High schools don't have to accept your homeschool credits, and you can't MAKE them accept your credits. Create the transcript as you would for a college, but recognized that they have all the power.

It's fall of senior year and you and your child are sitting down to submit college applications. Of course, your job will be much easier if the homeschool transcript is done.
