Welcome Homeschoolers!

Moore County Schools welcomes homeschoolers of high school age to participate in a variety of classes and opportunities offered on our campuses through its “blend+ed” program. 

Moore County Schools consists of 24 schools that provide individualized, rigorous instruction for all students. We believe that a strong homeschool-to-public school partnership positively impacts the entire Moore County community of learners. Moore County Schools is working to strengthen this partnership and we invite you to join us on this journey.

Athletics

The athletic programs of Moore County Schools exist to provide positive and productive school experiences while teaching valuable life lessons, including the importance of hard work, dedication, ethics and teamwork.

Students can choose from a variety of options, including:

  • 100% virtual learning – all classes are taken online, from anywhere, through any combination of the North Carolina Virtual Public School (NCVPS), Sandhills Community College online, or Moore County Schools online courses.
  • Blended schedule – students can build a course load that meets their needs, using a mix of online classes and traditional or homeschool classes.
  • Homeschool supplement – credits from licensed N.C. homeschools transfer seamlessly to allow students to enroll in a minimum of two courses (either online or traditional) to supplement the classes they have already taken.

Is blend+ed right for you?

If you are homeschooled and in need of more support with challenging high school curriculum, or if you would benefit from a blended schedule that provides flexibility to meet your needs, Moore County Schools’ “blend+ed” program is for you.

  • Would you like access to award-winning athletics, arts, clubs, trade programs, and other extracurriculars?
  • Is it sometimes difficult for you to attend a high school that meets daily on a regular schedule?  For example, are you are involved in competitive sports or have a chronic illness that keeps you homebound?
  • Are you self-motivated, committed to academic success, and able to monitor your own progress?
  • Do you have the proper support at home to help you be successful?
