Home Schooling High School – What High School Records Do You Need To Retain? «

Home Schooling High School – What High School Records Do You Need To Retain?

What high school records do I really need to keep is a common question of homeschooling parents. You don’t want to have your house over-run with papers, but you wish to be organized and also equipped with anything you might need. There are several things that all homeschool families should have.

Colleges are going to need to see a transcript. A transcript is an essential thing to have even in the event your kids aren’t going off to college because at some point, somewhere, somehow, somebody could ask you for one. Make sure that you have a transcript that includes the course names, the credits and also grades.

Quite often colleges will want to see a reading list, as well. A reading list is basically a list of books that your student has read. It is not a reading bibliography. So providing you have the author’s name and the title of the books that you have read you should be just fine.

Many colleges, if not most colleges need to see course descriptions as well. A course description is really just a one paragraph descriptive essay of what you taught in a class. This should not be challenging or overwhelming either given that a descriptive essay is something that we teach our children how to do starting at fifth grade. It’s in fact just a fifth grade writing assignment. I know that you are capable of doing that.

Other types of information that colleges can request is a little bit more varied. For example, certain colleges will want samples from a class. I simply cannot tell you what class it’s going to be because each and every college will ask for something different. What I typically advise is that people try to keep a few samples from each and every class.

You will want to keep a wide range of samples. In your math class, you may want to keep math tests, you should keep some 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 little surprised at the things that the college admission people were asking me for. It came as a surprise and I was really happy that I had a sample from each class.
