When you apply for colleges you must submit a transcript with your application. For those is traditional schooling, obtaining this transcript is merely a matter of going into the office and asking your guidance counselor for one, but for home schooling it is another matter. Your child's education from kindergarten through high school is shown on a home school transcript. Obtaining the home school transcript is relatively simple.
First though we need to know what a home school transcript is. This is an official report for your student. This report will list the achievements, grades, studies, credits and subjects that your student has completed.
Next, you need to find out what the legal requirements are in your area. This will be the main basis for you to be able to make sure that your child has met the standards for their certificates. So, for example, in a traditional public school each student is required to take a certain number of credits of PE, Science, Math, etc. the same holds true for home school, and will be shown on the transcript.
