A combination. Try using some college books if you want your child to be ahead. Check out if there are any classes offered by teachers in your area. Is there a homeschool group? Do they offer classes? Who teaches them? Have you filled the state requirements for graduations of elementary, middle, and high school? Etc. But Abeka covers everything to a good degree. Very educational and can be online.
I don't think there is one "best" curriculum. I think what is best is what works best FOR YOUR family. Everyone is different with different strengths and learn styles--that's one of the great things about homeschool--you can adapt learning to your child. I have been homeschooling since 1997 and before that I was a classroom teacher for over 10 years--so I have seen a lot of curriculum programs. Some can be very structured and regimented, some more free. Knowing yourself (as teacher) and your child will help you choose what will work best. For me, I have bought some things and written some myself--that has worked best for us.
