No, New York does not permit online for-profit schools to operate there. You can homeschool IF your parents are willing to take on the legal responsibility for your education. New york is one of the more difficult states to homeschool in but you can do it. Here are NY's laws and other information: Perhaps if you do all the research you can 'present' it to mom and show her that homeschooling would not be the challenge she is expecting. There are a lot of myths around homeschooling. But if she doesn't want to, then she doesn't want to and you have to accept that and find another answer. You didn't say anything about money but if that isn't a problem, you can attend online private schools or an online public high school program. Your parents just have to pay tuition. There are also correspondence schools. However, do your homework on any you are interested in. Anyone can set up a 'school'; there is very little regulation of private schools and even less of religious schools. Take a look at: You should also see a physician to address your emotional problems. Sooner or later you are going to have to deal with the consequences of your inability to attend school or other activities. It's always better to catch and treat these things early on. You will be much happier. and when you are comparing schools you should also include your public school so you have a fair comparison. It may turn out the public school is your best option. You want THE best education you can have. And work with Mom, she knows you and has your best interest at heart.

If you are a danger to yourself, get off Yahoo Answers, and call 911. Have you told your mom that you are suicidal and can't stand being in school any longer? Are there any other adults in your life you could talk to about what is going on? You should be under the care of a child psychiatrist. One of the most affordable "regionally accredited" high schools is American School. One of my daughters attends this school (her choice).
