Transcripts Made Easy: How to make a homeschool transcript for high school

Transcripts Made Easy: The Homeschooler's Guide to High-School Paperwork!

You homeschool. You have teens. How 'bout that paperwork?

You know the time is coming when your homeschooled teen will need a transcript. If you'd rather spend time with people than paperwork, Transcripts Made Easy: The Homeschooler's Guide to High School Paperwork is written for you! It's all you need to know about home school trancripts, high school diplomas, and simple record-keeping.

What can Transcripts Made Easy do for you?

  • You can start homeschooling through high school with confidence when you have a simple system for tracking what your teen learns.
  • You can rest easy about the college admissions process when you know that the transcript you've created will correctly and concisely convey your student's achievements.
  • You can happily toss unnecessary busy-work, because Transcripts Made Easy takes the work out of paperwork!

Dawn C. from Ohio writes: I just finished your book, Transcripts Made Easy, and finished making my daughter's High School Records Book. I even made one for her friend. I just couldn't stop. :)

It's amazing how I went from intimidated and clueless before your book to excited and prepared after. I was grateful to figure out that many of the extra things she is doing can be compiled into a class and I can give her credit for it. I made 4 extra classes out of things I was going to have her do but didn't know how to account for it as a class. I certainly appreciate the gift God has given you to help make this homeschooling choice so much easier!

From: Janice Campbell

I remember the day my 16-year-old said, "Hey, mom-- I want to take some classes at the community college."

Although he had already earned some college credit through CLEP exams, I didn't know if I was quite ready to send him off to college! However, it really was the most practical way for him to take the higher math and lab sciences he needed in order to graduate, so we decided to start off with a couple of classes.

The problem was, the deadline for applying to the college was only days away. I wasn't ready for this! I kept his high school records in a system of files and folders, but I hadn't consolidated any of it onto a transcript. That was on my 'round-to-it' list!

I pulled out all the resources I owned on homeschooling through high school. Many of them were truly helpful in deciding what to study, but there wasn't any clear-cut instruction on how to create a homeschool transcript that would present my student in the best possible way to a college admissions department.

I wanted to see actual transcript samples! I needed to know how to figure a grade point average, and how to grant credit for honors classes! I wanted to see how to include things like AP and CLEP exams, as well as volunteer work and hobbies.

There wasn't time to find the kind of instruction book I wanted, though, as the application deadline was looming. I made best transcript I could, formatted like my own high school and college transcripts, but it was at that point I realized that if there wasn't a good book on creating transcripts, I had to write one!

"I would like to take the time to thank you so much for your book on transcripts.  I found it an invaluable resource as we've applied to countless colleges and scholarship organizations.  It helped us earn a National Merit Scholarship for our first son and has allowed us to assist our second son in receiving full college funding as well." From Alison, via e-mail.

So, just in time for my second son's college entrance, the first edition of Transcripts Made Easy was published. I found that high school paperwork can be pretty simple, especially if you start at the very beginning, and go step by step (isn't anything easier that way?). I've shown you how to start from the very beginning of high school, but because of my own experience, I've also shown you how to jump right in and pull together a transcript when you weren't expecting to. If, like me, you don't want to spend any more time (or money) than necessary on record keeping, Transcripts Made Easy is for you.

Now, nearly seven years later, two of my sons have graduated from college, and the other two have begun. The recordkeeping tools and techniques in Transcripts Made Easy has helped me stay organized and focused, making it a snap to pull together a transcript when my third son announced, "Hey, mom-- I want to take some classes at the community college." This time, it was easy!

In short, Transcripts Made Easy takes the work out of paperwork!

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND purchasing Janice Campbell's book, Transcripts Made Easy. It is the BEST $$$ for homeschooling I ever spent! It is clear, concise, not wordy, or so thick a book you don't want to EVER tackle it! It was so absolutely wonderful ...I cannot say enough about the valuable information...!! I made both of my son's transcripts (using the Horizontal format with Microsoft Word) and they were so professional looking that I amazed myself!! I used these for both of my sons when applying for public school. This book ...is filled to the brim with so much help!

I'd recommend purchasing this in the 7th grade year of your child's schooling or before so that you will be prepared with what you need because many students take high school subjects during their 8th grade year. I never planned to enter my sons into public school, but you never know what the future holds. It is much better to be prepared, and Janice Campbell has put this together to help us...it is absolutely wonderful! (From a review by Pam Smith)

Did you know that Transcripts Made Easy is the only transcript resource that comes with free e-mail support from the author? You ask, I'll answer! (This means that if you have a question while working with the homeschool transcript, you can e-mail me, and I'll do my best to help you.) I want the transcript creation process to be truly easy for you!

Hi Janice,  ... I bought Transcripts Made Easy and started working on it 3 years ago for our oldest son and just sent the first transcript out to a college. My son is a senior this year. The lady in the admissions office called about some other information today and said she wished all homeschooling parents had it together like me.  She really liked the transcript, she said she couldn't do that on her computer.  Then I told her about your book and how great it was in guiding me through the process.  I used Sample 2: Horizontal-format. I always tell people about your book because it cuts right to the chase.  I have [another book] and all the info is great, but your book showed me how to put it all together on one paper.
Thanks for your help,
Ann & Dave, Colonial Heights, VA

"High school sort of crept up on me, and my son was halfway through when I realized that I should be keeping records.

"Your book has been a lifesaver, as the worksheets helped remind me what we had done. I just finished making his transcript, and my husband can't believe how professional it looks.
