up fast but it’s our favorite subject so well worth the money. Middle school is relatively inexpensive as most of the books we use are not consumable. Then we hit high school. Non-consumable texts are a one-time investment but the supplies…whew!!! We budget a huge chunk of money for those last 4 years. Thankfully, a good friend had prepared me for the potential expenses so when I shelled out $1500 for a full Chemistry lab and $3500 for a simply fantastic Physics lab (such fun!) I didn’t experience too much sticker shock. Personally, I think investing money in high school is worth it and I wouldn’t try to skimp on those grades, especially the sciences. When we see our kids delight-learning with Wimshurst generators and other Physics goodies, that is priceless. That being said, I budget $1000 per kid per year in high school which includes supplies (always more science stuff to buy!) and activities.

These sets include the student’s book, any work books, as well as the teacher’s editions with all the correct answers. These can be obtained for free like any other book you would check out from a library. Only draw back is they need to be renewed every few weeks and you can not write directly in any of the books. Still if willing to deal with the extra inconvenience they are FREE to use. So if you have a local university or college whose library is open to the public it may be worth checking out.

We don’t have a lot of money but my son is on the spectrum and I am worried about his anxiety and him starting high school next year.
