Cosmetology for High School Credit

Cosmetology for High School Credit

Sometimes we forget how many homeschool high school course options there are for our kids to choose from. Are you teaching an occupational education class in your homeschool? If your child loves to spend time painting nails or trying out all the hairstyles on Pinterest and just enjoys all things having to do with beauty, why not consider cosmetology for high school credit?

Occupational Education: Cosmetology

You can call an elective class “Occupational Education: Cosmetology.” Some public high schools offer classes such as this and you can, too! We have unlimited options of electives. While public schools are limited by the interests and abilities of teachers, we can create any elective class that interests our child. Yup! Even a class in beauty skills!

Consider putting together different "unit studies" for areas that your child is interested in. You could include units such as massage, hair care, nail art, and makeup. You can pick up books about each subject at your local library or look up the information you need online. No textbook is needed. Just count the hours spent on everything cosmetology to determine credit and include it on your homemade transcript. Once you have about 120-180 hours of beauty-school style training, you can call it a credit.

Class Titles and Course Descriptions

While we don't have to restrict ourselves to the classes public schools offer, they can give us some ideas. Cosmetology classes are offered in public high schools. Here is an example: Cosmetology Education in High School.

Another example is Chantilly Academy Governor's STEM Academy Excellence in Career & Technical Education. They have a class at their high school with a marvelous description that you can modify to use for your own homeschool. Course Description for Cosmetology

With delight directed learning, it can be even more important to create a course description to include with your transcript. You can also use public school course outlines to help you put together your cosmetology course description. I have a free training class on course descriptions that you can take to learn more about how to do that: Homeschool Records That Open Doors.

Our unlimited options of delight directed learning can be a great way to include more high school credits on your transcript. That way a child who isn't bookish can graduate high school and still preserve their love of learning.

Do you know anyone who has taken a high school cosmetology course or other occupational education class? Please share and encourage others!
