: I knew a family when I still lived in MD, that home schooled their kids. The teenage son had fairly long hair. PA has an online cyber school, I believe it's aimed at high schoolers. You use your computer to attend school online, and you receive your diploma from the cyber school. It is free to PA residents, and there's no dress code. Wear your hair as long as you want, dress in your PJ's if you feel like it. Many home school children use the cyber school, as it can be harder for some parents to teach at the HS level.
Yes, the online school probably would be harder for the parents depending of course on the parents' education level. I attended a computer related school which was mostly online course based. We just watched videos and did labs online. Then we had some in house lab work we had to do in front of the instructors. I did very well in that school and received 5 Microsoft certifications. Our final exams were all computer based. By the way when I started that school I had been out of school for many years and I was 43 years old. I was wondering what I was going to do when the instructor handed me the first book which was 3 inches thick! The school lasted a whole year! I kept asking myself what I had gotten myself into! Well, I made it! It was worth it.
