Myth #7: Homeschoolers Miss Out!
Many people believe that homeschooling their child will make the student miss out on important rites of passage, such as prom or graduation. However, just about every homeschool support group in the country offers these same events for their members. There are group graduations, complete with a valedictorian or elected speaker, gowns and caps and diplomas (issued by the student's own homeschool of course). There are also homeschool proms, which offer the opportunity to dress up, rent a limo and go to the dance as a group, without all the pressure often involved in going to a school prom with a date.
