Easily Create Professional Homeschool Transcripts!
You may quake in your home educating boots when thinking about homeschool transcripts.
No need to fear, though... with a few tips and some helpful advice, you can easily create your own professional transcripts for your high school students.
What is a homeschool transcript?
A transcript is a summary of all courses, enrichment classes and activities your student completed in high school, to earn their high school diploma.
Your student's transcript is submitted to colleges, during the college application process.
As a professional home educator (you know I am talking about you, right?), you can create your own homeschool transcripts to submit to colleges.
With a little guidance, your document will include everything colleges what to see and it will look professional too!
Your transcript will include:
1. Student Information
At the top of your transcript, you will include your student’s name – last name first, then first name, their full address, gender, social security number, date of birth and phone number.
2. Student Academic History
You will list all your student's courses they took for their high school diploma in this section. List them by year: Freshman, Sophomore, Junior and Senior.
Include the type of class, course title, grade, unit/credit (one unit = one year), and your student's grade point. You will want to include the totals and averages for each year, as well.
3. Summary of Academic Record
In this section, you will put your student's graduation date, attendance for each year, total graduation units/credits and final GPA.
4. Additional Student Information
Post secondary institutions look at a wide array of factors when considering applications.
Most colleges consider academic performance as most important but they also like to see what other activities and community service projects your student has participated in.
Colleges also look at transcripts to determine what kind student your teen will potentially be... colleges like well-rounded students.
Create an area on your document for your student's interests, abilities, achievements and volunteer and extra-curricular activities.
5. Standardized Test Scores
Your transcript should include your high school student's standardized test scores. Record the test name, the year the test was taken, the type of test, and your student's test scores.
6. Previous Secondary Schools Attended
If your homeschool high school student has attended any secondary schools previously, you will want to include that on your homeschooling transcript.
Include the school's name, address and years your child attended.
7. Grading Scales
Include on your transcript, the grading scales used to determine your studentss grades. Typical grading scales are:
||D+ = 1.75
8. Homeschool Officiais
At the bottom of your transcript, you will want to include an area for the signatures and titles of your homeschool officials – that would be you :), and your spouse, if applicable.
If you haven't already done so, assign one person to be the principal... in our home school, my husband takes on that role.
And the other person would be the Teacher/Administator or whatever you officially call yourself! :)
There you have it!
You are on your way to creating professional homeschool transcripts for college applications... easy and hassle-free!
