- HOME SCHOOLED STUDENTS TAKING THE G.E.D.
§ 22.1-254.2 of the Virginia Code allows home educated students to take the G.E.D. at age 16. This used to be a requirement for home schooling students if they wanted to take courses at the community college for credit. However, that is no longer necessary. If you are interested in having your student take the G.E.D., contact the G.E.D. office in the blue pages of your phone book. You might also want to consult the HEAV website (HEAV’s GED page) for detailed information.
