Just because you have been turned away from public school (for whatever reason) doesn’t mean you can’t continue your education. Not only can you finish high school, but you can also get into college. If you really dedicate yourself, you can probably get a college scholarship.
That may seem a little far-fetched to you, but you should know that anything is possible through homeschooling. The first thing you have to do after being expelled from school is to request your school records. This will let you know what you have accomplished and what you still need to do. What you need to accomplished will be determined by what kind of job you want and what kind of college you hope to go to.
Basically, to graduate homeschool, you need to determine that you have accomplished enough education-wise to do well in a job or to get into college. Typically that would at least look similar to a public school course of study that is as follows:
Four English/Grammar courses: Grammar, Writing mechanics, American Literature, British Literature, Screenwriting, Poetry, etc.
Three to Four Math Courses: Algebra, Geometry, Algebra 2, Trigonometry, Pre Calculus, Calculus, Statistics, Personal finance, etc.
Three to Four Science Courses: Biology, Chemistry, Environmental Science, Botany, Astronomy, etc.
Three to Four History Courses: Government, American History, European History, Geography, Civics, etc.
Two Foreign Language Courses: Two years of the same language such as Spanish, French, Japanese, Chinese, and possibly even sign language
Electives: This is where you have the most leeway to follow you passions and engage your creativity. Focus heavily on whatever you like to do, be it music, art, dance, or computers.
(The more you accomplish, the better chance you will have of getting into a good college.)
To make sure you have fulfilled all of these requirements, you can make a spreadsheet (see illustration) and then color in each course as it is completed. Completing a course many mean studying as subject for 120 hours or more, completing a textbook, or perhaps participating in an internship in the subject matter for at least 120 hours. You can be creative with your coursework.
As you get close to completing your coursework, you need to start shopping for or jobs. Do not sell yourself as a dropout or someone who was expelled. If you have been dilligent about doing independant study, then you are a homeschooler. When you complete the program, you an practically write your own diploma, and present yourself to colleges as an indepentant scholar who has worked hard and is deserving of a good job or a college education.
Note: Age is important in this scenario. This is going to work best for someone in their teens. A 24 year old cannot present themselves as a recent homeschool graduate and have anyone take them seriously. In this case it is better to get a GED and attend a Community College.
