Hope you don't mind me asking: my son just finished 10th grade and wants to repeat it. To make a long story short he went to Montessori, then public school for 2 years now homeschool. Public school didn't know how to figure his grade was he was held back a year. At 6th grade he was straight A homeschool and we let him "skip" 7th. Now he wants to go back to catch up. Can I put what he did in "9th grade" on his transcript? It will look like 5 years of high school depending on how I write it. Is that ok? ~Eileen on Facebook
The "count backward" idea is great and will work for this situation. I appreciate it. I have just seen your record keeping samples. I'm thankful for your advice Thanks. ~ Eileen
My son did a "five-year plan" high school, also, and we got around it by listing his courses under "Freshman, Sophomore, Junior, Senior," rather than the year (2005-2006). I put the courses under year finished, for the most part. I suppose you could put the early high school credits under freshman year.
Very true, Laura! If you arrange your transcript by subject, instead of by year, you can avoid listing the grade they took each class. Here is an example: http://www.thehomescholar.com/images/stories/pdfs/sample_transcript_by_subject.pdf
Keep in mind that your transcript doesn't have to have "grade levels" on it either. My oldest was accepted at all the colleges she applied to with a transcript organized by subject area. This eliminated that "early high school" grade level altogether.
I am working on my next daughter's transcript the same way. So far, the colleges she's visited have been very happy with the transcript in this format.
