School Supply

It may be hard to believe, but if the high school years are in sight for your child(ren), it's time to start planning.  There are many options out there for your home school student to explore.  The resources on this page should help you prepare for and navigate through the middle school and high school years.

The only way to receive an Iowa high school diploma is to complete all requirements through an approved accredited school.

Colleges and trade schools only require a transcript, not a diploma.

Homeschool Graduation Requirements in Iowa

Homeschoolers are not subject to the same requirements for receiving a diploma as traditionally schooled students. The state of Iowa does not mandate requirements for graduation.  Parents are free to set their own graduation requirements, create their own transcripts, and certify their own homeschool high school diploma.

It is important to keep in mind that college and universities have certain requirements for students who wish to apply.  Be sure you are fully aware of those requirements to ensure your child meets both the credit hours as well as specific courses necessary to apply.
