High School Transcripts  

Almost every college and university requires a high school transcript from its applicants. The parents of home-schooled students, as the student’s primary instructors, usually create a home-schooler’s transcript. Both The Guidance Manual for the Christian Home School and the Homeschoolers’ College Admissions Handbook contain detailed instructions about how to document home-schooled students’ learning and create transcripts.
