Absolutely! You can start homeschooling your teen at any time—even if they have completed a few years of high school. Make sure to get a partial transcript from the public or private high school and add those classes to your student’s final transcript.

Teaching your teen at home can feel overwhelming! Just know that you don’t have to be an experienced teacher for your student to excel. High school is an opportunity for you to support your student and learn alongside them. When you’re not confident in a particular subject, you can always use resources such as local tutors, online courses, homeschool co-ops, or dual enrollment (in which your student earns high school and college credit simultaneously).

Check out this article to answer more of your big questions about homeschooling in high school.

Homeschool parents can either make a transcript for their student or find a subscription service that creates a transcript for them. HSLDA has free high school transcript templates that anyone can download. We also offer a Transcript Service that comes with automatic GPA calculation, professional formatting, and 24/7 online access.

HSLDA recommends that you start creating a transcript for your student when they finish 9th grade (or whenever they finish their first high school classes) and add onto it after each additional year of high school.

As more families choose homeschooling through high school, new sports opportunities are emerging. Here are just a few of the opportunities available each year:

  • National and regional homeschool sports associations—Your teen could compete in a regional or national tournament offered by one of the growing number of organizations providing support for homeschool teams.
  • Homeschool teams—New teams for homeschoolers are being organized throughout the country by homeschool groups and parents. You could connect with local groups, check on Facebook, or do a Google search to locate teams near you. You could also check our group search feature and use the “Sports” filter to quickly see if there are any sports groups in your area.
  • Sports associations—Local sports associations offer both recreational and competitive leagues for a variety of sports. Competitive teams provide the opportunity to play at the local, regional, national, and even international level.
  • Public school teams—You can check to see if your state has equal access laws, which allow homeschooled students to try out for spots on local public school teams.
  • Private school teams—Many local private schools let homeschooled students try out for their teams.
You can check with your local community to see which youth sport opportunities are available in your area!
