Other methods are just as legitimate, and in some cases even easier! One way your child can earn credit is through dual...

Options After High School Require a Transcript

Options After High School Require a Transcript
After high school, your children gradually transition into adulthood. Some children jump ahead of the line, eagerly seeking college or career. Other kids do best with a slow start option.

The Real Value of Grades on a Transcript

The Real Value of Grades on a Transcript
The Real Value of Grades on a Transcript I always recommend that parents put grades on every class on your homeschool transcript. Either letter grades (A, B, C) or number grades (4.0, 3.5, 3.) will be equally helpful, but grades are important. I do not recommend using Pass or Fail on your transcript. Colleges award scholarships based on the GPA of your child - and the GPA is determined by the grades you provide. Without grades,...
