You have been such a help and support to our family. I was a procrastinator in the process of creating my son's high school record. I had all his information readily at my fingertips but didn't have it organized into anything usable, nor had I done much with writing course descriptions. I simply wasn't sure how to start and the task seemed overwhelming so I put it off. I was so nervous that I wouldn't do a good job that I didn't do anything! Eventually, though the time came for me to act.
I appreciate your calm, encouraging approach to the whole process. With guidance from the classes and articles on your website, I was able to get those course descriptions written and personalized to reflect all we'd done in our homeschool. My son's transcript came together as I looked at the examples you had posted, and again was able to personalize it to our school. The activities list, as well, was guided by your examples. And I probably wouldn't have even thought to include a high school reading list in the college applications, if not for your suggestion to do so.
I jumped into serious record-keeping very late in the game, but between you and my very persistent husband (who pushed us to hit the early part of the early action deadlines!), my son submitted all his college applications by the first week in October. He was accepted into the nursing program at all the schools he applied to, and that is due in large part to your help. His grades are good but definitely not perfect. I know that his comprehensive records really highlighted the positive aspects of his education, and showed a holistic picture of him.
Thank you for helping me get this behemoth task done; it felt like the magnum opus of my life, except that we do have another son starting high school next year! Will I really be doing this again?? Round two will be much better though, as I am starting NOW instead of waiting until the last minute!
Once again, THANK YOU!

High school geology and earth science: learn about the rock types, different layers of the atmosphere, throw in some volcanoes and earthquakes…I think we have it covered. And truth be told, you can cover much of this in the lower grades, even into middle school.
But there is one major component in studying geology that is left out of this

Unless your state requires it, you don’t have to teach Health every year of high school. Some states want Health to be a requirement for graduation, but colleges generally don’t care about it much. Some colleges want to see students… Read More
