NV law allows for students to use accredited schools to gain credits towards a public school diploma. Accredited programs are NOT required in order to homeschool.
However, IF the child is ever planning on going back to a public school, then in high school years you might choose to use an accredited school. While you can continue to homeschool in whatever manner you chose, the public schools will not accept credits that we issue. Instead, they will place the child grade appropriately, but the child would be credit deficient. In order to prevent that you would need to use accredited courses. The credits issued by these schools would transfer right over to the public school. To go this route, you would register to homeschool, then use courses accredited by one of the below agencies.
(a) Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools;
(b) New England Association of Schools and Colleges;
(c) North Central Association of Colleges and Schools;
(d) Northwest Association of Accredited Schools;
(e) Southern Association of Colleges and Schools;
(f) Western Association of Schools and Colleges;
(g) Commission on International and Trans-Regional Accreditation;
There are SO many accredited schools, we can’t list them all. Some are secular, some are religious. Just make sure they’re accredited by one of the above organizations!
