Graduation Requirements and Homeschool Laws

NEXT Education does not have the power to grant a high school diploma, or any other degree.

However, Ohio law provides an alternate route so that parents of homeschooled students may issue a diploma, and that this diploma is legal for all purposes that you would use any other diploma for.
(If you live in Pennsylvania you need to comply with homeschool laws for Pennsylvania. You are welcome to attend classes at NEXT Education and they should fulfill many of your graduation requirements … and there is a route for graduation for homeschoolers in that state as well but it is very different from Ohio law.)

NEXT Education does not provide legal services, nor do we provide transcript services. Please be aware that you are legally responsible to comply with all laws for your state of residence on a continual basis, and that you must maintain your schooling records carefully so that you are ready to grant a diploma when the time comes.

Please get the legal advice you need about all legal matters, including but not limited to transcripts and graduation requirements and diplomas.

Additionally, we recommend that all NEXT Education customers maintain a membership with HSLDA (Home School Legal Defense Association) or a similar organization that can provide legal advice regarding homeschooling. Good legal advice is the best way to avoid legal trouble.
