Homeschool High School: What High School Information Will i Have to Have?

By Leo Steven Subscribe to RSS | February 28th 2012 | Views:

Exactly what high school records do I really need to keep is a typical question of home school parents. You do not want to have your house over-run with papers, yet you should try to be organized and also equipped with whatever you could need. There are several things that all homeschooling families ought to have.

Colleges will want to see a transcript. A transcript is an valuable thing to have even in the event your children are not heading away to college because at some time, somewhere, somehow, someone might ask you for one. Be sure that you have a transcript that includes the course names, the credits and also grades.

Quite often colleges will need to see a reading list, also. A reading list is basically a listing of books that your student has read. It isn't a reading bibliography. So providing you have the author's name as well as the title of the books that you have read you should be just fine.

Several colleges, if not most colleges like to see course descriptions also. A course description is really just a one paragraph descriptive essay of what you taught in a class. This shouldn't be challenging or complicated either given that a descriptive essay is something that we teach our kids how to do beginning at fifth grade. It is in fact just a fifth grade writing assignment. I know you are capable of doing that.

Some other kinds of information that colleges can want is a bit more varied. For instance, certain colleges will want samples from a class. I simply cannot tell you what class it is going to be since each and every college will ask for something unique. What I frequently advise is that people attempt to retain a couple of samples from each and every class.

You will need to have a wide assortment of samples. In your math class, you may wish to keep math tests, you will need to keep a few science lab write-ups for science classes, and you might keep that paragraph they wrote in French, or maybe their menus and recipes from their culinary arts class. Make sure you keep something from each and every class because I was a bit surprised at the things that the college admission people were asking me for. It came as a surprise and I was really relieved that I had a sample from each class.
