It's a phenomenal program for all ages & grades. Yes, they will supply you with all of the materials you will need, textbooks included. The one thing you may have to do is go to your local library, and check out books for different reports. They will even supply you with a computer, or laptop and printer. They are a state accredited program, so they are mandated and regulated just like any other public school. You will have teachers, and classwork time, which is when you sign into a site, and interact with your teacher and other students. We did this program with our son for 2 years. And the only reasons we chose to go back to a "brick and mortar" school, is because we had his health problems under control, and he needed the socialization skills. Truly, it is a wonderful program for kids who struggle and need more one-on-one attention, or for kids that excel. They're not held back by day to day group classrooms. I highly recommended that you check out their website, or call them, and they will send you an informational packet.
