    Time4Learning is a curriculum provider -- not a school.

    So you're using T4L as a homeschooling curriculum. You may be confusing T4L with online "public school at home" programs. These virtual schools issue diplomas, because many are part of the public school system--although there are private, online schools that issue diplomas also.

    You should become very knowledgeable about the homeschooling laws in your state:

    HSLDA Homeschooling Laws

    Homeschooling is legal in all 50 states, but each state has its regulations.

    If you're a homeschooling parent, you should make sure your child is taking the required classes, according to your state's homeschooling laws. You issue a diploma when the requirements of your home school have been met. Parents serve as the primary teacher/facilitator, administrator, and school principal. Therefore, issuing a diploma is valid and legal. You can purchase one online or you can create one on your computer. Tip: It looks official if you give your homeschool a name. For example, ours is Spirit of Excellence Christian School. If you don't have a name, I suppose you could use the words "Homeschool Diploma" at the top of the diploma.

    You should also keep a transcript of all the courses your child has taken:

    High School Transcripts

    The following should also be included with your child's transcript:

    1) Letters of recommendations from instructors, Sunday school teachers, boy/girl scout leaders, etc.
    2) Any letters from instructors who your child, ie., piano, soccer, baseball, etc.
    3) Letters of recommendations from part-time job supervisors.
    4) Letters of recommendation from volunteer position supervisors.

    If you need additional information, I'll be happy to respond.
