If you are homeschooling high school already or stepping into that season, you do NOT want to miss this Mastermind course/workshop. High School has quite a bit more riding on it as opposed to Middle School and presents the homeschooling parent with additional things to consider and plan for. That's where this Homeschooling Empowerment course comes in, where you will gain clarity and confidence!
My name is Kathleen Rumford, and I'm a 15-year veteran homeschooling mom of 2 daughters. Both of my daughters dual-enrolled in high school and then went on to college, with the oldest even completing her Master’s degree in Spanish Sociolinguistics, and both girls own their own businesses (entrepreneurs from a young age!).
Because I’m an engineer / math nerd by education and personality, I’ve logically and methodically deconstructed the process of mapping out the high school journey into manageable pieces in order to simplify, speed up, and organize the process for successful completion. And I've created both an easy customizable Transcript template for you, as well as a customizable GPA Calculator that works with the push of a button!
6 STEPS TO SIMPLIFYING THE HIGH SCHOOL PROCESS & TRANSCRIPT
Steps 1-4 (Level 1) are where I walk you through the simplified process of creating your student's plan as we go through the course – using the course as a workshop. (Pssst - I used this same process (steps 1-3) with my daughter when she was going to college.) Steps 5-6 and "Pulling It All Together" (Level 2) are where I walk you through creating your student's high school transcript, calculating GPAs, and creating a Comprehensive Academic Summary & Transcript Packet, with the AMAZING template I provide.
You can actually achieve most of this while going through this course, so later you can just make updates / tweaks as your child moves through high school. You will walk away empowered with greater confidence and more prepared for the high school journey.
Let's just talk about transcripts for a moment. Creating a transcript with related course documentation for your homeschooled high schooler can be quite daunting! Figuring out the weighted and unweighted GPAs? Ugggh! In the TRANSCRIPT module, we focus on taking the overwhelm and confusion out of the process and actually get your student's transcript laid out including GPAs.
- Customizable transcript template, which you can easily tailor to create your own child's transcript and program of studies.
- Customizable GPA Calculator tool to fill in your student's courses, grades, and grading scale in order to have his/her GPAs (weighted and unweighted) automatically calculated for you.
