Bill Said:

Is a high school diploma from a home schooling program the same as one from an actual high school?

We Answered:

Academically speaking, most diplomas are the same. They are ceremonial pieces of paper acknowledging you met the requirements of that particular institution, whether it be the home, a co-op, private or public school.
Academically speaking, your concern is with your transcript and test scores (if you choose to go to college).
Take a look at your classes. What did you take? If you are concerned if your credits are the same as the public school, then see if you took the same type of classes. You know, 4 credits of English, 3 credits of science, so on and so forth.
Since you said you "picked up where you left off" it sounds as if you kept your original "diploma" plan in mind and continued on with it, so I'm sure if you did that, your transcript will read the same as if you kept on attending your original school.
My point is, it is the content with which you should be concerned. Most people can have a 4.0 by taking modern film viewing (watching movies and eating popcorn) cooking 101 (boiling water) and athletic appreciation (catching the game on tv) Make sure what you choose to study will serve you well for the future.

Stella Said:

How can I replace my high school diploma?

We Answered:

Your old high school is the best place to ask on how you can get another diploma. After all they have all your records.

Note: Some employers might want to verify if you really had finished your schooling in that school. So get it from them.

Good luck with your job hunting!

Travis Said:

What is the difference between a high school diploma and a GED?

We Answered:

A high school diploma basically means you have completed the required courses at an accredited high school. A GED means you took a test demonstrating a basic proficiency in high school level courses. In most cases a GED should be just as good as a diploma. However, if you want to get into a competitive university you should probably contact the admissions office at the school to see if that would hurt your chances. I'm guessing that a GED with a high enough SAT or ACT score would probably be fine.

In the real world, I think there is a bit of a bad stigma attached to a GED. In general, I think many people see that you got a GED and assume you couldn't hack it in a normal high school.

Either way, once you have a job or two and/or start going to college, most people won't really look twice at what you did in high school.

FOR KAY:
I agree that a college degree is important, but having a college degree is no guarantee of a good income just as not having a college degree does not preclude you from earning a good income. I don't have a college degree (although I have about 110 college units) and I should earn close to $50,000 this year. I know there are many college grads that won't earn that much in a year.

Rafael Said:

If the high school diploma is = to the GED then should a schlarshp winner lose their schlrshp 4 getting a GED?

We Answered:

1] should have checked the rules for accepting the scholarship
2] colleges have admission criteria - and they almost always include GRADUATING high school.They can esatablish any criteria they want, as long as it is not discriminating against anything illegal. [ sex, race, religion, ethnicity, etc. ]
3] look up the admission requirements to school involved, and whatever he/she signed to accept the scholarship - or maybe you could appeal to the scholarship committee.
