Can I Give High School Credit for Bible Study?

Can I Give High School Credit for Bible Study?



We do Bible as a family everyday. I would guess we spend about 45 minutes a day. Sometimes we simply read the Word and discuss, other times we do a formal study. Plus there is the daily discipleship...Sundays at church, youth group studies, etc... May I give a Bible credit per year to my son, or must he have actually done a formal Bible study with documented work done in a portfolio? Any wisdom? Thanks for any help/thoughts. I'm beginning to feel  as though I'm stumbling towards the finish line, rather than sprinting. It's all about doubting myself at this point...

Bible study

I gave my kids 1/2 credit per year for Bible Study. You can see how it looks on our own homemade transcript. If it were me (hey, it WAS me!) I WOULD put it on the transcript. Because of the amount of time, you could even count it as 1 full credit per year.

You don't have to use a textbook for Bible anymore than you would use a textbook for PE or a music class like piano. In this case, you just count hours, not textbooks. It's still an accurate and legitimate way to calculate credit value.

Some colleges may like to see a course description of it, but it depends on the college. Some secular colleges won't consider a Bible class in their GPA, but some Christian colleges will want to see Bible classes so they know kids are prepared.

Your job is to make a transcript that is honest and true. This Bible class was truly part of your homeschool, so I say give him the credit.

Do you include Bible study in your homeschool? Please share!

I'm so excited to read this because it was a question that came up in my planning this week. DD will most likely go to a Christian college, so I was hoping that it would be appropriate to include Bible classes on her transcript.

    Purpose for Students

    Middle school is the pause between elementary school and high school. Children learn at different rates –not just homeschoolers, ALL kids! The pause, middle school, gives slow or reluctant learners time to catch up before high school. At the same time, it gives quick and academically capable children a chance to continue learning at their level.
