Sometime a student will request to be withdrawn from public high school and begin homeschooling. If that is the case for you and you can support them, I would encourage you to do it and not look back. You CAN pull your students out anytime you want to. If you want to get their high school grades first you could wait until the grades are released and then pull them. If they aren't getting good grades, then you can pull them out BEFORE they get their grades, and then they won't ever be on their transcript. Just a little high school tip :-)
You will need to have his current transcript, if possible, so that your homeschool transcript includes BOTH schools - homeschool and public school. It doesn't have to be an "official" transcript, but you do need a transcript so you know the exact course title, credit value, and precise grade in each class. You become the academic clearing house for every educational experience.
You can do it, Stacey! And your friends will be able to help you! I do have transcript help available here:

My son was homeschooled through 8th grade. Has been in public school 9-11th grades. now is wanting to come back to finish senior year in homeschool. I am at a bit of a loss on some points. Particularly, do I need to request his current transcripts? how? and starting over again with grade 12…! I know there are many opportunities in our area so I know we can get through it.
