Homeschooling is a very great oppurtunity if you take advantage of it. I've been homeschooled for almost 2 months now and I LOVE ut IT! I won't say I hated public school but do to the fact that I was having trouble in school I began to hate it. I know before my mom withdrew me from public school I obtained my transcript. Trust me you will need it in the future. I also requested my standaredized test scores. You'll need them to determine the level of classes your going to take. You should also research the diffrent types of homeschooling program. There are several types of homeschooling programs. The homeschooling program I'm a stundent of is Allied National High School. My homeschooling program is virtual. All my work is done via internet. However, I can communicate with my teachers Monday through Friday. Also when researching homeschooling programs, make sure they're accredited in your state. I hope this will help.
Why? When you only have a year left.
This website seems really informative...good luck
As the Valedictorian of my home school, I can tell you that this is a BAD idea. Whether you want to go to college, or not, switching to home-schooling at this point in your academic career will be VERY detrimental to your future.
you can go on the computer home school they give you work then you do it, but all of it is not easy.
Having a goal to be home schooled, is an interesting situation. It sounds like much more is under the surface than what you mention in your question.
At 16, you can drop out of public education in most states--with parent permission; thus, the process of home schooling itself is not difficult.
What is difficult is actually schooling yourself at home, which there are many programs for purchase available on-line.
Well on thing is for sure, you cannot homeschool "yourself". You need a parent or guardian to homeschool you.
Search around on the internet for information. Make sure your parent is very willing to spend time with you teaching you, though. But if they are willing, go for it! Homeschooled children tend to do better than publicly and privately schooled children. Also, it offers a more comfortable setting.
You might also be interested in taking a few online courses in addition to being homeschool (for AP courses, etc), which are also very interesting. (Note: tuition can be costly for online courses).
First you need to find out the home school requirements for your state. http://www.hslda.org/laws/default.asp?st...
Next you and your Mom need to research and find a good curriculum. Some states have free curriculum. Most curriculum's cost between $200 and $600. You can easily find a reputable curriculum online. Additionally, someone at your age can probably enroll in a local junior college for some of your classes.
One other thing is I would check with the institution you plan to attend after High School and see if they have any requirements for Home Schoolers or whether you switch to home schooling gat this point would reclude you from attending.
See if their is a Community College that you can go to, earn your degree and still get time in college. Another way you could go about doing this is to talk to your principal about Independent study. I don't see why you want to quit, you've dealt with it for more than half your life, why be home schooled now?
Check at a local Community College talk to the admissions office. You could also try talking to your Counselors about Graduating Early, if you have enough credits you could do that, then go to college.
How about a vitural public school?
Connections Academy is a on line Free public school.
It would be worth you and your parents checking out. There are also a lot of other vitural schools out there.
Don't believe the naysayers. You CAN homeschool yourself!
I highly recomend that you get a copy of Grace Llewellyn's book, The Teenage Liberation Handbook: How to Quit School and Get a Real Life and Education
Llewellyn outlines why you might be better off not attending school, and the legal steps you'd need to take. (I wish I'd read this book back when I was in High School!)
Do you mean can you do the learning on your own? Definitely. But being under 18, your parents may have to sign things and once you're 18 and your parents aren't signing stuff, then you wouldn't technically be homeschooling anymore (unless you sign yourself up with some sort of online program or something).
Well, I was homeschooled at 16, but my mom approved of it.
Your mother will need to sign papers for you.
If at all possible, I would recommend the American School of Correspondence. It is accredited, and it is very good.
You will get an accredited, college accepted diploma through them. I only needed four and a half credits to graduate.
People need to accept that homeschoolers do get socialization.
Also, colleges seek homeschoolers out because many of them get very good grades and are very disciplined. Columbia University conducted a study that showed that homeschoolers, on average, scored higher on college entrance exams.
I would recommend setting up an achievable daily, weekly, and monthly schedule. Stick to it. If you have to, have your mom set it up for you.
Check www.hsdla.org for your state's homeschooling laws.
If you have any questions, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
can you just take the GED in your state...in Indiana you can take it at 16 if you can take it in your state i would just go with that and then move forward with the rest of your education....that crap about colleges looking at GED as lower than diploma's is just crap a GED will get you into most schools unless your lookinf at harvard or something like that.
