    …and transcripts aren’t the only thing made easy! Janice Campbell has a gift for taking each aspect of homeschooling a high schooler and showing that the task CAN be done and can be done with a minimum of vexatious worry. This new 4th edition contains the practical and encouraging content from the previous editions along with valuable new information including an overview of what students need to learn in high school, a chapter on college alternatives, tips from a college professor on what every college freshman needs to know, an updated chapter on record keeping and transcripts for special needs students and detailed step-by-step instructions for creating transcripts using software you own or that you can download for free.

      Starting at the beginning, Mrs. Campbell talks about when to start planning as well as the flip side of that question: what to do if you haven’t been planning and high school is almost over. What to study, standardized testing, and skills and habits to cultivate in high school all receive a brief but thorough examination. With the transcript as the focal point, Mrs. Campbell covers record keeping, naming classes, grading (including how to grade ethically), and assigning credits.

      Since transcripts aren’t just for the “traditionally homeschooled” (whatever that is), you’ll find information here for preparing transcripts for unschoolers and the chronically relaxed. This isn’t just general information, either, as she gets very specific in terms of transcript (and diploma) text.

     Samples of transcripts and diplomas as well as many reproducible forms (reading and activities logs, class profile, subject worksheets, and blank transcript forms) are provided. ~ Janice/Deanne

    Finally, a file to track your students' progress through your home school. This grayish, cardstock file folder has lots of great pre-printed features to help you record your student's academic progress from 1st through 12th grade. On the front of the folder, fill in the blanks with your student's information - date and place of birth, gender, social security number, mother's and father's names, address, and phone number. There is also space to attach a photo and list where the student attended each grade, which is helpful if your student attended another school in previous years. On the inside of the front cover, there are spaces to record graduation data, extracurricular activities, and testing records. The inside of the back cover is about an inch taller than the front and allows you to write your student's name so you can see it easily even if the file is in a drawer. Then, each grade is broken down into blank charts with spaces for eight subjects and their final grades. The charts for grades 1-8 are in the inside back cover, while the charts for high school are continued on the backside. Underneath the high school charts are places to record their cumulative GPA and total credits. This file helps you easily check your students records in a glance, keeps them all in one place, and can also hold relevant papers and documents.

    Is it a planner? Or a how-to book on homeschooling high school? You’ll have to decide for yourself. For each of the four high school years there is a 44-page planner section; it includes six monthly two-page layouts, a two-page six month calendar, a journal-type semester summary, attendance record, and achievement record for each semester, plus two articles that pertain to planning that year. The layout for each month shows five columns with lined boxes for each day. There’s room to write assignments for six subjects, complete with check-off circle. A sixth column has a character challenge, a monthly summary (e.g. grades, attendance, and activities), and a brief note on future planning. Each month’s pages also include a scripture verse and miniature current and following month’s calendars. The beginning of the book has a sample month, course requirements, a course planning worksheet, transcript requirements, and a sample transcript. The end of the book provides a section on college preparation – a checklist on what to do when, blank high school transcripts, college portfolio worksheet and details, worksheets (college and scholarship considerations), and notes.

    As with other planners from Well-Planned Day, color and graphic schemes (different for each year) are inviting and strike a nice balance in appealing to both genders. Planner is 8.5” x 11” spiral-bound. Janice

