Online Homeschool for High School

When it comes to your child’s education, you do not want to use the trial and error approach.

Using a trusted, Christian-based homeschool curriculum gives you the freedom and support you need to make your child’s home school experience as success.

High School Programs

Being a high school homeschool student doesn’t have to mean isolation.

You can have as little or as much social interaction as you desire by connecting with other home school programs in your community, state, and nationwide.

Join a homeschool co-op or get connected at a home school convention that is held in your area.

Required High School Courses

Your required high school courses are going to depend on which state you live in. If you don’t mind doing some leg work, you can contact your state University System to find out what is required.

Another option is to find an accredited home school curriculum like Abeka. Using an accredited program will ensure you meet the state home school requirements as well as college admission requirements.

You will receive a diploma and the ability to obtain transcripts that are needed to apply to college.
