Setting the Records Straight
5-Star Review by Susan Kilbride
This book is a must-read for those of you who are thinking of homeschooling through high school.
Lee Binz goes through the process of making a homeschool transcript step by step and makes what to some is an overwhelming job seem easy. The book is full of real-life examples of homeschool transcripts that her children and others used to get into the colleges of their choice. She breaks down the whole process of making a transcript into very easy steps.
One of the most important things I realized as I read this book is that I need to start working on my son's high school transcript as soon as he starts high school and not wait until he is almost finished.
On a side note, I found Lee's children's transcripts a bit intimidating, not in the sense of actually writing one, but more of, "Oh my, is my son up to those standards?" Luckily, she also presents examples of other homeschooler's transcripts which made me not feel so inadequate! Plus, it was actually good to see what other homeschoolers who made it into college did during high school to get into college. It's definitely better to find these things out now, before my son is in high school, than to find out later when it would be harder to catch up.
"I found Lee's book very informative and highly recommend it."

Thankfully, as homeschoolers, we can shape and mold our children through this process, even during bursts of hormonally-charged awkwardness.

It is important to provide colleges with the information they need when going through the college admission process. Although the transcript may be the cornerstone of admission, colleges may ask for you to provide homeschool documentation in the way of work samples if they are considering your student for scholarship opportunities. Having your comprehensive records in order is important before you begin the

I love lounging by the pool in the summer. Quite frankly, the relaxation of regular summer breaks from homeschooling really pays off. Are you there yet?
