We homeschool in Florida and have for four years now. We have always hs'd just moved here 4 yrs ago. I was concerned about diplomas when we moved here as my oldest was in high school at the time and I have always heard GEDs were for drop-outs and had negative reputation. Not true in Fl. There are many homeschoolers here that register thru their local superintendent and after "graduation" will take the GED test. The colleges around here are aware of that. You basically would attend a community college that transfers to a university (if you pursue a Bachelors) and community colleges look for either diploma OR GED but test scores are the main focus, SAT, ACT or CPT (College Placement Test). If you feel more comfortable with a diploma or thinking of going to college outside of Florida, I would suggest registering with an umbrella school. We are with HomeLife Academy (.com) and very pleased with them. My daughter graduated in 2008 and got a "real" diploma. My next daugther will be graduating in 2011. They even help you plan out the high school years and offer transcript advice. Hope this helps.
