Developing a High School Plan: Sample 4-year Plans
How do you plan a program for your high school homeschooler? What subjects do you teach and when? How do you evaluate credits? Determine grades for a course? What about the need for a transcript and diploma? This seminar will help you organize your thoughts and begin laying the groundwork for a viable four-year plan.

High School Transcript Clinic and Recordkeeping Help
Creating a high school transcript is easy yet a vital part of your child’s high school records. We’ll guide you through transcript essentials, evaluation of credit, grading guidelines and scales, and calculation of grade point averages (GPA’s). You’ll receive sample transcripts depicting other formats for you to consider. In addition, you’ll learn about necessary record keeping for high school and how to track your student’s progress through the high school years.
