Graduating students receive an official high school transcript for the years they were enrolled in West River Academy. It is included in the High School Diploma Program fee. The official school seal and the notation of accreditation is on the transcript. See the side bar for a sample.
International students may have the transcript notarized and certified by Apostille for an additional fee.
The family submits the course names, letter grades and number of credits for the transcript. An Excel spreadsheet formatted template will be emailed to you to use. After you fill it out and return it to us, we will give you our feedback and assist you in finalizing the transcript.
The rule of thumb for one credit is 150 hours of study/activity in an area or the equivalent of a one-year course in high school. A half credit would be given for 75 hours or a semester-long high school course. The course names can be subjects studied in a curriculum, high school class, college class, Internet class, etc. They can also be derived from knowledge gained through life experiences.
For help in selecting names for courses, please go to the Course Names page at this site. If you would like us to work with you in developing the contents of the transcript, we can set up a special consultation (for an additional consultation fee) for that purpose. The number of credits recommended for a final transcript is 25. The course distribution is generally 4 credits of English; 2-3 of History, Science and Math; 2 of PE; a half of Health and US Government; and the rest are electives.
Official grade reports and one-, two- or three-year transcripts can also be produced if the student wishes to transfer to another school or for the family's personal records. The family submits the information to be put on the transcript.
Upon request, a transcript or grade report can be sent to a school or college.
*HIGH SCHOOL SENIORS PLEASE NOTE:
Only those students who go through our High School Diploma Program are eligible to graduate from West River Academy. Students desiring a high school transcript who do not complete this Program may pay the transcript fee and receive a transcript. However, the transcript will include the following notation: "John Doe did NOT meet the requirements for graduation from West River Academy."
