HIGH SCHOOL HELP
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)....

SAINTS P.E.
Come and check us out... first time is FREE!

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.
