View Full Version : High School Portfolio

Abbie will be in 8th grade next year :eek: and I need advice for keeping her high school portfolio. Can any of you recommend a book that would help me out. I guess I'm trying to make sure that I have everything written down that she needs when she starts applying to colleges.

Could you check HSLDA's web-site? Our co-op had a rep come out last night and talk about transcripts, how to organize them, how to figure grades, listing "core classes" before "elective classes".

There is a "Preparing High School Transcript" that opens as a PDF so I can't link it. Don't need to be a member to open it up.

One thing I remembered was that if your 8th grader is taking 4 or more high school credits, it would be better to call them a 9th grader. One or two credits in 8th grade was okay.
