Does the law say that I have to use the Public School Diploma Requirements?

No, it does not. It specifies what subjects you must include, (c) the curriculum includes, but is limited to, the basic instructional areas of reading, writing, mathematics, science, and social studies, and in grades seven through twelve, composition and literature.

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.

If we use credits, must we still teach the required subjects of 59-65-47 each year?

Yes, you the parent-teacher are still required to teach the basic instructional areas of reading, writing, mathematics, science, and social studies, and in grades seven through twelve, composition and literature each year as required under 59-65-47.

What about the GED, should my students take it?

That's a personal decision that you and your student will need to make. However, generally we would have to say NO, you should not have them take the GED. Students that enter college, the military, and specialized programs are often put on various types of probation when they enter as a GED recipient. Unless there's absolutely no way around it, then it would be better not to have them take it. You can get into college with your personal issued homeschool diploma, personal issued transcript and their test scores (SAT, ACT, or the college entrance exam).

Will our children be able to go to college?

More and more colleges are becoming homeschool friendly. They like the studying and learning abilities that homeschool students display. In addition they like their maturity, creativity and independent thinking skills.

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.

Will my child be able to get into the military?

Yes,
HSLDA has many articles on homeschoolers and the military, stop by and take a look at a few.
