Frequently Asked High School Questions

What is Greenleaf High School?

Greenleaf High School is a program with unaccredited homeschool high school courses that can be done completely at home or with local high school groups created by parents. 

Is Greenleaf High School Curriculum similar to The Good and the Beautiful Pre K-8 Curriculum?

Greenleaf High School curriculum is similar to The Good and the Beautiful PreK-8 curriculum in that it integrates only top-quality literature, clean literature; that it connects students to God, nature, and high-character; that is academically solid and thorough. The high school curriculum is all self-directed by the student, but can also be completed in a group setting with parent and student, in school settings, or in co-op settings.

When will new Greenleaf High School courses be available?

For the 2019/2020 school year, Language Arts 1 and Language Arts 2, and the Little Men Honors Book Study will be available. High School 3 will release in the summer of 2020. We do not have any further release dates available at this time.

What is behind the name Greenleaf High School?

Because Greenleaf High School is unique from our Pre-K through 8 curriculum and is more rigorous, it needed a different, more mature name. The high school division is named after the American writer and abolitionist John Greenleaf Whittier (1807-1892), who represents important aspects of our curriculum: high-quality literature, high moral character, hard work, a love of nature, and a love of learning. Students study John Greenleaf Whittier and read a biography about him in the High School 1 language arts course.

Can I get more information about the overall program?

Students can take as many or as few classes as they would like from Greenleaf High School. Our courses are meant to leave students with a solid, beautiful education and a sense of accomplishment. The courses are self-directed or done in a group (which can be teacher-directed). Parents grade all classes (or by teachers if the student is working within a class or group). The courses use physical materials, with many of them containing online audio or videos to watch as part of the course.

What curriculum should I use for my high schooler while I am waiting for Greenleaf High School Curriculum to release?

For the 2019/2020 school year, Greenleaf High School will have language arts curricula. History can be studied using The Good and the Beautiful K–12 family-style history program. You will need to use another curriculum for math and science.
