In an effort to help our homeschooling families best plan their course schedules and meet their graduation credit requirements, we have broken our high school appropriate courses into Carnegie credit units.
For our purposes, we have used the formula of 150 hours equating to 1 Carnegie Credit. The credit assignments reflect the amount of time expected to complete a given course.
It is our hope that this list will help you to build your high school class schedule in a way that meets your curriculum needs at the same time that it builds the necessary skills in your student.
