3 Ways to High School Credit -

Does assigning high school credit seemed daunting to you? 

 It doesn't have to be.  Really.

As homeschoolers, we look for signs of learning, and as we work with our kids, 1 on 1, we know what they are getting and what they are missing....

Assigning credit is just a way to translate what your child has accomplished into terms that the outside world can understand. 

Well, we found it to be a lot easier than we first thought.  We found that we could assign credit and still keep our homeschool style.

Below are three ways to approach high school credits, and we used all of them.  

We needed to ramp up our recordkeeping, but still kept our nurturing, homeschool flavor, .....well, most days, anyway!

  1. Yes! I think sometimes we overthink, overworry, and overcomplicate things. =)
    My oldest is going to graduate in December, a half semester early, because I realized that she already has a full transcript, minus only a couple of courses which she will complete in the fall. That was a nice discovery. =)

  2. For sure, I did, when I started homeschooling high school! How wonderful, Amber, that your teen gets to graduate early. How nice that you found that out! Thanks for sharing, as that can really be an encouragement to other families, as they take on high school. Wishing you and your family a beautiful graduation time with your teen, this December!

  3. I am so glad to have found this! I have pretty much only heard about the hour method and thought that would not work for us since we don't spend hours on each subject.. even in a week! Pinned.

    1. I am so glad that it will be a help, Mother of 3! We made some of our own courses and used all of these 3 methods for assigning credit. Hope you and your teen have a great year!
