How to Get Homeschool Transcripts Exactly Right. Or else! Well, not really. However, transcripts are important so here is how we do our transcripts.
There isn’t really a magical formula or necessary downloadable form from your state government that you must fill out.
Remember: There’s not ONE right way to homeschool high school…OR complete a transcript.
- Date of Birth
- Social Security (totally optional)
- Contact information (email address, optional)
- Title of your homeschool (optional)
- For most transcripts, break out courses taken by year with name of course, levels, amount of credit, grade.
- Course Summary section (compilation of courses, along with the grade those courses were taken. This is optional.)
- Use sparkle titles where applicable (ie. if your teen covered World History credit using History and Philosophy of the Western World, use that title)
- Service hours
- Graduation date
- SAT or ACT scores
- Keep backup document with course descriptions
- Do some research on college, sports and military requirements by visiting websites, recruiters
- There are transcript programs out there. Use those or make your own.
- Remember to keep your integrity.
