This is my last year of highschool and I've been looking at Community Colleges to go to...to get the basics out of the way...and then transfer to SUNY Morissville.
Well one of my friends is going to Hudson Valley Community and I thought it would be fun to go there with her and take some classes.
So last week my mom, my sister, and I went to HVCC and walked around. We liked what we saw so we went to the Admission Center and asked about enrollment. I guess my mom had planned to enroll me then, so we filled out the forum and under high school I put: "homeschool (NARHS)". The NARHS is a highschool in Maine (stands for North Atlantic Regional Highschool) and I'd be getting my diploma from there. We've paid $600 a year to get that diploma cause they said I'd have no trouble getting into a college with that diploma.
Well, actually HVCC is NOT accepting that diploma? Why? Because I'm homeschooled. Now if I actually lived in Maine...and literally attended that school then HVCC would accept me.
Evidently ALL colleges in New York State has stopped accepting homeschoolers diplomas if they get an out-of-state diploma. But if I go to PA, or VA or CA or any other state....they would accept it!
So I have noooooo idea what's going to happen for college....stupid school district. I guess if worse comes to worse, my mom said we'd move out of state so I could attend a CC in a different state...but still, why does NY have so many stupid regulations?!
The lady at HVCC told me the only way to get in was to get a written letter from the super-attendant at the school disctrict...take the GED....or take the 24 hour credit classes
Now here are the problems....:
With the letter: We didn't send in our Quarter Reports this year because we didn't think we'd need them
The GED: My dad doesn't want me to take the test (no idea why)
The 24 credit: with my work schedual I can't take 24 credits in year...and still be able to work and get to see Sonny
