  1. I am considering homeschooling my child for the first time. She will be entering 8th grade in September. I have many questions, but to start, does my child have to take the correspondence courses through the public school system in order to be home schooled and receive a diploma at the end of her senior year? I am so confused about what to do and what curriculum I have the freedom upon which to educate my child. Please help! I am desperate.

    1. Hi Wendy!
      Homeschoolers do not need “official public school diplomas” in order to go on to gainful employment, college, or university. Many colleges & universities now have information on their website specifically for registration/entry requirements for homeschoolers. You as a parent/teacher will need to keep records and make up a transcript for your child. Thank goodness there are all sorts of wonderful resources for this! The book The Well-Trained Mind, which is probably at your local library, has fantastic information about this, as well as a full curriculum all the way through Gr. 12 in its pages. Additionally, Lee Binz, The Homescholar, has information on her website (in my blog’s right sidebar) about homeschooling high school and transcripts, and she even offers transcript packages for sale if you wish. Finally, I highly recommend that you seek to attend a local homeschool conference, or think about attending the online Schoolhouse Expo coming up in May (click on the sidebar or you can read about it in my posts). If you have any further questions, feel free to post a question, or even email me if you wish 🙂