    If you are preparing to homeschool a highschooler, no doubt you already realize that this is a big responsibility. If you are unsure whether you are going to continue to homeschool through high school, be assured that the same reasons you chose to homeschool in the first place are still applicable through these years. You are still able to provide your students with everything they need to be prepared for college - likely even more than their peers. The focus of this book is homeschooling through high school with the goal of college admission. Frequently homeschoolers approaching these years wonder if they will be able to give their students what they need to be accepted, and they are wary about keeping the right records, being eligible for scholarships, preparing official transcripts, and numerous other considerations that will be encountered. The author of this book, Jeanne Gowen Dennis, has (successfully!) homeschooled her daughter through high school, and she is now excelling in college. Because of the many questions Dennis has received on this subject, she decided to write a book to help prepare parents and show them exactly what they need to do to prepare their students. Not only did she draw on her experience and that of other homeschooling families, she also surveyed over 260 colleges on her own to find out what they looked for, what they required, and what strengths and weaknesses they noticed among homeschoolers enrolled in their colleges. This book begins with a chapter targeting the unsure. Dennis spells out the many advantages of homeschooling through high school, reassuring you that you are qualified to undertake this responsibility. She also lists out the disadvantages, such as not having such wide access to lab science materials, administrative tasks that you will be required to do, potential social problems (no, this does NOT have to be case at all, but she mentions it in order to help you recognize the importance of preparing your students to be in college life) and a few others. She also provides ways to combat these though, with excellent, sound advice. Next, she offers you the "Blueprint for Success", an outline of all the skills you need to build in your student - be it good character, academic, or practical. Planning and Priorities is an excellent chapter listing goals for high school education. Next she instructs in planning schedules, budget, selecting quality curriculum, and other important decisions. Chapter 5 is an extremely helpful chapter, showing by subject what is important for students to learn before going to college. A chapter for the home guidance office offers knowledge about keeping accurate records, college and career planning, alternatives for higher education, college entrance exams (SAT or ACT? What are the pros and cons of taking the GED?), and financial aid. Then is an extensive guide to finding the right college, along with a several page questionnaire to fill out regarding the college. The next chapter highlights noted strengths and potential weaknesses of homeschoolers in college, helping you to build on the strengths and alleviate the weaknesses. Chapters 9 and 10 guide you through all the information you should keep and record, how to prepare your transcript to look professional, assigning credits, writing course descriptions, assigning grades, and everything else you need to package in order to apply to colleges and look professional. There are tons of forms and charts to help you prepare your student's records clearly and correctly. Extensive appendices include a chart of college homeschool requirements (gathered from over 100 colleges across the nation), homeschool high school resources, a section for students, and a very complete list of recommended reading - one from a college English professor, one from a literature based homeschooling mom, and an additional compilation of other favorites from the author and other parents. If you are unsure of whether you want to continue homeschooling into this period, if you feel incompetent, or if you know you want to but have questions regarding preparation for college, this guide will prove extremely valuable to you. There is a lot of information here for anyone preparing students for college admission. 306 pgs. - Melissa

    You’ll find things in this homeschool planner that don’t show up in others. And they’re likely to be just what you were wanting. The expected 36 weeks of planning pages are there – M-F across the top horizontally with nine vertical unlined boxes (1 1/8” x 2 3/4”) labeled Scripture, English, History, Math, Science, three blank boxes, and Notes. Then, there’s the might-be-expected – sheets for daily attendance, field trips, chores, daily schedule, daily grade sheet. Lastly, there are a few things that will surprise you: a list to prepare “our family rules,” character development chart, instructional sections on grading and preparing a transcript, reproducible report cards, and short essays with helpful hints and anecdotes. Definitely the work of an experienced homeschool mom from a Christian perspective. Janice

    I consider myself to be fairly knowledgeable when it comes to college-prep homeschooling, but I just discovered that I only knew the proverbial "tip of the iceberg." Fortunately, I can now point you to the real expert Jennifer Cook-DeRosa. This book is an amazing compendium of information. She covers all the topics you would expect college credit at home, high school planning, curriculum-building, test-taking, transcripts, college admissions and costs. She covers these topics completely and thoroughly; citing a wealth of resources, in a manner that I appreciate bullet points. But what I savored most is the overall philosophy of her approach. Homeschooling moms wear many hats during their career, but one that has been overlooked (at least until now) is that of high school guidance counselor. With this book in hand, you will have the tools you need to guide your child not only through high school but into college and onto a life path that avoids many expensive pitfalls along the way. Her general approach to educational costs might be dubbed a Dave Ramsey-esque cost/value assessment. In other words, she gives you lots of options for avoiding the ubiquitous college debt that many families just accept and many homeschooling families avoid by shunning college educations all together. Her tips for talking to children about the relative value of jobs and their attainment cost helps to put "pursuing your dream" into economical perspective and will help you realistically prepare your children for establishing and supporting a family. Don't wait until your child is in high school to read this book (although better then than never) middle school is a good time to start the process of educating yourself (once again) and filling your mind with the possibilities. Now in a revised, expanded 2nd edition with new content. 337 pgs. pb. ~ Janice

