Textbook Sources

The Univ. of Nebraska's Correspondence High School is a great place to order textbooks for home use. The math textbooks, starting with Algebra I, are excellent and inexpensive (around $50-$60)). Subtract at least 5 years from the stated grade level for science and social studies. Warning: the Expository Writing and Research Writing courses are challenging even for gifted students. Foreign Language courses are grammar based; if you want conversation and speaking, pick up a Foreign Service Institute course at a local bookseller. Textbook Catalog
