I did it for 2.5 years for highschool. But I used FL Virtual School Online which has cert teachers which grade the child for the state, a private school for a Geometry class, and a public school for a Physics class, which was lousy. Then I used the community college to get some college out of the way. I ordered some courses and created three of my own as I know those subjects and combined one with The Teaching Company's courses. One being art since I've taught my profession at the college level. I used the SAT online course.
There's a lot of homeschooling, here in Florida, because the schools stink. They rank around 35th in the nation. It's a very homeschool-friendly state. I know a lot of homeschoolers as well.
