Hi.
I’ve been homeschooled since first grade and on now am turning 15 next month. My parents want me to get my GED at 16 but I honestly don’t think I can get there in a year. I am not smart enough and struggle with really simple things in school. And it seems so stressful. So , have a friend that went to senior year of high school but was homeschooled the rest of her life. I’m thinking that is what I want to do. I also want to do all these school things like prom, graduation, homecoming, ect. And I figure that if I work really hard I can get a A or B average and that should be enough to get me into a good college.
But I have a few reasons to hesitate about it.
A. I am fairly shy. I don’t have horrible social skills but I dint really have good social skills either.
B. My parent’s wouldn’t approve. My mom doesn’t want me to go to any public school.
C. The school I would want to go to is almost an hour from my house. There is a closet one but I don’t know anyone and it’s so tiny that I would rather just drive the 40 miles every day.

How do I deal with all these problems, and any advice for transitioning from homeschool to public school?

First of all, if you can, talk to your parents and see why they wouldn’t want you in a public school and find a way to address them (possibly pointing out how well your friend is doing in high school). Also, point out your desire to get good grades at the public school in order to get into a good college.

In addition, find out what school district you’re in and, if you’re not in the district of the school you want to go to, look into open enrollment. Different states have different rules about when and how you can do it. In some states, there is only a limited window for when you can do it, if you want to attend that district’s school. Without open enrolling, generally speaking, you’re restricted to the high school in the district where you live.
