Homeschool Activities and Awards List

What do you call the "other stuff" you do in high school?
I want to keep a list of non-academic achievements, BSA stuff, completing lifeguard training, things like that. I don't mind making a form in Word, I just don't know what to call it.
~Christy in Texas


I kept a very simple list on a Word document with a simple title "Activities and Awards List."

I included the list in my Comprehensive Record, and you can see that on page 183-184 of my book "Setting the Records Straight" if you are interested in seeing what such a list might look like .

The list is mostly for your benefit though.  When you fill out college applications, they will ask questions like "What activities were you involved in?" and this list will prompt you to remember what happened over the previous 4 years of high school.

The activity and award list included some details.  You might want to keep track of hours of volunteer work.  That's something I didn't do, and it would have helped me.

You may want to include highlights of the activity list on the transcript.  You can see how I did that at the bottom of my transcript.  My homeschool transcript is also included in my book, and you can also view it.

Blessings,
Lee
Thanks so much, Lee. I have completed my transcript for the 9th grade. Woohoo! and a HUGE thanks to you and your wonderful advice. I direct everyone I know to you.
