    Default Re: time for learning diploma question

    Hi.

    When you homeschool, YOU (the parent) direct your home school. You decide what your student needs to do to graduate from your home school, you decide what equals a credit in your home school, and you issue a homeschool diploma.

    Time4Learning is not a school. Time4Learning is a curriculum that you can choose to use in your home school. Time4Learning does not award credits or issue diplomas.

    All fifty states allow a parent to issue a homeschool diploma to their own child. Employers are required to treat the homeschool diploma of a student who was homeschooled legally the same as they treat any other diploma (although some employers do not know this, so you must educate them if that issue arises).

    Colleges are more interested in a student's admissions test scores than in how they learned what they know. Many colleges actively recruit homeschoolers.

    Public schools vary in their willingness to accept non-public-school work for credit, however. So, while it is fairly easy to attend and graduate from your family's home school, it can be challenging to try and mix home school with public schooling. If your student goes from public school to homeschool, you are free to count their public school credits in your home school. If your student goes from homeschool to public school, the public school may accept some or all of his homeschool credits; it may offer testing to prove the credits; or it may refuse to accept them. There are no rules saying what non-public-school credits they must or may not accept. So, it's usually a good idea to be sure you want to homeschool all the way through high school before your student begins their homeschool high school years.

    The best place to learn about homeschooling high school is Let's Homeschool High School.com. It has printable transcript and diploma templates, and loads of other resources.
