Hello everyone! I am a sixteen year old girl currently creating a homeschool curriculum based off of my own interests. There is a set structure and plan for each section of the program, and I am confident I will be equally or most likely more educated by my personal system. But I don't know where to begin with the state laws and regulations and how to get my program approved. If anyone has any personal experiences to share or information about this I would be very grateful.

How can I receive high-school credits without the "expected" or "general" curriculum?
Who do I talk to about my program to gain these credits?
What rules do I have to or not have to follow during my homeschooling based on the general curriculum?
Do colleges require any specific material?

Thank you all for the help!
