SELF-PACED LEARNING FITS YOUR CHILD’S NEEDS
These video-based, teacher-supported courses allow high school students to learn at their own pace, revisiting challenging topics and accelerating their journey through subjects where they excel. There are no semester deadlines, or any other deadlines imposed by SVHS. One of the main benefits of homeschooling is the ability to customize learning to your child’s strengths and weaknesses. This self-directed approach to independent learning reinforces good study habits while preventing students from falling behind. With our online homeschool learning platform available 24/7, learning can take place whenever and wherever is convenient for your family.
OUR TEACHER-SUPPORTED COURSES REDUCE YOUR WORKLOAD
As a homeschool parent looking for resources to prepare and deliver quality education, you take on the role of teacher, counselor, coach and more. Developing curriculum, planning lessons, grading work and tracking progress for homeschool credits can become a full-time job.
Even the most dedicated and qualified homeschool parent cannot realistically be an expert on every subject they need to teach their kids. Our online courses bridge that gap by connecting your children with credentialed teachers to grade assignments, provide feedback, and answer questions. This gives your child the benefit of an expert evaluating their work beyond just a parent’s perspective and teacher support.
Expert feedback not only enhances comprehension of the material but also builds critical thinking, writing, and communication skills essential for academic and career success. And with teachers available to respond to questions, students gain guidance, confidence and motivation to explore and push themselves further. Our courses provide homeschool learners with the best of both worlds – the one-on-one support of a parent-teacher and the expertise of professionals across diverse subjects.
We develop all courses to meet national standards, guide students through materials, offer individual feedback and assign final grades.
ONLINE LEARNING ANYTIME, ANYWHERE IN A SELF-PACED FORMAT
Life moves fast, often making it hard to homeschool your kids on a rigid schedule. Many parents appreciate our on-demand video-based format that allows flexibility to accommodate your family’s needs. Students can log in to their own online homeschooling program and review lecture videos, complete assignments and take tests at any time of day or night giving parents and families more independence.
Whether you want to start the school day early or need to fit coursework around sports and extracurriculars, our self-paced model gives you freedom over your homeschool timetable. Students can accelerate through subjects they excel at or take more time where they struggle without disrupting your entire curriculum plan.
HOMESCHOOL BENEFITS FOR YOUR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT

How Our High School Homeschool Curriculum Works - Important
It would be useful to understand how homeschooling fits into the legal and regulatory landscape so please read this Guide to the US Legal Framework for Education. Before enrolling a middle school student, you need to be aware that most high schools, including public schools and private schools, will not accept credits earned while the student was enrolled in middle school or elementary school. When the student completes an SVHS course after leaving middle school, the transcripts and credits will usually be accepted by other schools.
High School Diploma From Your Homeschool
If you form your own homeschool and enroll your students on SVHS supplemental courses, SVHS is the school of record for these courses. SVHS will award the official transcript and you can merge that onto your own school transcript. Your own school then awards the high school diploma when the state requirements are met.
HOMESCHOOL HIGH SCHOOL DIPLOMA FROM SVHS
Unless your student is enrolled in the SVHS Diploma Program, SVHS will not be the private school responsible for awarding high school students a high school diploma upon graduation. By default, when you enroll your student, your student is enrolled as a supplemental or credit recovery student at SVHS as a private accredited school.
