Things You Need to Know When Graduating Your Homeschooler

I still cannot believe that I just wrote that, and yet — my oldest will be graduating this year! Since I have to go through the entire process of graduating him, I thought I would share that journey with you all in a series of posts  called “Graduating Your Homeschooler” coming up in March on the blog.


During each week in March, I will be tackling subjects that surround graduating your teenager. I have had all of these questions myself and have done research, so I am quite excited to share with you in hopes it will help alleviate any stress you may be feeling about going through the graduation process.

Graduating Your Homeschooler

Topics that will be covered are:

  • What Do I Need to Prepare for Graduation: I will be discussing things like credits, graduation requirements, knowing if your child is ready for graduation and more.
  • Creating a High School Transcript: A lot of people stress over this one, however, it is really very simple to create if you have the right records from grades past.
  • The High School Diploma: The diploma is one that stumps a lot of parents as they are really not sure what is accepted and what is not when it comes to that. I will show you different ways to provide your student with an authentic looking diploma that will be accepted by any work place and any college or vocational school.
  • Electives: What electives can I include and what can be used as an elective. There are SO many day to day tasks that can be transferred as electives for your child’s graduation report and transcript. I will show you what you can use and how to describe them.
  • Preparing for a Graduation Party: I get asked all the time how my son is going to graduate. In this post, I am going to share my tips and tricks and what we plan on doing for Robert in May.

I look forward to sharing all of these posts with you starting on March 1st, so be sure and head back here on Friday for the first post!

    I will be very interested in seeing these posts. My oldest is a 9th grader this year and I want to make sure we do everything right to ensure she doesn’t have difficulty going to college.
