Home educated students, per Florida law, complete a home education program as designed by the parent or guardian. Once the student completes all needed courses, the parent or guardian is responsible for filling out the Home Education Affidavit, therefore attesting that his/her student has completed high school as a homeschool student.
Homeschool students may choose to fulfill diploma requirements through an "umbrella school" that offers a diploma. Alternatively, some homeschool students may elect to take the General Education Development (GED) test and be awarded a Florida High School diploma from the Florida Department of Education, if the student receives a passing score. Once the test is passed, the Florida Department of Education will send the student a diploma.
Lastly, to earn a diploma, a home education student may opt to re-enroll his/her senior year into the local public high school or into the FLVS Full Time Program. Students re-enrolling into the local public school or transitioning into the FLVS Full Time Program will be held accountable for all district graduation requirements.
In order to obtain a diploma from FLVS, you will need to enroll in the FLVS Full Time public school program. You will no longer be considered a homeschool student when you register with FLVS Full Time. Students can also return to their zoned high school their senior year to obtain a diploma.
