Established Home Schooling Programs

Home schooling is when a parent or an education professional, such as a private tutor, educates a child. Some school districts will provide a high school diploma if the student has proof or a transcript showing the work he or she has completed. There are a number of home schooling programs already well-established for students who hope to complete one. Many of these are completed by mail or via the Internet and are designed with specific state requirements in mind.

Online Schools

There are many accredited online schools that provide the courses students need in order to receive a high school diploma. They also provide students with diplomas upon completion. This alternative works well for students who have access to the computer and can handle constructing their own schedules.


The GED is an alternative to a high school diploma that can typically be earned from home. For more information about GED's and to see if you are eligible, visit the GED section of this Web site. You
