I guess if you would like to hear my story all over again, you could go to the thread marked "Homeschooling in a different country"...but quick info anyway...
My family is moving to Japan, and under no circumstances can I go to any Japanese school or international school. Online schools are out because of the time difference, and traditional homeschooling (by the parents) is also out because both my parents will be working full-time. That just leaves correspondence classes.
I have another question, if you don't mind. I have found a nationally accreditted program that offers both individual courses or a high school diploma plan. Everything checks out, and my famiy and myself are pretty confident on choosing this program. However, I have one last choice: either enroll in the diploma program, and receive a transcript and diploma from an accreditted school, or take the same amount of courses anyway, just not enroll in the diploma program.
The latter choice really involves stepping over the edge, and hoping there's something underneath you to catch you, if you understand what I'm saying. I would be taking courses that aren't necessarily home-taught, but I would not be receiving a transcipt or diploma. Would this be okay for colleges? I'd rather not enroll in the diploma program so I can have more freedom, but if it messes up my chances...
I know that doing this would later require myself making my own transcript and supplementary materials. How would it look to the administrators that all of my core classes (plus some) are all correspondence courses, but I did not receive a diploma from that organization?
And what about the diploma? It's not necessary, right? I'm sorry if I sound abit panic-y here, but the deadline is soon, and I'm the kind of person who needs to be 100% confident (95% now). I'd appreciate it if someone would just come out and say "go for it!", so I know I won't be making a bad mistake.
btw. I won't just be taking those courses, I'll be self-studying AP courses too. :):):):):):)