    Looking for a solidly Christian and academically complete health and nutrition course for your high schooler? You may have just found it! Although this course was not available for an independent review prior to our catalog printing, it appears this course will meet the academic and value needs of homeschool families. Beginning with an overview of anatomy and physiology, this courses scope includes senses, genetics, macro and micro nutrients, exercise and diet. Emotional issues and mental illness, human value, culture, gender roles, families, socialization, communication skills and conflict resolution skills are also covered. Reproductive anatomy and physiology are covered including accurate illustrations and descriptions. Marriage, sexuality, pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases are discerningly explained, along with alcohol and drug abuse, depression, pornography and other topics necessary for our young people to understand for successful navigation in adulthood. This is handled gently, and respectfully, but parents should evaluate their young adults emotional and spiritual maturity prior to lessons. Over 50 projects are included in the text/student notebook which will not require a lab kit. The publisher states this will not meet a high school science lab credit.

    Unlike other Apologia courses, the Student Notebook is required for this course. Solutions are available online with course purchase. Apologia recommends the course be taken concurrently with their 9th grade Biology. Parents should discern their young person's ability and maturity. This one-year course will meet your transcript needs and prepare your student for college level courses. ~ Deanne

    Learning the keyboard is imperative for today's student. Take your typing course to the next level with this 34-week course. Weekly lessons follow a similar format: a classroom or group lesson (parents can read through this lesson with their children) and four daily practice lessons. Practice lessons have the student review the material from the group lesson in daily increments followed by 10-20 minutes of typing practice per day. The author recommends a simple text editor like Microsoft Notepad®, Microsoft Wordpad® or Apple Textedit® (free with your computer operating system) for practice. These programs do not include spell checkers or auto correct features that will cover mistakes and prevent the student from learning correctly.

    The first weekly lesson in the textbook is critical to success. Covering the differences between typing and keyboarding, various keys, the QWERTY keyboard, correct typing posture along and more, the first week ends with a baseline 3-minute typing test. I appreciate the focus on correct hand position and sitting posture as a preventative measure against carpal tunnel syndrome. Lessons cover nearly every aspect of the computer keyboard. Here is just a sample of the skills learned: the space bar and enter key; home row, the letter keys, punctuation and special keys, shift key/caps lock key, practice with typing common words including articles, conjunctions, helping verbs, pronouns and prepositions, learning to use the numeric key pad, tabs/text alignment, typing a friendly letter or business letter, making a certificate of completion plus many others. Complete table of contents is available on our website. Keyboard shortcuts are covered in the appendix. Each lesson focuses on 3-4 letters before advancing to more complicated keys and skills which allows for mastery of material. Students needing more practice can review the practice lessons as necessary, as the suggested practice time is flexible to meet individual student needs.

    A timed typing test is included with every even-numbered lesson to assess student progress. Timed tests begin as one minute tests and progress in length to five minutes by the end of the course. A keyboarding speed progress chart is available at the back of the book to measure progress.

    You may wonder how this course compares to the author's Keyboarding for Homeschoolers -Summer Text? The complete content (13 lessons) from the Summer Text are repeated in this course. Additionally, this course provides more instruction on various special keys like the colon, apostrophe, question marks, brackets, tab key and text alignment, along with additional practice typing commonly used suffixes, helping verbs, pronouns, and prepositions and typing a friendly or business letter. This one year course provides more depth and practice, although some students may do well with a quick summer overview followed by time spent teaching themselves the additional keys and skills for keyboarding aptitude.

    All in all, this is a fully developed, systematic typing course that will provide your high schooler an elective credit on his transcript. It is worth mentioning that the course focuses on memorization of the keyboard through practice on a covered keyboard. A mini-keyboard with color-coded keys is a recommended resource and the author has included a reproducible copy in the textbook. Unfortunately, the color-coded keys are not well distinguished in the black and white graphic. I would recommend printing a keyboard with color-coded keys (coded for finger use) from the internet rather than using the included graphic. Whether college or workforce bound, keyboarding is a valuable skill that our young people need for success and this well-organized, easy to use course may provide them everything necessary for success.

    Although designed as a high school course, IPC can be an excellent science course for pre-high school students. The full course equates to two high school transcript credits: Physics and Basic Chemistry. Teachers can elect to have students complete all twelve chapters in one year to earn two transcript credits. Another option is to divide the course in half, selecting six chapters to be completed for one transcript credit for Conceptual Physics (chapters 2, 4, 6, 9, 10, 12) or six chapters for one credit in Basic Chemistry (chapters 1, 3, 5, 7, 8, 11).

