Homeschooling in high school can be a little confusing and scary, but it doesn’t have to be. There are so many amazing free resources available online to help you out. One concern I have seen among families that are new to homeschooling their highschoolers is how to assign a credit to their students.
There are so many different homeschool subjects that are very cut and dry, and easy to assign a homeschool credit to. If you have a specific history curriculum you are using, when the book is complete for the year, that usually means that your student has earned one credit in that subject. There are other extra curricular activities, subjects and hobbies that your teens are interested in that may be a little more difficult to figure out. For example, my daughter participated in a Newsies Musical with our local community theater. She had close to 200 hours involved in practices and performances that I was able to give her one full credit in musical theater!
If you are wanting to figure out how to assign high school credit you will love this article from Homeschool Game School that breaks it down in detail for you. You will be surprised to see that it isn’t as hard as you might have thought!
