What About College - What About Transcripts
Homeschoolers are often asked "What about college?" And "What about
transcripts?" Let me explain how it works.
Homeschoolers are sought after by colleges, in demand because of their
academic preparation and maturity. Many colleges attend homeschool
conventions, hoping to attract these desired applicants. I see this every
day in my work with homeschoolers, but it's not just my opinion. It's also
backed up with facts. "Homeschool students are increasingly being actively
recruited by colleges,"

Homeschoolers create their own official high school transcript the same way
other high schools do: the give grades, and credits, and a GPA. A
homeschool transcript is not accredited, but there are many public schools
across the nation that are also not accredited. Let me repeat: some public
schools are not accredited.
Surprised? It's not a secret! You can read more here:
That's why homeschoolers have no trouble creating an official transcript -
one that is as official as any other unaccredited public school. And that's
why homeschoolers have no trouble getting in to colleges when they meet the
requirements. Let me give you just one example from one mother in
California. After submitting her high school transcript, made by herself at
home, her children were admitted to every college where they applied.
Hi Lee and Matt,
I am so grateful for all the help you, Lee, and your materials have

You can continue to homeschool through high school. You'll be able to make
a transcript and your child can go to college if that's your plan. Don't be
swayed by fears! If your homeschool has been working, then you can continue
all the way though high school and be successful.
My mission is to help parents homeschool high school. Learn more about
homeschooling, so you can answer the common questions with facts,
maintaining your commitment to a quality high school education.
I would love to come alongside to help!
