Please realize that as homeschooler you do not have to choose to follow the SC Public School Diploma Requirements.You may decide to teach only the required core subjects in 59-65-47 (plus the extras you already add to your homeschooling plan) or you may consult several colleges to aid you in formulating your requirements for high school graduation. Each college has it's own required subjects and standards, it is our job as homeschooling parents to research with our children the requirements for the college(s) that they want to attend.
Parents should prepare a high school transcript, award a diploma and specify an actual high school graduation date.
Have your child(ren) take the PSAT, SAT and/or ACT. These test can be taken more than one time. Colleges use the SAT, ACT and sometimes their own entrance exam.
High school students can enroll in a technical college and obtain college and high school credit for the courses (some colleges may not issue credit for the college credited courses if they were used for high school credit).
Many colleges offer nontraditional programs for off-campus study (or to us homeschoolers this would be college at home). Check into distance learning courses, electronic media, and CLEP testing.
Apprenticeship programs is another option for the homeschooler.
