Co-Op Classes on a Transcript

Co-Op Classes on a Transcript
There are lots of ways to put a co-op class on the transcript. Some parents want to highlight that the class was taken in the co-op.  Other parents don't want the information necessarily to be included, they just want to know how to get it  on there the right way.  So let me describe the two ways to do that. Option 1 You can emphasize the class was taken at a co-op.  That is particularly helpful...

Super Senior and High School Transcripts

Super Senior and High School Transcripts
Not all homeschool families have straightforward high school experiences! Some have switched between homeschool and private or public school during the high school years, and as they try to figure out whether their child is ready graduate, sometimes they realize that a 5th year might be preferable or necessary! “We had a very strange year. My son went to a Christian school in 10th grade, and is now a junior, but he may need to have...

THANK YOU from Canada

THANK YOU from Canada
I love our neighbors to the north - and not just because I live in Seattle and can almost see Canada from my house.  And not just because my daughter-in-law is Canadian and calls her mother "Queen Mum."  I love Canadian homeschoolers because they are just like ALL homeschoolers!  They are parents trying hard to provide the best possible education for the children, for college and for life.   Three of my Canadian friends have assured me...

Test Prep on a High School Transcript

Test Prep on a High School Transcript
SAT preparation is a good idea, but you don't want to announce "WE STUDY FOR THE TEST" in big bold letters, so I don't recommend the title "SAT Preparation" for a course title.  Instead, I prefer calling it something else. Many public and private schools will include test prep in their regular English and math courses.  Others will provide separate classes for SAT prep, like you are doing.  It's completely fine to give credit for test...
