Hi, I am interested in homeschooling my 9th grader, and I am considering abeka, but I have questions. She is in High School right now but I want to withdraw her from school at the end of this semester and have her homeschool for the next semester but I don't want her to lose any of her credits from this current semester in case she goes back to public School in the next year or so. If I get her abeka for next Semester:

DOES SHE NEEDS TO GET THE SAME CLASES SHE HAS RIGHT NOW IN ORDER TO GET THE FULL CREDIT AT THE END OF YEAR?

AND HOW DO WE GRADE HER WORK?

I AM NEW AT THIS IS YOU CAN HELP ME WITH THIS TWO QUESTIONS I WOULD GLADLY APPRECIATE IT.
THANK YOU
