High School Homeschooling Planner {Printable}

As you head into the high school years, there seems to be a sense of impending overwhelm. What subjects should you include in these years? What if you get to grade 11 and realize you should have done a prerequisite the year before? Are you required to complete anything specific?

High School Homeschooling Planner


As I prepared to tackle the overall plan for the high school years with my oldest, I decided to make a planner to help me keep track of everything and make it run more smoothly.

Included is a list of the provincial requirements that public school students are required to earn their provincial diplomas. I know that most of the time homeschoolers are ineligible to receive government-official diplomas but I thought it was a good place to start for a general idea of what to include in your child’s high school studies.

From there, I made a “big picture” page – a way to kind of visualize all high school years at once, where to place what subjects and create a general outline for the next 4 years. That way you can see what gaps you have to fill. This list offers typical core subjects: Math, English, Science, French, History/Geography, and Phys.Ed, plus enough space for 3 electives a year and volunteer plans.

After that, each year is on its own page, allowing you to pick courses, and write down descriptions or whatever you think would be helpful (like where to buy it or where to sign up for it, etc). This could be used as a basic course outline for transcript notes, too as needed.

The last page is a volunteer hours record sheet – so if your high school student puts in some community hours, you can keep them accountable for how much time they participate.

The goal of these planning sheets is to help you be able to clearly see what your goals and plans are for the next 4 years, in a simple format.

  1. I love your page, it’s been a huge help. My daughter is going into high school next year and I’m at lost. I’m not sure how it works, any help? Thank you

    1. It will depend a little based on where you live. The first step is to decide if you need or want to complete requirements for an official government issued provincial diploma. Then you have to decide what you are going to learn based on that decision.

  2. I just want to say that I very much appreciate this Canadian Homeschooling resource! We are deciding whether or not to send our oldest to high school, as homeschooling high school definitely feels overwhelming! After reading this page I do feel reassured that I could possibly do this successfully.
    Thank you so much for taking the time to share your homeschooling knowledge with the rest of us Canadians!

  3. How would you record life skills such as self-reliance, problem solving, risk assessment, information gathering, critical thinking, and the like? I understand that some people have to report to the government in the same structure as the public schools, but I homeschool because I find their interpretation of education a bit too narrow.

    1. That’s a great question. Honestly, I think every family records different things differently (you know – as we’ve discovered with all aspects of homeschooling!) I think a question I might ask is “Do we *need* to have a record of these skills or is learning them enough?” You might decide that it’s not necessary to have a record of them on paper. Or you can come up with a subject label such as “Learning Strategies” or such and keep track of things taught that don’t fit the traditional subjects.
