After much research, I finally found the curriculum that met our homeschool philosophy! My son (14) and I are very happy with it so far. It was a bit confusing at first when trying to plan, but we came up with a good system that is taking him through history chronologically from a Biblical perspective. It is not stong in math, and says so up front, so we supplement with Saxon. He also prefers a different approach to science and is using Apologia. BITM works by awarding points for completed items in a subject area, which are then added together for a high school credit. All four years are in one 3-ring binder at a very reasonable cost (less than $100), but many other books are needed which can either be purchased or borrowed from a library. It also provides the freedom to use other life experiences as points toward credit. I have been very pleased with BITM, and have already purchased "Far Above Rubies" for my girls.
