Preparing for College

Some families are unsure of whether they'll homeschool their child's entire high school career, so they're especially careful with selecting coursework for those teen years. Since each school principal has the discretion for what high school credits may be granted for homeschool classes, many parents don't want to risk having their child repeat work they've already successfully completed.

Maryland homeschool regulations do not specify how homeschool work can or should be evaluated in order to determine transfer credit. In fact, the regulations are so vague that they only specify that the school may include administration of standardized tests and examinations and interviews with the child.

Families who use online courses as part of their homeschool curriculum should be aware that the Maryland State Department of Education maintains an approved list of virtual coursework. The individual classes on this list have been determined to be equivalent to what is taught in Maryland high schools. Some public school students have the option of taking the classes, rather than attend an in-person class. In addition, transfer students who have taken one of these pre-approved virtual classes generally receive automatic credit for that course.

Ultimately, you'll want to select courses that match your child's learning style and needs, as well as your budget. However, if you're in the market for online courses and you think your child may be heading to public school at some point in time, it might be worth looking at some of the following courses.

Contact the department which administers Maryland Virtual Schools to confirm course approval and with further questions.
