Big Things are Coming!

The Good and the Beautiful is creating something truly unique for high school homeschool students: a powerful curriculum and a support system to meet the needs of high school-aged children. With hundreds of thousands of students using our curriculum, we have a huge community of families who are seeking a deep and meaningful education. Greenleaf High School will help bring this community together with optional local, regional, and national opportunities for group learning, leadership, activities, performances, conferences, graduation ceremonies, and more! Students will have the option to take just one class or many classes, or they can fulfill all requirements for an unaccredited Greenleaf High School graduation. Stay tuned as our exciting plans unfold.

Student/Parent Portal

Coming 2021 or later

A parent and student portal will allow students and parents to track grades and transcripts; register for local, state, and national events; join or start local high school groups; access SAT/ACT classes; learn about college preparedness and admissions; and more!

Language Arts

Language Arts

Greenleaf High School will give students the opportunity to take academically strong courses that are packed with meaning and beauty and use only wholesome, profanity-free literature of the highest merit. Prepare your student for college-level literature, writing, and grammar with courses that use a cross-curricular approach to maximize learning (including geography and art) in less time.

Science

Science

Our high school science team, led by the “good and beautiful” vision of Jenny Phillips, is composed of college professors, scientists, editors, filmmakers, illustrators, graphic designers, and reviewers. The self-directed science courses are visually beautiful and dive deep into the wonders of our universe, all while preparing students for college-level academics. High school students are encouraged to take our three core science courses: Earth & Space Science (releasing summer of 2019), Physical Science (releasing summer of 2020), and Biology (releasing summer of 2021).

History

Coming 2020 or later

History

The Good and the Beautiful team is in the process of creating high school history courses titled Journey Through History, which will be released in 2020 or later. To fulfill high school history requirements, students can complete our K–12 family-style history program OR our three Journey Through History courses: Journey Through US History, Journey Through World History, Journey Through US Government (all of which can be self-directed, done with a parent, or completed with a group). Because the project is in the beginning stages and is changing as it is refined, we are not able to release any details at this time. We also hope to eventually release high school history courses on Canadian, UK, Australian, and South African history.

Math

Coming 2020 or later

Math

In the summer of  2021, Greenleaf High School plans on releasing high school math courses. The math courses will include video instruction as you have never seen before for high school math! Not only will our instruction be thorough and solid, but it will be good and beautiful style, giving math meaning and connecting it to real-life. We have no more information on high school math at this time. We are not yet announcing what classes we will be offering, when they will be available, how much they will cost, etc. Standy by! We will keep you updated as we progress.

Electives

Coming 2020 or later

Electives

Greenleaf High School has big plans for elective classes! We are not ready to announce any of them quite yet, but we will keep this page updated as our plans unfold.

Frequently Asked High School Questions

What is Greenleaf High School?

This will be an unaccredited homeschool high school program that can be done completely at home or with local high school groups created by parents. We will provide avenues for people to connect with local groups and we will provide training for parents/mentors to help them create and run the groups. We also plan to offer local, regional, and state events, such as graduation, youth conference, and much more!

Is Greenleaf High School Curriculum similar to The Good and the Beautiful Pre K-8 Curriculum?

Greenleaf High School curriculum is similar to The Good and the Beautiful PreK-8 curriculum in that it integrates only top-quality literature, clean literature; that it connects students to God, nature, and high-character; that is academically solid and thorough. The high school curriculum is all self-directed by the student, but can also be completed in a group setting with parent and student, in school settings, or in co-op settings.

When will Greenleaf High School be available?

Greenleaf High School is in the works (with programs being piloted and curriculum being created) and will be fully launched in the summer of 2020 or later. Right now we have high school language arts available, and we are working on high school science, which will be released in the summer of 2019.

What is behind the name Greenleaf High School?

Because Greenleaf High School is unique from our Pre-K through 8 curriculum and is more rigorous, it needed a different, more mature name. The high school division is named after the American writer and abolitionist John Greenleaf Whittier (1807-1892), who represents important aspects of our curriculum: high-quality literature, high moral character, hard work, a love of nature, and a love of learning. Students study John Greenleaf Whittier and read a biography about him in the High School 1 language arts course.

Can I get more information about the overall program and the Student/Parent Portal?

Greenleaf High School will have a list of requirements for graduation of Greenleaf High School, which is completed at home and/or with a group. Students can participate in this program to whatever degree desired, taking only some classes, or completing the whole program. We currently have a team researching and developing graduation requirements, which should include everything needed to cover your state requirements for unaccredited homeschoolers and for admission to most colleges. The program will be unaccredited, but will give students a target goal and a guide during their high school years that will leave them with a solid, beautiful education and a sense of accomplishment and community. Anticipated features of the student/parent portal include the ability to connect with groups; the ability to keep track of grades, classes, community service, and other items that will be useful for college applications; access to free SAT/ACT classes and videos that help prepare for college admission, information and registration for events, competitions, and opportunities in the local and national communities; and more! Parents will be able to log in to update grades and track student progress. Courses will not be online. Rather, the courses are self-directed or done in a group (which can be teacher-directed). Parents grade all classes (or by teachers if the student is working within a class or group) and will enter the grades in the parent portal. The courses use physical materials, with many of them containing online audio or videos to watch as part of the course. We are exploring the options of offering mentoring services for writing projects and certain subjects.

Can I get more information about the Greenleaf High School communities?

Greenleaf High School communities are intended to help gather students who can study and grow together. We will provide avenues for people to connect with local groups and we will provide training for parents/mentors to help them create and run the groups. We also plan to offer local, regional, and state events, such as graduation, youth conference, and much more!

What curriculum should I use for my high schooler while I am waiting for Greenleaf High School Curriculum to Release?

For the 2019/2020 school year, Greenleaf High School will have language arts, creative writing, and science curriculum. History can be studied using The Good and the Beautiful K–12 family style history program. You will need to use another curriculum for math.
