    Default Re: homeschooling

    Hi, Gary! Public schools are not required to accept homeschool or private school credits. Whether they will or not often depends on the opinion of the person you are speaking with at the school, since there are no rules saying what they must or may not accept.

    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 legally homeschooled the same as they would treat any other diploma (although some employers need you to educate them about that). Colleges are usually more interested in a student's entrance exam scores than in how they learned what they know. Harvard and Yale have actively recruited homeschooled students.

    So . . . although it is quite easy to homeschool your student and have them graduate from your family's homeschool, it can be more challenging to mix homeschooling with public school once a student reaches the high school level.

    The best place to learn about homeschooling high school is Let's Homeschool High School.com. There are printable diploma and transcript templates at that site, as well as loads of other helpful information.

    Mom of six . . . current students and homeschool graduates. Enjoying using Time4Learning since 2006!
