According to the Texas Homeschool Coalition Association, to home school legally in Texas, you must follow three state law requirements:
1. The instruction must be bona fide (i.e., not a sham).
2. The curriculum must be in visual form (e.g., books, workbooks, video monitor).
3. The curriculum must include the five basic subjects of reading, spelling, grammar, mathematics, and good citizenship.
Also see the Homeschool Legal Defense Association for Texas: Leeper Case which says:
Homeschooling is legal in Texas. Homeschools can operate as private schools provided that they use a written curriculum and teach math, spelling, grammar, reading, and good citizenship. School districts have no authority to approve or disapprove curriculum. Homeschools do not have to register, be tested, or hold any specific qualifications. Texas is a model state in upholding parental rights. At trial, the testimony disclosed that the study of good citizenship is a civics course.

Midland Classical Academy
Kindergarten – Grade 12
MCA is a homeschool/school building model. Students attend two days per week (M/W or T/Th), and parents homeschool on the non-school days. Teachers provide curriculum for parents. Fridays are half-day and optional for Science and enrichment courses. Tuition includes Science on Fridays.
Education at Midland Classical Academy is an active endeavor. Students are neither blank slates to be written upon nor empty vessels to pour facts into, rather they are young people brimming with thoughts and ideas of their own. Learning is a team effort. Students are invited to join tutors in the learning process and this is where exponential growth happens. As we biblically consider God’s world together in the classroom, through sports, and within relationships, the full spectrum of our lives become transformed by divine purpose.

Grace Enrichment Co-op (GECO)
GECO is a home school co-op for families with home schoolers in highschool. GECO provides classes from writing to science and more. GECO is also helpful because it is a community of other home schoolers that have already taken their kids through highschool in home school so if you have any questions about transcripts, credits, or anything else, you can just ask someone at GECO.
