It may vary from state to state, but generally, home schoolers do not have to take GED exams. Most families join an “Umbrella” school which keeps records of grades and attendance of the home schoolers, and awards them an appropriate HS degree according to how they do on an ACT exam. These exams can be taken at any junior college or other accredited facility for a small fee. Both our kids were home schooled from about grade 4, and they had no problems getting accepted into and graduating from Local Junior Colleges and State Universities.
Better check with your local university system. Ga doesn’t accept anyone without a HS diploma (incl GED cert) And passing SAT scores.
Good to know. I have family that have home schooled and considering the kids I would say they would have done poorly in a public school, however, they did great being homeschooled. Of the four I know that were homeschooled each did extremely well on the SAT and all have went to college. One dropped out to go to electrician trade school just like his dad. He’s clearing six figures now but he has the education to be a great businessman as well as a good electrician.
