I have a slightly off-topic question regarding whether Rosetta Stone and/or Power Glide are accepted as Foreign Language high school credits in preparation for most state colleges. Anyone have any information on that? We started Rosetta Stone Spanish, but were derailed with rumors that it was not acceptable as credit.
Thanks ~ Barb
Yes, it's true that there are some colleges that do not accept Rosetta Stone. It's important to check with each college.
UW-Madison has an explicit statement on its website saying it does NOT accept Rosetta Stone: https://www.admissions.wisc.edu/apply/freshman/requirements.php
Thanks so much for this info. I did call Rosetta Stone out of curiousity, because I was just inches away from spending a big chunk of money on the program. The sales rep said that all 5 courses for the Italian program would equate 2 years of high school credit. I've never used it so I'm not sure how intensive even one leg of the program is. Good to know, though!
A homeschool transcript is part of your child's educational background that you will have to provide when you help them go through the college admissions process. When you homeschool, part of what you are signing up for is documenting your child's educational experiences. It's all part and parcel of the whole genie gig, as they say on Aladdin.
One mom jokingly told me that her son's spirit animal was a sloth. We had a good giggle over that one, because I remember what it's like to try to motivate homeschool teens . And frankly, misery loves company!
Misery also craves solutions. That's where this book comes in.

In public schools, they give high school credit for being bilingual and you can do it, too.
