We are all familiar with the old saying: “Cross your T’s and dot your I’s.” An English idiom that encourages attention to detail, this simple reminder has probably framed your work ethic since childhood. In fact, you’ve doubtless used it to exhort your own kids to labor well, to finish the job, to pay attention.
All that is well and good in the early years of the homeschool experience but by the time our kids are close to wrapping up their high school years, overworked parents are running at low ebb. Sometimes it feels that you’ve given all there is to give. However, I would encourage you to focus again on this old saying and reach deep to find the stamina to finish well.
If you’ve dedicated yourself to your children’s education, it is important to document that education so they can take the next step in life. Since we function as a school, it becomes our responsibility to provide standard school documents. For those kids heading to college, this means:
- Transcript Legend
- School Profile
- Counselor Letter
They need to be clear and concise since admissions officers have limited time to spend with our child’s folder. These four documents must answer any questions a college might have about the details of our educational choice.
In just a few days, I’ll be teaching parents how to create these documents step-by-step. In fact, I’ll give you all my trade secrets! If your child is in or close to high school, you’ll want to grab your seat in this informative class so you can rest assured that you’ve dotted your I’s and crossed your T’s!
