This is the sister site to Easy Peasy All-in-One Homeschool which houses lessons for preschool through 8th.
I’m Lee, the creator of the Easy Peasy homeschool curriculum. I’m the mother of six homeschooled children. I began putting my own children’s assignments online in 2011 as a way to preserve them. I purposefully wrote them in such a way that others would be able to use them as well. In 2012 I started letting others know about it. My hope is that these sites will enable families to homeschool no matter what their life situation.
The high school site is set up similar to the lower school, except that there are no levels. You will choose your course load. There are recommendations on the site for how to do that. I will be working on completing new courses each year until I feel it is complete. You can read the full list of what’s planned on the courses page. If a course is listed as “parent submitted,” then it was something sent to me by an EP user. I haven’t worked through it to check content. Some of them are in 180-day format, some aren’t. Some have tests and answers; some do not. They are just shared as a way to help each other out.

A Year of Thanks
Thanks to everyone who helps EP grow by just loving it and sharing the love.
Thank you to my faithful helpers who are there for me and for everyone using EP day in and day out. This couldn’t happen without you!
Thank you to everyone who has donated to EP this year, those who gave one-time gifts, and those who support our ministry here with monthly donations. You cover EP’s costs and keep this running. Everyone appreciates your giving whether they know it or not!
The Year in Comments…
We may be different than some families, as we use your curriculum over any other, not because it is free, but because it is more thorough, motivating, fun, and ADVANCED than any other big box curriculum we could buy.
I’ve had such great success teaching my kids to read using GC and EP! I am a teacher as well, and have taught probably 100 kids to read, and used many different curricula, but this, by far, is the simplest to use and most effective curricula I have come across.
What a blessing this curriculum has been for my family!
The excellence with which you have put together the daily lessons makes it one of the very best I have ever seen. Educationally, your curriculum is sound and very rigorous, while at the same time attainable for all children.
Easy Peasy All-in-one High School has made what seemed impossible, possible! As a bonus, my kid has aced all of her subjects, something she always struggled with in private school. Thank you!

I had someone write and ask if we still needed money. We have received seven cards in the mail so far, so yes! I added to the bottom of the My EP Assignments page to show how much we’ve received.
I’ve also added a new video that’s eleven minutes long. It’s me talking you through how it works. Hopefully it shows you some more. Over the coming months I’ll make lots of little 30 second videos to show the how-to for each little thing. One thing I wish I had said, the “random” music is random among the choices I uploaded. They are instrumental pieces of varying genres.
Here’s that video.

If you missed it, I had a very interesting interview with the founder of Hire Cause, David Dvorkin, on the 4 professional skills that employers recently ranked as most desirable in employees. But really, I see them as skills everyone should be working on developing. Here’s a video of the interview if you want to check it out.
He discussed why these skills cannot be learned in any classroom and why managers are too busy to teach these skills in any internship. We also discuss why these skills are even more important if your children dream to maybe work for themselves one day.
Lastly, we discuss how the essential key to developing these professional skills is to be surrounded by a supportive community of peers and mentors who are on the same journey. When your children are working alongside others who want to see them succeed and make a difference in their community at the highest level, this is where the magic happens in helping them pursue their dreams.
If your children want to apply to Hire Cause, just a reminder that the deadline for applications is next Friday, 12/7. If your children are interested in a fun way to develop the professional skills they need while positively impacting others in their community, then I hope they’ll consider Hire Cause.
Special Note: You must apply BEFORE December 7th to get the better price for the Hire Cause program. The price of the program is $1,250, but the introductory rate is $500, just for EP! You’ll use the promo code “Easy Peasy” on the last line on the application. If that’s still too much, there are need-based scholarships available.
Join me on Facebook Live today at 1pm EST, as I interview the founder of Hire Cause, David Dvorkin, on the 4 professional skills that employers recently ranked as most desirable in employees.
More than 2,000 businesses were surveyed about these skills. For those of you whose children dream to maybe work for themselves one day, it’s even more important that they know what these skills are and how to develop them.
These are things we could all benefit from learning about, but he will share about his organization as well and his program from teens. All Easy Peasy users get a discounted offer for their program, and he’s got a special gift for those interested in the program who are in attendance at the live event this afternoon.
You can go there now and click on Get Reminder to be notified when it’s time.
I have a couple of resources for high schoolers that I’ve been learning about and will be sharing with you in the coming months. They both have costs; there are just some things we can’t get for free. The first one I’ll be sharing about is a company called Hire Cause.
They mentor kids through a project where they work with a local business to raise money for the charity of their choice.
I think this program could really have a long-term impact on kids who participate and see their project through.
Easy Peasy kids get their lowest prices! You can read about it below and on our site on the new Teen Resources page.
Career Preparation With a “Hire Cause”
What do your children want to be when they grow up? Whatever their dream, there are professional skills, which if they develop, have the power to propel them forward in the direction of their dreams.
The challenge is that these professional skills cannot be learned in any classroom, and overworked managers are too busy to teach them in any internship. That’s why so many interns are getting coffee and stapling papers for stressed out supervisors.
What if there was a fun way to develop the professional skills your children needed to pursue their dreams? What if they had a supportive community of peers and mentors helping them along the way? And what if they could develop these skills through projects that had a positive impact on their community?
If you want your children to do well by doing good and grow their skill sets through giving back to their community, then I recommend they apply to the Hire Cause program here. This career prep program is refreshingly unique and powerful. Financial scholarships are also available (and promised to you if you apply in the next few weeks).
