Even before college, home school parents and students can take advantage of Liberty University Online Academy (LUOA), offering courses for elementary and high school students (grades 3-12) with an emphasis on individualized learning. LUOA was created to provide students the support of a traditional, residential academy while enrolled in a technology-based home school academic program.

How to Make a Transcript

Colleges expect transcripts to reflect high school courses taken, as well as some kind of evaluation for each course. As you prepare your home-schooling records, you should reflect all courses completed, credits earned or hours spent, and the letter grade earned. Try to organize chosen courses according to grade level, even if it doesn't conform to the exact format or time frame of your educational process. The more recognizable you can make your transcripts for the college who may review them, the better. Below we have provided a few examples of an acceptable transcript, as well as our curriculum requirements.
