    A reader is looking for recommendations for a good secular high-school level biology curriculum. Any suggestions?

    Oak Meadow has a textbook based course. It uses a fairly standard textbook and will certainly be secular. If your reader wants to use living books, I can give you a list of resources we have used.

    My dd has enjoyed math courses (online) from Thinkwell. They have science courses as well, and are available at a very affordable price through Homeschool Buyer’s Co-op.

    Try Keystone Highschool online. They offer AP Biology among other subjects. You can take one subject or a whole grade. Textbooks are also included with online classes.

    My daughter has been taking their 7th grade science online in their new middle school program & really loves it. We had used Oak Meadow in the past but found it was not as in depth for science as we were looking for and Oak meadow required alot of hands on projects that made it hard for us to do when we travel.

    I’ve like Prentice Hall’s text by Miller and Levine. It’s fairly clear and straight forward, the labs can be done at home without too much trouble. I’ve used it with both kids.
