Homeschool High School Transcript

Homeschool transcript 5 easy steps

It’s time to apply to college and now my student needs a high school transcript.  Where do I begin?  How do I remember what courses my student studied, much less the grade they earned?  What do I need to include on a transcript?  HELP!

Does this sound familiar?

This same child was driving her crazy with lack of a job, but big plans for summer travel. Sound familiar? Don't our kids know that money doesn't grow on trees??? That if you don't graduate college on time it costs a lot of money (not to mention time)?? And who is paying for all this travel you want to do???

Children can be frustrating. And embarrassing. Why don't they listen to us?

Toddlers? Pre-schoolers? So many children? High school? But, the answer has been very similar in all the situations.
