Your high school student will need to earn credits in order to graduate. There are several methods of calculating credits.  A wonderful resource on how to do that is the HSLDA website.

 If you are homeschooling, but think your student might transfer to a public school before they graduate, make sure you check the credit requirements for that school to verify that your student will be on track.
