can high schoolers graduate early if all the requirements ? The teen is looking to graduate in 3 years instead of 4 and very eager and willing to do the work in 3 years.

Yes, a teen can absolutely graduate early if graduation requirements are met. There are no specific graduation or credit requirements for homeschooled students in Maine! Beyond complying with the homeschool statute, families are free to determine the best overall course of study for their student during the high school years. Families will determine when the course of study has been completed, create a transcript and grant a diploma. However, if college is (or could be) part of future plans, it will be important to look at what specific college admissions requirements are for any colleges that may be of interest. That way, a child's high school course work can be tailored to meet those requirements. The guides at the link below also provide some general course recommendations.
