RISE is a university-model academic home school program for middle and high school students in Naples, Florida, designed to enable Christian families to fulfill their Proverbs 22:6 mandate while challenging the next generation to RISE UP to become all that God has created them to be, both spiritually and academically. Talented in their fields, RISE instructors have a passion for their subject matter, a zeal for teaching, and a desire to transmit the love of Christ. They partner with parents by instructing students in a once-weekly classroom setting while parents oversee student work through the week.
Classical Conversations supports homeschooling parents by cultivating the love of learning through a Christian worldview in fellowship with other families. We believe there are three keys to a great education: classical, Christian, and Community. We believe that you CAN homeschool your students PreK thru high school and have several communities meeting weekly in Collier and Lee counties. Our mission is to know God and make Him known.

Dereck Owen's Online Math & Physics Courses
All of Mr. Owens' classes are available online:
Prealgebra, Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, Precalculus, Calculus, Physical Science, and Physics
Videos of all of the lectures are provided, either over the web or on Cd or Dvd. Students watch the videos on their home computer. These lectures contain the exact same content as the lectures delivered in class. In some cases, the videos contain additional graphics, effects, and animations that cannot be drawn on a whiteboard but are well suited to a computer.
2. Lecture Notes
As students watch the videos, they complete the printed lecture notes by hand. The lecture notes are a skeleton of the teacher's lecture notes. As students follow the lecture, they fill in the blank space in the lecture notes, writing down the main points and solving example problems. In this way, the students learn by doing the work and writing it down as well as by listening to the material and seeing it on screen.
3. Homework and Tests
Online students have the same homework assignments and tests as students who attend the class. Students can submit their completed work in whatever manner is most convenient - fax, email, regular mail, or by other means. The papers are graded, and scanned images of the graded papers are automatically emailed to the students and the parents. With email and fax, the process can be very fast, so students may receive feedback on their work very quickly.

Easy Peasy All in One High School
My name is Lee Giles. I’m the founder of the Easy Peasy All-in-One Homeschool, a complete, online Christian curriculum. In 2012 I “went public” with my children’s homeschool assignments that I had been putting online. The site has grown very quickly and is too big now to be kept all in one place. As I’ve expanded to high school, I needed a new beginning. This site is where the high school courses for the Easy Peasy All-in-One Homeschool will be kept. It is still under construction and you will find notes to myself at the bottom of developing courses. You can read more about what courses are planned by using the courses link. You can also learn more about the courses and progression for any given subject by clicking on those main headings (eg. English)....

The Saints program is designed to be a professional physical education program for homeschooled children. From September through May we teach "every sport imaginable". We teach four different sports activities from the ground level up for four consecutive weeks. Then we rotate, teaching four new sports activities for another four consecutive weeks and so on. We are based on a "drop-off" program, but parents are certainly welcome to stay if you feel that is in the best interest of your child(ren).
We hold strongly to "one rule": RESPECT.... respect our leaders, respect one another, respect the equipment, respect one's self, and respect the environment. Through this one rule, children honor and respect God!
We hold "SAINTS" P.E. classes "rain or shine." When it rains, we turn to "plan B" and operate under the shelter-covered areas playing games as a group.
