High School Transcripts 101

Homeschoolers must create a high school transcript that includes all of the relevant information to prove that your children successfully completed high school. What information should or should not be included? Do I list courses by semester or by year? How do I calculate a GPA? How do I handle honors or college courses? This seminar will give you the tools to confidently create a high school transcript.

To Dual Credit or Not to Dual Credit

High School students are increasingly taking college courses while still in high school. Should my children take courses? How do I determine if they are ready for college courses? What options are available? Should they take online courses or on-campus courses? Where do the classes belong on a transcript? How do I calculate them into my child’s GPA? This session will answer these questions and more!
