Graduating your homeschool student can seem very intimidating on the outside. But, with all of the right information and correct steps, your student's homeschool graduation will be perfect! Even if you find yourself in a panic because you realize it's senior year and you haven't really done anything in getting ready for them to graduate or your student has changed their mind and has decided to graduate early, you'll have all you need by reading the steps below.
If you find yourself in a 'change of plans' situation, you haven't planned well, or you just don't have a clue about college admissions and your child is in the midst of senior year, it's very difficult to quickly regroup in order to experience success. "Second best" success is also possible. I have an emergency 12 step plan for families who haven't started preparing for the admission process prior to senior year. Here is a quick checklist to homeschool graduation, a panic plan just for those hopelessly behind parents of seniors.
Hopefully, you haven't waited until Senior year to start thinking about what classes your student should have to graduate. Ideally, during 8th and 9th grades, you'll want to be sure you know your state's homeschool graduation requirements.

Be sure to look over your plan at least once a year to make sure you're on the right track. Below are the number of credits your student will need to graduate.
