Homeschooled teenager

My daughter is 15 years old and is in the 10th grade, she attends an Performing Arts School and she is studying Musical Theatre. She is starting to hate it there. She also does community theatre and loves it there. She wants to be homeschooled and do community theatre. The problem with that is I am a single parent and I work full time outside of home. My mom lives with us but I don't want to involve her, she has a life of her own. Could this homeschool work without an adult supervising all day long?

It is unlikely to work with no supervising adult. It's just in the nature of teenagers. I think your first step is to ask her WHY she is starting to hate it there. Remember she is almost an adult, she is going to have to do some things in life that she hates, so getting her own way here isn't necessarily the answer that will give her the greatest teaching.
