Default Homeschooling without transcript

I've home schooled both my kids since my oldest was in 1st grade. Oldest daughter is 22 and graduated in 2014 and my youngest graduates this year May 2018. My oldest struggled with speech and language and had speech until she was in the 8th grade. She's also struggled with learning disabilities all throughout her life. During her schooling years and she continues studying just to keep up with learning we never concentrated on a grading system and concentrated on actual learning. We would work on each subject until they knew and understood everything and didn't do a "grading system". Both girls will be entering college this fall. The college requires a transcript. Have any of you home schooling moms/dads that have done the same thing know what I can do to bypass transcripts?

TIA

Seems to me that's going to be difficult. Didn't your local education authorities require scheduled proof of progress for your homeschooling process?

My daughter homeschooled three daughters who all entered college after their high school equivalent graduation and she now has two adopted boys who she will also homeschool once they reach the proper age.

She was required by the state of Indiana to use a curriculum (of her choosing as long as it was an approved one and I understand there are a number of those available) that included progress reports to the state's education powers that be. Those reports included progress test results.

Why did you choose homeschooling? Is it because of bullying or because you think it is better?

Homeschooling, in my opinion and when done correctly, is a higher quality education than public schooling.

One drawback I do see is the difficulty in the development of social skills.

I apologize for just now being able to get back on to reply. It's been very busy the last few weeks. My state does not have strict testing rules. However, my kids are very smart and were very active in our local home school group. In their elementary years we were involved in a co-op where they had classes to attend. These classes weren't on a grading system but a fun learning environment with other kids their ages. Through their teen years they were involved in teen nights and other activities with other home school students.

They might be able to test for a high school equivalent diploma through your local or state government. Or you might be able to get some advise from your local department of education.

They both took the accuplacer test at our local college and both scored very well.

Cool

Well, congratulations! It sounds like the teacher is graduating! You have gained confidence and are ready to really begin to enjoy the adventure of learning and discovery now. All the things that I would have recommended are things you are already doing or are aware of: the Typical Course of Study, the Scope and Sequence, etc.

We never really made a *drastic* change to unschooling. We just inched that way over the years. And we never went totally without curriculum in math. That subject demands some structure. In science, we went without prearranged curriculum up until high school. We chose themes and did a lot of experiments when the kids were little. But for high school science we stuck pretty close to the Apologia books and the aerospace book that was published in partnership with the Air Force. Otherwise, I would have run ragged trying to cobble together enough science to make a decent transcript that a college admissions officer would respect.

History and literature though… They are naturals for dumping the textbooks and using what Charlotte Mason called "living books." Except for a grammar handbook and a style guide, we finished our season of home education without a curriculum in these subjects. Even my 'non-reader' read 80+ books for literature during the course of high school. My other two, who enjoyed reading, finished over 100 books each. When I was filling out the records, I got to figuring about how many books my own public high school had required. It was about 16 books and 4 anthology texts in four years. How much richer it is to not be chained to a standard curriculum!\

They are all out earning their own way in the so-called real world now. Their friendships are deep and stable. They relate well to others on a variety of subjects. When I hear someone saying that homeschoolers are not well-socialized, I can throw back my head and laugh the fullest of belly laughs.

I am homeschooling is very cool, you have the opportunity to learn, to gain knowledge without leaving home. I also want to recommend a service for learning from home, this is assignment writing help, you can read more about it on our website, I think you will be interested.
