Enrolling Mid-Year

SSHA allows for year-round enrollment. Our “official” academic year begins August 1st of each year and ends July 31st of each year. If you join SSHA mid-year to late-year, any school days completed at another school or while registered as a homeschooled student will roll over to SSHA. 


Transfer Credits

If your student attended another school or were homeschooled prior to joining SSHA, we are happy to place them in the grade level that best fits their academic needs. While we do not require transcripts to review transfer credit for the elementary and middle school years (grades k-8), this is required of incoming students who have already completed grades 9, 10, or 11. SSHA is happy to accept transfer credits. Any fees associated with transfer credit for 9th, 10th, and 11th grade can be found in our fee schedule.

State Requirements

SSHA offers services in most U.S. states and territories. Each state has differing legal requirements for homeschooling. Make sure you check the specific legal requirements of your state.


SSHA serves as your umbrella or covering in FL and enrollment in SSHA meets attendance and other legal requirements in the state.


For the following states, enrollment in SSHA provides many services to help families in their education journey. Some states (AK, ID, TX, OK, MO, IA, IL, IN, MI, NJ, CT) have no specific legal requirements related to home education. Other states (WA, OR, NV, UT, AZ, NM, MT, WY, ND, SD, NE, KS, MN, WI, AR, LA, MS, GA, SC, NC, VA, WV, KY, OH, PA, NY, VT, ME, NH, MA, RI, DE, MD, AL, TN, CO) have varying specific legal requirements that must be met to initiate or maintain homeschooling. In NM, ND, GA, NC, OH, VR, WV, TN, and DC parents wishing to educate their students at home must have a high school diploma. WA requires parents to have completed some college courses. In most states, a letter of intent, approval, or other notification is required for parents to educate their children in the home. This is not required in FL where SSHA serves as your umbrella or covering. Check the specific requirements of your state to ensure that you are in compliance. 


SSHA does not currently serve international students or families in CA, NY, or PA.
