If I take these courses, do I get high school science credit?

Sue @ 3:46 pm

Hi Tanzania.

That will depend on where you are located. Different states (countries) have different guidelines. Assuming you are located in the U.S., you can use these resources to develop a program of study to receive high school science credit.

Best wishes,

If I do this, will I get a diploma or a G.E.D?

Sue @ 5:20 pm

If you homeschool legally (check the rules in your particular state/country), your child will receive a regular high school diploma & transcript.

Homeschoolers do NOT receive G.E.D’s.

My son is 17 and is suppose to be a senior this year, but I withdrew him because he started having panic attacks. He said he can’t handle all the people at school. I am interested in home schooling him but can’t afford it. Is ther anything out there that can help me help him graduate?

Hello Kee,
It seems you’ve possibly been misinformed! Depending on which state you live in, at 17 years old you are concidered a legal adult (in many situations), with certain legal rights! One of which allows you to drop out of high school by the age of 17! Concider the fact that school officials don’t want you to “drop out” because they inevitably loose state school funding for you (and everyone else who drops out) once you’re off their enrollment! Check the laws in your state to learn your rights. And, yes, there is help for you to further your education without interference from the public school system. Check out one of many homeschool options like “Grace Homeschool Association”. Strive to reach your potential! God Bless you with Peace&Happiness!

Insight is an online high school that also does credit recovery. With insight you can make your own schedule and that is really wonderful. This can also be used as public school at home for an actual diploma.

Hello! I’m in a rut and was hoping you could help me out. I am 16 yrs old. Last year I failed 10th grade in the public school system, so I am doing 10th and llth grade this year by homeschooling to graduate on time. I live in NY, so education laws are really strict, and their aren’t a lot of options that are free. I’m really stuggling with finding free Spanish 3/4 and Chemistry (with lab included) courses on the internet. My spending limit (well, my mom’s spending limit, who is in the RN program at the local college-God bless her soul) is $200. I’m really stressing out b/c I know I can’t get 10th and 11th grade curriculum all for $200. Any advice, or websites with free full courses?

Hi… I am a 10th grade student and just started homeschooling. I was wondering… how do I take these courses? And how will I get credit? I need a lot of information, please help I am new to this, and just want my education.

Sue @ 12:46 pm


Most curriculum courses are not free. Yes, you can definitely purchase 10th and 11th grade Spanish books, along with self-teaching Chemistry books, for under $200. I recommend Amazon.

Here is the page for “High School Chemistry” books:

The book titled, “Chemistry: Concepts and Problems: A Self-Teaching Guide (Wiley Self-Teaching Guides)” looks like a very good choice for high school chemistry.

You can do the same thing for Spanish 3/4. Go to Amazon and search for “high school Spanish textbooks.” There are many excellent choices.

You will need to take responsibility for educating yourself, (and studying each day) if you expect to complete both 10th and 11th grade curriculum in one year. Good luck.

To others who have asked about inexpensive homeschool curriculum, I recommend the “Robinson Curriculum.”   The Robinson Curriculum is a complete K-12 homeschool curriculum for $195. It was developed by a scientist and his six children. I have not personally used the Robinson Curriculum, but I know many others who have, and they highly recommend it.

My son dropped out of high school being of this year. He will be 18 on August 22. He has 9 credits. I want him to get his high school diploma. He would like to be home schooled. But I can’t afford it. Would you help me find the courses that he needs to get his diploma? Are there any courses out there that are free?
