Which Umbrella School to choose in FL

Hello,

We live in Florida and my kids are in 2nd and 5th grades. They have always attended either private or public schools but I will be home schooling them starting next year.
I know I want to go with an Umbrella school for the record keeping and for them to have a High School Diploma but I have no idea which umbrella school to choose.
If anybody has any suggestions of a good umbrella school in FL I'd really appreciate.

Thanks!
Marina

I looked through our Florida groups page briefly (http://www.home-school.com/groups/FL.html) and found The Oaks Private School, which offers umbrella school services, I believe for just the registration fee of $50.

If they say you have to pay tuition as well to make use of the umbrella services or organized activites, let me know for future reference.

We are located in Florida and we use www.virtualedu.org, but they only start at middle school. Maybe for your 5th grader for next year. They are accredited and do all the record keeping for us.

you don't need a umbrella school for a diploma, any parent in the USA, can make their own diploma and it's just as legal as any one else's.

But, I understand for the other purposes.
