Graduation Requirements for Homeschoolers?

Email of the Day:
Im trying to figure out where to find graduating requirements for highschool? Basically what classes she needs and how many credits per class. I believe its 26 credits to graduate?

Answer:
The reason you can’t find this information is that it doesn’t exist.
Homeschoolers in WA are responsible for covering the 11 subjects over the course of their homeschooling, but are not required to match the public highschool credit requirements. (The OSPI does list the public school graduation requirements on their website — google “OSPI WA Highschool graduation” to find links to that, if you’re interested.

We have several great resources for thinking these things through:
