When you homeschool in high school, one of the top things you’re probably thinking about is meeting graduation requirements.

With Abeka Academy, it’s simple!

The plan of study below outlines what to study when. Abeka Academy graduation requirements are listed on the Dashboard Graduation page. If you follow Abeka Academy’s plan of study, you’ll have met those graduation requirements.

If you choose the accredited program, that means you’ll get an official transcript, diploma, and the option to walk in the Abeka Academy graduation ceremony (on the campus of Pensacola Christian College in Pensacola, FL).


What about state-specific graduation requirements? To find out whether your state has them and what they are, you can go to the Homeschool Legal Defense Association.
