Frequently Asked Questions:

Can my child go to college?

SCAIHS graduates are enthusiastically admitted to both private and public colleges across the nation. We are contacted regularly by colleges who are impressed by their homeschool students and are seeking more homeschool applicants.

Do homeschoolers receive college scholarships?

The SCAIHS class of 2023 graduates were offered over 225 scholarships for the upcoming 2023-2024 school year, and the reported amount totals more than $1,500,000. Over half of the graduates of the SCAIHS class of 2023 were eligible to receive state scholarships. These scholarships include National Merit Scholarships, National Merit Commended Scholars, Palmetto Fellows, LIFE, HOPE, athletic scholarships, and other institutional and private scholarships.

Can a homeschool student play sports or participate in other extracurricular activities at the public school?

In 2012, the South Carolina legislature passed the Equal Access to Interscholastic Activities Act.  This allows students who have homeschooled for one or more years the opportunity to try out for sports or participate in after-school activities at the school they are zoned to attend.  These activities include but are not limited to athletics, music, speech, and other extracurricular activities. 

How do we know what courses our high school student should take?

Your SCAIHS counselor will guide you through the planning process.  Based on the goals you have set for your student, we will suggest the courses needed to meet those requirements. 

Are there options for my student besides attending a 4-year college?

Yes.   We would encourage you to explore apprenticeship programs, 2-year colleges, and certification programs.  Your SCAIHS counselor can help you find opportunities in these areas.
