Many parents who have homeschooled their children assume they must return to in-person education for their high school age learners. This is not so. In Alberta, learners can receive home education funding until they are 20 years of age on September 1. If a student wishes to receive a high school diploma, they must achieve a minimum of 100 high school credits and complete outcomes for those courses. Many people believe that in order to attend post-secondary a student must have a high school diploma. This also is not necessarily true. Post-secondary institutions generally require specific course completion. Parents and students should discuss the best route to meeting post-secondary requirements with our MOHC high school counsellor as programs vary in requirements.
Home education for high school students is very flexible and can be accomplished in a variety of ways.
