While you do qualify as a home schooler, any form of education does not give you the right to claim student discounts. I'm not sure if they are all the same, but here is a list of "students" that do not qualify for Microsoft academic pricing:
Non-United States residents or educational facilities
K-12 education students and their parents
You might question the last item in that list(like I did), but we called them and found out that they do allow home-schoolers to purchase this edition. I really have no idea what they have that last one on the list for, since I am a K-12 student, but since they said it was ok, I got it.
Actually, since I bought mine, they added this section:
Defined as a home-schooling program which provides primary education to a student or students aged eighteen (18) or under and which is able to provide written proof that it either (i) belongs to a nationally-recognized home-schooling organization, or (ii) is expressly recognized by a local school district as an acceptable alternative to an accredited or state-recognized/approved educational institution.
which makes it quite clear that Home-Schoolers are allowed as long as they are under 18.
