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...

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...

  • Socialization for Homeschool Students


    I was thinking about socialization because of a conversation I recently had with a non- homeschooler . It is unbelievable that this is still as big a topic as it is surrounding homeschooled children, considering that socialization affects all children, no matter what context they are schooled in. 

    Most parents appreciate a little help and encouragement on their homeschooling journey. My
