University of Mississippi High School At Homewww.outreach.olemiss.edu/hsathome
The UM-Independent Study High School provides opportunities for students in various circumstances to meet their educational needs. Students come to us because they: • are unable to attend a local school because they live in isolated areas • are in countries outside the United States and are without access to an accredited high school diploma program from a school in the United States • have dropped out of school but want to continue their education and earn a high school diploma • have difficulty coping with time and place restrictions of a classroom and want to proceed at their own pace • cannot attend a local school because they are homebound • want to accelerate their high school progress • need basic instruction to improve their skills • want a quality education in a home-school setting
UM-Independent Study High School offers these advantages:
• core courses in all major curriculum areas • special or low-enrollment courses • courses needed for college entrance • elective courses to meet the needs of students with a wide range of interests • basic courses for special-needs students • advanced courses for accelerated students
If your child is a homeschooling veteran, s/he will have no problem at all with using the UM’s ISH program to its fullest. The program is tailor-made for homeschoolers. If your child has recently come to homeschooling from a public school environment, a little period of adjustment may be necessary, to enable him/her to realize the realities of methodical self-discipline that such a program requires.
