Default High School IEW questions (or recommend another writing curriculum)

My son really dislikes regular language arts and literary analysis and such, so I was thinking of letting hime skip it and just do writing and grammar. He loves to read and will still keep reading on his own. He has already done a year of a more traditional language arts curriculum and may still do one more.

So I was wondering about IEW. A few questions-

Is it secular (our charter only reimburses secular curriculum).

Can the kids just do it themselves in high school? (We run our high school so the students are independent and I check their work and help when they have trouble- I do not sit down and teach them generally).

Is it literary analysis or other kinds of writing? What kinds of writing?

If it is literature, what is the literature?

Or can anyone else recommend a high school, self-taught writing curriculum that is only writing, preferably technical writing? My son wants to be an engineer so I figure writing that would be more informative style writing would be good.
