Resources to help transition to a traditional school

Abu Dhabi schools generally like to have signed and stamped transcripts in order to enroll students. Based on the experience of our members, it is possible to enroll in the schools after homeschooling if you have a transcript from an online school. In some cases, schools required approval from the Ministry of Education and despite the usual bureaucratic hoops, they were able to obtain it. Below are links for online schools that our members have used and then successfully transferred into an Abu Dhabi school.

In addition, each person should know the regulations governing homeschooling in their own countries.  Note that even countries that do not permit homeschooling within their own borders may still permit homeschooling for families who live abroad.
