The question “should I let my homeschooled teen graduate early” crossed my mind a few years before high school.
My oldest son was the kind of teen that never needed to be reminded of deadlines and pretty well knew that he wanted to do some missionary type of work after graduation and before he pursued a career.
Too, even before taking his high school courses, he would work into the afternoon without my prodding him to do so.
In ninth grade, I could have noted the 8 credits he had because we schooled year around and because he didn’t mind working long hours on his curriculum.
If he kept up that schedule and pace, he could easily have graduated in about 3 years depending on the number of high school credits I had planned.
In other words, I just knew he was on the path to early graduation. Do you know that my plan was for him to graduate early?
