  1. For those of us whose students still have several years at home, who are trying to map courses of study....could we have a thread where those of you whose students have been admitted post their transcripts and as many other aspects of the admission process as you have time to share? That would be so helpful... Also, I had been starting to think that hour keeping was not so important from various posts, but then when Jane in NC posted the request from Grinnell admissions, asking the number of hours spent per discipline, I started getting nervous again. (We have been keeping track, but many times when he is working in the evening he doesn't bother to add that on). So I'm wondering how many of you keep track of hours AND do you keep track of "all" hours, meaning if they spend eg 2 extra hours in the evening on homework on one lesson, do you add that into the hours basket?
  2. I am interested in seeing the criteria you use for designating honors courses for your homeschool. We are entering the first year of high school for my son, and his schedule is pretty beefy, but I am not sure whether his great books course should be considered an honors course or not. I realize that the honors distinction is purely an on-paper one; I just would like to give that designation if it is deserved, now or in the future. TIA!
  3. I'm updating DS transcript and presently have his PSAT, SAT and ACT scores on his transcript. It seemed appropriate to have them there when he was applying for a summer institute program (no, he didn't get in :sad:). Now however the transcript I'm putting together is the one that will be sent to colleges in the fall. Shouldn't I take off his SAT, ACT and PSAT scores? Won't these school receive these scores from the College Board? If I'm going to keep his transcript to one page I really need the room to put his AP scores there instead. Thanks! Carole
  4. I'm slightly freaking out about it. My biggest concern is keeping records/transcripts since we have never kept grades before. I sure I will figure it out. Just wanted to say hi. I'll be reading all the posts from you high school pros.
  5. This is an off-shoot of the "is philosophy a social studies course" thread. To be honest, I don't like the term social studies based on some of my high school courses with not-so-inspiring teachers. However, if I'm going to start working on a transcript for high school, is there a guide that would tell me what belongs where? Some things are obvious; math, sciences--well, maybe science is not so obvious. Is psychology a science or not? My biology professors didn't think so back when some psychologists were citing and even using animal studies, etc. Why can't philosophy and logic be by themselves, separate from social studies? In the end, it's not really that important in life, but I ought to know this for transcripts ahead.
  6. My oldest will be starting high school in the fall, so all of this transcript/credit stuff is new to me. When I looked online at some high school course catalogs, it seemed that everyone includes literature and composition together as one course. My son will be studying World Literature, which I feel is a complete course in itself. However, he will also be using Warriner's and IEW for English Composition. So if I separate them on the transcript, would I put World Literature (1 credit) and English Composition 1 (1 credit) or should the comp class only count for half a credit?
  7. How does it work for transcripts to take high school level classes before 9th grade? I'm wondering about this in general, but I'm also thinking specifically about Latin taken before 9th and Algebra I taken in 8th grade. ETA: I just read some of the "similar threads" listed below about Latin credits. My question is assuming that the Latin taken prior to 9th would constitute high school level work, such as a high school level course taken in 8th grade or a high school level course spread out over 7th & 8th grades. Do colleges truly only want to see what the dc have taken in 9th - 12th grades, or do they want to see what high school level courses they've taken period, no matter what age? Do ps kids get to count some 8th grade work towards high school (like they're able to receive some college credits in high school)? Thanks!
  8. I will have a child in 9th grade next year. I have not been wonderful at tracking our homeschooling as we live in Texas and there are few requirements for tracking. Periodically, I make up elaborate spreadsheets and include our work on those, but they get rather tedious and I eventually quit doing them. I rarely grade things and we just go from one thing to the next until we finish the book, regardless of age or time of year. High school is different, I understand, because I will need to have a transcript for my student. If she desires to go to a university, I would like to have something ready for her, so that she is not penalized for being a homeschooled student. What do you all do for tracking your high school student? Do you keep track of hours in order to assign credits to specific classes? I have a Mac computer, so won't be able to use some of the more popular software programs to help me do this. I'll probably have to come up with some sort of spreadsheet. TIA,
  9. Our oldest is 10 but I'm starting to think about what I need to do for him to get to college. Do colleges only look at 9th to 12th grade? Should I start keeping records in 7th grade?
  10. Ok, so I'm mildly realizing I need to pull myself together. My 16 year old step-daughter is now half homeschooled. So, she'll have the last two years on a public school transcript, and now being homeschooled...I suppose that she'll still have a "3 course" transcript. I'm trying to use AcademicRecords.com so...it's a free transcript..basically. I really am freaking...I need to pull together the other half. Also, she's very smart and she is looking at a "Classical College" possibility. I really need her to get whatever money from sources besides us.... So, I'm hoping the fact that her PS high school hasn't required a language won't be a problem. She'll at least have Henle I done before she finishes. (from after/ homeschooling) She's also played band in school for years. (Which they let you do at her school instead of a foreign language.) We don't have any community service projects for her....Ugh...splitting a child in half between two families is really hard! (How about what takes the least time and still looks good?) Carrie :confused:
  11. This question has probably been asked by many and answered, but I am new to the high school thread. I will have an 8th grader next year. She may go to public school for 9th grade - the jury is still out on that one! My daughter will be taking 3 high school level classes next year: Algebra I, Spanish I, and Honors Literature (high school class through a co-op). I am undecided as to whether I should include credit for these courses on her high school transcript. In our county, the public school allows 8th graders to receive high school credit for Algebra & Spanish. We use an umbrella school for record keeping. When I asked the school if my daughter could acieve high school credit for these courses the response was: "It is our policy to credit accept only high school Math and Science courses taken prior to high school enrollment. We are, however, open to the option of allowing parents to decide whether they would like to add certain additional courses with a cautionary understanding that the addition of these courses may "FLAG" them at certain colleges/universities. If these courses are "FLAGGED" it may cause the university to reject the credits for the course or they may choose to reject all credits on the transcript. It is totally their discretion to do so." I'm not sure if there is any advantage to assigning high school credit for classes taken in 8th grade -- but, then again, this is all very new to me. My daughter is in a college prep track and will take advanced classes and hopefully aquire college credit prior to graduation. She does plan to attend college. Thank you for any advice. The threads on this board have been so helpful to me!
  12. I was curious what others have discovered when applying to colleges. Do they want Course Descriptions? Did you include it just in case?
  13. Those would be the course descriptions that you included with transcripts for college applications -- Interested in wording, types of things included, etc. I am not the most creative person, and would really benefit from seeing how others worded things. Thanks --
  14. My upcoming 8th grader will start these subjects this Summer/Fall: CD Alg 1 Latin 1 (high school level) Intro To Logic (Nance) Omnibus 1 w/ online class (possibly considered honors?) These seem like high school level courses and should be eligible for high school credit. Please correct me if I am totally off base here. Thanks a million!