    Includes all texts, activity packets, and Teacher's Resource Kit w/ digital downloads.

     Have a child who wants (or needs!) more real-life experience but not sure where to begin? This insightful resource from Apologia provides the vision and purpose of internships and step by step directions for success. Simply defined, an internship is an opportunity for students to gain practical career experience and skills in a potential career path. While often unpaid, these provide excellent opportunities to determine if a job fits one’s personality and gifts, while also providing marketable job skills and bolstering college applications or job resumes.

      Part 1 walks the student through choosing an internship type and which company to intern with, writing a resume and letter of introduction and preparing for the interview.

      Part 2 is written to you, the parent. You will learn how support your child in choosing an internship location along with applicable child labor laws and transcript and credit information.

      Parts 3-5 document the experience. These sections are divided into 2 semesters and a course wrap up. Included are weekly activity worksheets, mid-term and end of semester evaluation forms to be completed by a supervisor, semester summary and more. The course wrap up also includes a final writing assignment, sample thank you note, and information on obtaining a letter of recommendation and tips to update the resume.

      Additional resources target guidance counselors, making this a valuable resource for home and Christian schools. Encouraging quotes and Scripture verses throughout. Spiral Bound. Non-reproducible. 99 pgs. ~ Deanne

      This book contains a group of texts organized around a common topic. A main or “anchor” text introduces the topic, then the other texts in each set relate to the topic in some way (using a variety of genres). For example, Text 6 asks the question, “Why Explore Space?” There are a couple of video transcript articles, an opinion article, an online article and an editorial. Finally, there is a graphic organizer at the end of each text set, which students can use to organize their opinions and discussion. Each topic encourages students to examine and compare information, and thought-provoking questions are located at the end of each document to increase critical thinking skills. The book is divided into three thematic sections: Kids and School, Current Events, and Historical Events. Activity suggestions are also included to help students see things from different points of view. Because comparative reading is an important skill and emphasized in the Common Core State Standards, this book will help students practice reading a variety of nonfiction texts and use text evidence to answer higher-level questions. A Common Core correlation chart is also listed in the front of the book. ~ Gina

    Subtitled, “All Lab, No Lecture” and this book delivers! Truly a DIY Science book, you will find this a valuable resource with a completely illustrated guide to setting up a home biology lab without expensive lab equipment (high school quality microscope required), as well as an easy to use lab manual for a rigorous first-year high school biology course. Beginning with an overview of how to use the book, set up a home biology lab (including how to choose a microscope) and lab safety, the book dives into 30 lab sessions that incorporate nearly 80 separate procedures! Following each procedure are review questions that require students to analyze the activities using the scientific process.

    Topically, students will learn how to master the microscope and build and observe a microcosm. They will also explore the chemistry of life: acids, bases, and buffers, carbohydrates and lipids, proteins, enzymes and vitamins; life processes (plants); ecology; genetics; cells and unicellular organisms, including protista, fungi, plants and animals (worms). Each lab procedure begins with a list of equipment and materials used. While many of these are easy to find, there are some specialized items you will need available to begin: goggles, forceps, gloves, book light or lamp, various prepared slides (call for list); cover slips; glycerol; pipettes; scalpel, well and flat slides; methylene blue; butane lighter (flame source); microtome (instructions included to make your own); eosin Y; Gram’s Iodine; Hucker’s crystal violet; 70% ethanol; methylcellulose; pH paper; particulate mask; centrifuge tubes (15 and 50 ml); fertilizer concentrate; hydrochloric acid; lead (II) acetate; acetic acid; Beakers (10, 100 and 250 ml); graduated cylinder; 24 and 96 well reaction plate; sodium hydroxide solution; Barfoed’s reagent; Benedict’s reagent; dextrose; Seliwanoff’s reagent; test tubes/test tube rack and test tube clamp; Sudan III stain; Ascorbic Acid tablet; sodium hydroxide; thermometer; sodium dodecyl sulfate; alligator clip leads; agar; Safranin O stain; chromatography paper; bromothymol blue; Ammonium Nitrate; Nitrogen Free Fertilizer (concentrate A-B-C) inoculating loop; rhizobia inoculum; vermiculite; balance; Sodium Borate solution; PTC test strips; Amoxicillin antibiotic cap; Antibiotic powders (chlortetracycline, neomycin and sulfadimethoxine); and teasing needles. But don’t let the specialized equipment scare you from this great resource! The authors’ website The Home Scientist offers a standard kit containing these items (with the exception of commonly found items, the balance and the prepared slides). This website also includes links to recommended secular, online Biology textbooks, as well as a syllabus aligned to the 2nd ed. Apologia Biology text and the BJU 4th ed. Biology textbook, which makes this a worthwhile option for obtaining high school Biology with Lab credit on your child’s high school transcript. This would also make an excellent resource to use alongside the Holt Biology course, or to add a lab science credit to a Charlotte Mason/Living Book Science experience. Detailed index adds to the ease of use for creating your own Biology lab at home. 358 pgs, sc. ~ Deanne

