HSLDA-Evaluation of High School Credits-For courses that do not use a standard high school level textbook, log the hours that your child spends completing the course work. One credit is approx. 120-180 hours of work. The upper end of this range (180 hrs) is usually appropriate for lab science courses, while 150 hours is the average for a year long academic course such as English or History.

When their older brothers and sisters return to visit the same schools and campuses they attended, they find a radically different moral climate. . . . The spiritual strength sufficient for our youth to stand firm just a few years ago will soon not be enough.
