"Homeschool transcripts can be overwhelming if you don't know what you are doing! I am going to share my experience of how I created my son's transcript in 45 minutes!
I have an expert friend who helped me create a transcript for my son. She has been doing this for years and teaches step by step how to gather the information and make this a painless process.
I don't know about you, but I didn't want to spend too much time creating a transcript! I have other things to do and just the idea of it, made me so overwhelmed! Today, I can say "it wasn't that bad!" I think the fact that I used my expert friend's knowledge and advise REALLY helped me!!
I started from scratch...I needed to gather data in regards to credits, grades, classes he took, extracurricular activities and more. The goal was to make a high school transcript that made him look awesome in front of the college admission advisers. (All true, of course)!
My experience today is that creating a high school transcript is EASY, FAST and PAINLESS."

finished the entire ebook, and I LOVED IT!!! Thank you so, so much for all that you are doing. I have needed support like you offer for a number of years now. Most people I know are just putting their kids in high school because the task is overwhelming to them. We have felt that homeschool tK-12th grade is the path for our family. After talking to many parents who are done raising their children who agree that parents can do this, I feel even more resolute in our decision.
Sadly, I've been told more times than I can count that to keep a transcript is not necessary. That the colleges and universities will not look at it. They advised to just submit ACT and SAT test scores. We followed this advice for our first child with results we are not pleased with. You have completely changed my mind on this issue. I feel empowered. Our next child will be armed with a transcript so he can apply for scholarships just like any other applicant. Our eldest son scored a 32 on the ACT and was quite advanced in all of his studies; but without the transcript no one would consider him for scholarships. He had no trouble getting into college, where he is doing great getting top scores. Getting in is not the problem. It is the cost of higher education that is the problem. I am convinced if I had had a coach like you while I educated him through high school, he would have received a scholarship or two. Creating a transcript for our second son has empowered me even more with knowledge that we can do this. We know where we are going.
It has felt like we've been going on to the end all alone. Now I feel supported. I am just nervous to call or email you for help. One of these days I will be brave. Thank you, again. You are one of my heroes.

Each time you and your child interact with a college, the student should send a "Thank You" note by email within a few days of their visit.
