I don't know if that is true anon. In some states you can get a diploma from home school organizations. It is the same as any high school diploma. Homeschoolers are not automatically relegated to a GED.

Look @ HSLDA site. They have a lot of useful info regarding homeschool laws, diplomas, homeschoolers and college, etc. You do not have to start high school over. Also homeschooler in many states can issue their own diplomas. I know if we continue to homeschool through high school that I would just make a diploma for our children.

According to the Texas state laws regarding homeschooling, it sounds like you should be fine. Texas considers completion of a non-traditional secondary education to be equivalent to public school graduation and homeschooled students cannot be discriminated against when it comes to Texas colleges. Homeschools can legally operate as private schools in Texas.
