Homeschooling Through High School


Welcome to our Homeschooling Through High School pages. HLA started in TN, but now serves a global homeschool community, offering ONE competitive high school diploma to graduates in all fifty states and many foreign countries. HLA grants its own high school diploma. Therefore, our requirements are set by HomeLife Academy and not by an outside state education agency such as the TN Department of Education or any other state department.

On our high school pages, you will find a wealth of information on homeschooling through high school to help you take responsibility for your high school student. But you are NEVER ALONE! Our growing high school staff is experienced and helpful. Call or email anytime.


One Diploma … Multiple Paths of Study


With HLA’s Goal-Based Planning and multiple paths of study, each student can select the path that best fits their unique goals, talents, and passions. Refer to our High School Planning section for detailed information about each path. We also provide you with the planning tools needed to successfully and confidently design a high school plan based on each student’s need.

The uniqueness of HLA is that we put the power in the hands of the parent, allowing YOU to customize a high school transcript that is just right according to your child’s goals. We call this Goal-Based Education. We offer a traditional Diploma and a Certificate of Completion. Our transcripts are as diverse as our students.  We are proud of our graduates in colleges & universities all over the country. We are equally proud of our graduates now in jobs serving people, serving on the missions field, and in homes serving families.

If you are unsure which path is the best fit for your student, a career assessment might be helpful. We also have options for special needs students.  If you need assistance, our counselors are available to help guide you along the way.


Graduation Deadline: HLA’s policy is that the student has until September 15 following their senior year to finish courses, complete reporting requirements, and request the diploma. Any students not finished by the September deadline must re-enroll that year to finish and be eligible to graduate.

Early Graduation Qualifications: Students planning to graduate in less than 4 years or before the age of 17 must have the following to be eligible for early graduation: For counselor approval, please contact Karen.

  • The student must have at least three (3) years of high school as HLA does not offer a 2-year high school option.
  • Meet HLA’s minimum credit requirements.
  • ACT, SAT, or CLT scores submitted to HLA with scores that show readiness to graduate and validate the early graduation.
  • Counselor approval prior to student’s final year.
  • NOTE: Modified Path is not eligible for early graduation.