    Subtitled How to Craft Homeschool Transcripts and Course Descriptions for College Admission and Scholarships. Sometimes, the thought of creating a transcript sends us homeschoolers into near hysteria. I've heard of those who stopped homeschooling just before high school from the sheer fear of this alone. Lee Binz, of HomeScholar.com, cheers you on. With God's help you can do this! This book focuses on the "nitty gritty" of high school: the transcripts (and all that they compose), credits, course descriptions, assigning grades, GPA, etc. Emphasis is placed on accurately and effectively communicating to your transcript's intended audience: colleges (also applicable to the workplace). Binz respectfully handles such potentially challenging issues as accurately translating your personal homeschool experience to a typical institution. Easily understood, the book is practical and thorough, with plenty of diagrams, charts and black and white illustrations as support. While Binz does not specifically emphasize scholarships, the methods explained will provide a transcript which can be used in scholarship applications. Six practical appendices include a guide and templates for transcripts, examples of a comprehensive record, and an expanded transcript, as well as two different actual transcript examples. 7" x 10", 222 pp, sc. ~ Ruth

    Finding and paying for a college are two big challenges. And finding the perfect fit for your students often involves, to a certain extent, a level of marketing your student to the college of his/her choice. This book will help you meet those challenges. Sections include Preparing for College; Finding a College; Applying to College; Getting Scholarships; Facing Reality (struggling learners, gap years and other college prep complications); and Additional Resources (planning helps; ideas for community and leadership activities; and application lexicon). You won't be overwhelmed! Chapters are short, condensed, and dominated by bullet points and lists and even offer an Executive Summary for Busy Parents. You will find author's personal anecdotes, planning timelines and guides, lots of tips from high school planning to attending college fairs and finding scholarships. While the temptation would be to pick this up during your child's Senior high school year, this book actually will help you devise a plan and more effectively navigate all of the high school years with confidence. 7" x 10" 255 pgs, sc. ~ Ruth

    Whether your child plans to attend college directly after high school or take time to determine his future aspirations, providing a quality homeschool high school experience is imperative. For my family, our oldest was college-motivated and incorporated dual-enrollment courses during her high school years, which paved (and eased!) the way for completing her BSN (Nursing) in less than four years. Our youngest is the complete opposite. A struggling learner, he was not sure college was right for him after graduation and is taking a slower path. As a homeschool mom, I am thankful I prepared them, to the best of their abilities, for college. Researching the ins and outs of what and how to teach a college preparatory high school was time consuming and dare I say, wearisome.

    If only I had read this book when my children were younger!

    Co-written by a college professor and his wife who have homeschooled their children from PK-12th grade, this book provides all the tools you need for a successful homeschool high school experience. Bringing together vision, practical tips and thorough course and transcript recommendations, this book is conveniently divided into the following four sections: Preparing Yourself (Getting the Answers You Need to Make the Choice to Homeschool through High school); Preparing Your Child (Developing skills for Success in College and Life); Preparing Your Program (Creating Your High School Curriculum) and Preparing for the End (Documenting for College).

    In the midst of all of this valuable counsel are personal stories and insights along with key points to "take away." We are carrying the 2nd edition of this excellent book. Within this new edition there have been organizational changes, expanded sections and added content. The author has also set up a website which contains additional support that will be beneficial to homeschooling parents. Included on this website are a wide range of college tips for our homeschool teens, Course descriptions/credits and schedules overviews as well as expanded core and elective subjects. Additionally a list of testing resources is listed. Personally, I found this to be one of the most helpful and compelling homeschool through high school books I have read in a long time.
