Choosing GA Virtual School over Ga Cyber Academy

It may seem odd that I have chosen to use a public school program to help homeschool my kids.  I have always been against public school at home, so I guess I should make a statement about this.

First,. because we could not get dual enrollment for my son's senior year, I wanted something to show to colleges that he was at the same level as high school kids.

Second, while Georgia Virtual School is sponsored by the state, it keeps the parent in control of what the child will take and even gives flexibility in scheduling.

Third, it is not Georgia Cyber Academy, in which the school makes all educational choices for the child.  I strongly dislike Georgia Cyber Academy because kids who are struggling in school, would almost never be successful in it.

Anyway, we chose to take a couple of online classes this year through Georgia Virtual School.  My son is taking Physics, Spanish, and a math class.  As I am not equipped to teach the spanish or physics, I had to find something, and this is free... more  money for college.  My daughter is taking Mandarin Chinese... there is no way I can help her with that.... for this reason, I am finding individual classes at Georgia Virtual School quite useful for my needs.

Update:  Didn't have an awesome experience with Georgia Virtual School.  I only recommend if your kids can follow a typical school schedule... which sucks all of the fun out of homeschooling.
