Lee's practical approach and her own success in homeschooling high school students into the colleges of their choice (with scholarships!) is encouraging and reassuring. She outlines the fundamentals for successful transcripts and homeschool course classes and descriptions to help guide the college bound student to the college of their choice.
She speaks from experience and from speaking to college admission offices all over the country. There are extensive appendixes that detail course descriptions so that a home school parent has a reliable guide with which to work from.
About the Author
Lee Binz and her husband Matt operate The HomeScholar. Their mission is helping parents homeschool high school and many of their resources are free. Lee and Matt homeschooled their two children independently for eight years, from elementary through high school graduation. Both boys earned full-tuition scholarships to their first choice university. Lee is a homeschool consultant working with thousands of parents around the world.
Lee has three core beliefs about homeschooling:
- Homeschooling provides the best possible learning environment;
- Every child deserves a college-prep education whether or not they choose to go to college;
- Parents are capable of providing a superior education to their children.
- Lee's Total Transcript Solution teaches parents how to create high school transcripts for every homeschooling style.

Here it is, in a nutshell exactly how to help yourself and your student. No college degree of your own needed. This book will assist you in properly describing a course(s), typing out the transcript with actual ones in the book and other resources you can use without paying anyone for it. All you need is in this book!
This book is just what it says it is, it explains how to keep records and create several styles of transcripts in an easy-to-understand manner. I suggest buying this book when your children are still in the middle school years, though if they're in high school it's not too late.
This book does have Christian content and while I normally shy away from books with overwhelming religious content, it is manageable in this book (don't hate, we're all allowed our opinions) and doesn't detract from the core information presented.
I have read several similar books and this is far and above my favorite. It is a light, practical, easy, humorous read that has all the examples anyone could need to get started on preparing high school transcripts for their kids.
I found Lee Binz's style to be very easy to relate to and not arrogant or condescending. She has a unique way of giving several varieties of advice and then helping you feel empowered that your own choice will be the best one.
I think anybody who is even considering homeschooling a high school student should read this a year or two before their student official begins! What a time and sanity saver!
