  1. A solid study of Language Arts
    review by Eileen W. on 8/11/2016

    This course was an excellent challenge for my child. The grammar component was challenging, detailed and provided a solid understanding of the topics. As a parent, I too, learned a great deal more than I did many years ago! The student learns how to develop a well thought essay style. The vocabulary is extensive and the literature is excellent. As with all of the K12 literature and grammar, this course is excellent. It prepares the student well for high school and to become an excellent communicator later in life.

To use this course, you'll need a computer with an Internet connection.  Some courses require additional free software programs, which you can download from the Internet.
