High School at Home: Turning Possibility into Reality
Agenda for the Day
Check in at 8:45 a.m.
How do you plan a program for your high school homeschooler? What subjects do you teach and when? How do you evaluate credits? Determine grades for a course? What about the need for a transcript and diploma? This seminar will help you organize your thoughts and begin laying the groundwork for a viable four-year plan.
10:15 AM–11:15 PM
Creating a high school transcript is easy yet a vital part of your child’s high school records. We’ll guide you through transcript essentials, evaluation of credit, grading guidelines and scales, and calculation of grade point averages (GPA’s). You’ll receive sample transcripts depicting other formats for you to consider. In addition, you’ll learn about necessary record keeping for high school and how to track your student’s progress through the high school years.
Bring your own bag lunch, purchase a lunch from Patrick Henry College’s cafeteria for $11 or eat at a nearby restaurant.
For preventative maintenance during the high school years, learn what important “to-dos” and deadlines to keep in mind. Major pit stops will include information about various tests, benefits and sources of outside classes, college search and application tips, alternatives to traditional college, and career and post high school paths.
