  1. Wow! That does put alot of us at ease, but is there a reason why the parents didn’t type it up? 🙂 I also presume his college entrance paper and/or interview were excellent.

  2. Thanks, Susan! This sample is really helpful, and it puts my mind at ease! I watched sooo many videos. No more! I am just going to finally get this transcript done!

  3. A visual example is wonderful – thank you!! Although it may not be significantly different, I couldn’t help but notice that the transcript is dated from 2009. As it’s now 10 years later, I wonder if there’s a more current example that could be posted? Undoubtedly there are many Forum contributors who have graduated their students – maybe a couple would be willing to share theirs? 🙂

  4. This is quite helpful! One question- the history credits don’t seem to totally coincide with the trivium plan laid out in WTM. High school is heavier on American History in this example, and I do believe most states require some local government credit. Thinking ahead here, but how do I complete 3 cycles in light of this? Thank you!
