A southeast Wisconsin homeschool graduate applied to enter The Academy, a Waukesha cosmetology school connected with the Paul Mitchell cosmetology schools. The Academy accepted her parent-issued high school diploma, but then asked for her current homeschool “registration.” The family asked HSLDA for help.

Senior Counsel Scott A. Woodruff contacted The Academy. He explained that Wisconsin law requires homeschool families (as well as public and private schools) to send the state the total number of children enrolled in their respective programs as of the third Friday of September, but it does not require any kind of registration.

The family followed up by sending The Academy a copy of their most recent statement of enrollment (a form known as PI-1206). The Academy promptly accepted their daughter into the program.
