    I would like to know what has worked well for people who have created a transcript after following SCM’s recommendations. I have found the credits to assign useful from the back of the lesson plan books but I am not sure of what exactly to “call” what my son has accomplished in a way that is easily recognizable by admissions officers. He is currently 16 and in his 10th grade year. The only reason I need to compose a transcript is because he is looking into attending a vocational/tech school for music lessons next year and they require one. If anyone would be willing to share a sample of a transcript by email (you could *** out names and grades for confidentiality), my address is melissacseverance@gmail.com (don’t miss the “c” btwn my first and last name). Many thanks for any input here.

    I called everything pretty much what they wanted to hear it called.  They’re looking for the cold hard “fab four” with something resembling electives, so that’s what I gave ’em.  🙂

    English – here I realized, like history, we have a lot of lessons that fall in to this category so I actually averaged them all to create the grade for these (we needed grades on our transcript) and gave them one per year.  I usually name this course every year based on the literature focus we had that year – Survey of Short Stories; Classical Literature; World Literature; Southern Literature, etc.

    Math – here I gave them one a year; nevermind that we never did one in a year but instead some faster and some slower than that

    Science – I counted high school sciences done in 7th or 8th if I felt confident they were really high school level

    History – there are many lessons in CM that fall under here so I did what I did with english and averaged them to create the grade; I think here I used either World or American each year but not both in one year … come to think of it, in high school we quit doing simultaneous world and American histories and did one or the other.

    As far as electives, I chose ones that emphasized the very best characteristics of a CM education – Shakespeare; Speech; Fine Arts, etc.

    Honestly, there is the real transcript and then there is the one you create for use with applications and scholarships.  I say tailor it as needed as long as your honest. Of course, this is just one way to approach it.
