PWC Homeschoolers:

  • may partially enroll in up to 2 high school classes, including electives (choir, drama, etc.)
  • may participate in Advanced Placement (AP), Preliminary SAT (PSAT) & National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (NMSQT) examinations!
  • are eligible to receive free AP and PSAT testing opportunities to the same extent as PWCPS students.  

Parents will need to contact the counseling department at their child's base high school during the first week of October for PSAT registration information and during the first week of March for AP test registration information.  


NOTE: The Virginia High School League prohibits homeschooled students from participating in school sports programs. HEAV is neutral on this topic but does keep VA homeschoolers informed. In 2015 the govenor vetoed a bill that would have allowed sports access. The override vote was not successful. Read two different viewpoints on the topic in the HEAV Magazine.
