Program Selection Chart

Begin with our “Program Selection Chart.” As you can see by the chart below, based on your child’s age he/she may fit in several different guides. For example, a 16 year old might fit in Missions to Modern Marvels or World Geography in the extension age range; or World HistoryU.S. History I, or U.S. History II in the target age range. Once you see the group of guides where your child could place, you can move on to our “Program Placement Chart” to fine-tune your placement.

NOTE: If you have more than one child, think about whether you would like to combine any of your children or keep them separate.

Program Placement Chart

The “Program Placement Chart” below is designed to help you narrow down which guide will best suit your child. This chart has been divided into two parts. To begin, simply view “Part 1” and then follow the instructions provided on the chart. After completing “Part 1,” if you are still unsure which of our guides will fit your child best, move on to “Part 2” to help you decide. The charts below are only for our first two high school level guides: World Geography and World History. If your child is a junior or senior in high school and can do the skills listed in the charts below, he/she is ready for our U.S. History I or U.S. History II guides.

NOTE: The charts are provided in a printable format for your convenience. If you have more than one child, a good strategy is to use a different color marker for each child as you complete the charts.

Scope and Sequence Chart

Finally, have a look at the “Scope and Sequence” chart to get an idea of which high school credits your child will earn in each guide in this series. Each guide includes everything you need to earn all required credits for a full year of high school study.
