Graduation Credits

High School Graduation Requirements

At MGA, and at any College-Style School® (CSS), the student’s education is a partnership between school and family. The state of Texas legally recognizes MGA families as homeschoolers, and our families enjoy the freedoms associated with that status.  MGA families are free to make educational decisions for their children without state testing, state reporting, or state mandates for curricula, class hours, or other requirements.

MGA’s role is to provide course content that meets state or national standards.  The content of all of our Core Courses in Logic and Rhetoric levels is on par with with full-time public and private schools.
