    Default Possible homeschooling

    We are considering home schooling our daughter for her junior and senior year of high school. I'm hoping someone can recommend an accredited course. Thank you!

    Hi! Time4Learning isn't a school; it's a homeschool curriculum. Schools can be accredited, but a curriculum can't. It sounds like you are wanting to enroll in an online school instead of wanting to homeschool (since you desire accreditation). Many people mistakenly refer to online schools as "homeschooling", because the work is done at home. The location isn't what defines homeschooling, though.

    In homeschooling, the parent directs the student's education. The parent is responsible for following the homeschool laws in the student's state. Each state has its own homeschool laws, and they are all very different. Most of them are designed to be sure the student is actually being taught. They are not designed to dictate how you must teach, and they either do not require specific subjects or the subjects they require are very broad.

    With an online school, a third party directs the student's education. The third party is responsible for following the school laws (not homeschool laws) in the school's state (regardless of where the student lives). The parent has very little leeway when it comes to customizing their child's education, since someone else makes the rules.

    As I said, Time4Learning is a homeschool curriculum . . . not a school.

    You might decide you prefer the flexibility of homeschooling to enrollment in an online school. Homeschooling is also much more affordable than online school tuition. The best place to learn about homeschooling high school is Let's Homeschool High School.com. All fifty states allow a parent to issue a homeschool diploma to their own child.
