FAQ's About Home Schoolers and College

  • How can I successfully teach my own children if I have not been trained? A vast variety of curricula options and resources are available, including curriculum that takes on a step-by-step instructional approach, curriculum types that require intensive parental preparation, DVD or computer-based programs that require parental supervision with very little preparation, and many other styles created to meet your needs as an educator.

  • Will colleges accept my home school transcript and diploma? Yes. Some colleges and universities are friendlier toward home schoolers than others, so some will be easier to work with. In Texas, state colleges are required to accept a home school graduate’s diploma and transcript and to treat a home school graduate just as they would any other applicant. Home school graduates are accepted at most colleges and universities around the nation, and are even recruited by many.

  • How does my graduate receive his diploma? When a student meets the requirements set by his school for graduation, he may receive a diploma.

  • What is required for graduation from home school? Home schools in Texas are private schools for the purpose of compulsory attendance and are not regulated by the state. Therefore, home schools, just as other private schools, set their own graduation standards. There is no minimum age requirement for graduation.

  • How do I provide a transcript for my high school graduate? There are several sources for transcript template kits and/or software that you can simply fill in based on your own grading records. These tools can help you determine what information needs to be included. You should sign your name at the bottom as the administrator of the school and date it. You might even want to get it notarized.
