Misty Posted July 11, 2008 Share Posted July 11, 2008 Has anyone been down this road and can give some advice? My daughter is 10, but could probably handle some high school courses. Math is the only subject that holds her back. I've been thinking about dual enrollment, possibly full-time enrollment, to college around the age of 15 or 16, but not sure what the process would be. How do you provide a high school transcript when the child has barely started high school? Should I start keeping transcripts now at age 10? I don't even teach most subjects to her because she absorbs them on her own. The subjects I do teach are pretty much at grade level for the most part, but she will be doing 7th grade Lightning Lit & Comp next year and continuing with high school level literature. Her knowledge of most subjects (science, history, religion, art, literature, etc.) is extensive and impressive, but I have no written record of most of it since she has acquired it all on her own. She does want to go early and is even doing extra math each week because she is worried that it will hold her back (she has big plans for her life!!). So for those of us who are expecting early college admission, maybe dual enrollment, do you start keeping transcripts earlier than usual? Is there any BTDT wisdom to be shared? I use HS Tracker. Is this good for keeping track of credits or is there something else better? And, yes, the thought of my young daughter amongst all of those 18-year-olds is a very scary thought! We would consider all options and make our decision carefully depending on the college, her age, and opportunities available to her. Thanks!
