If you haven’t tried a Law Shelf course yet, you should know that they are free for high school credit! If you pay for and pass the final, your teen earns NCCRS college credit. They are allowing HS4CC members to stack our HS4CC code on top of their 5 or 10-course bundles!
Law Shelf is evaluated for college credit by NCCRS. In general, NCCRS is not as well accepted as other forms of college credit, and so we recommend looking at this as high school credit with the potential for college credit if your teen attends one of their partner colleges.
They are offering single courses, 5-course bundles, and 10-course bundle. The rate is $20 per credit. If you make a purchase, stack our code HS4CC with that and you’ll get a course for free! If you decide not to pursue the college credit option, there is no cost at all.
In every state, the homeschool administrator or parent awards the high school credit and the future college determines if the college credits are accepted and how they apply.
In my opinion, your student can work on these courses 1 at a time in the sequence given and complete the entire bundle over the course of 1 school year. Motivated students may move more quickly.
About this Bundle
I’ve carefully reviewed every Law Shelf course and selected 10 courses that work perfectly together to give your teen a solid foundation in skills needed to operate their own successful business. For some students, this bundle may also serve as a springboard to an interest in business law or accounting. You can, of course, mix and match any of their courses to create your own bundles too.
