Is your eighth-grader ready to earn high school credit for their transcript?
Many moms want to take advantage of their homeschooling freedom and get a head start on high school before their kid actually reaches it.
Is this a good idea?
I share my thoughts on this topic—when it is ok, when it’s not ok, what you should consider before granting high school credit before ninth grade—with my trademark no-nonsense information. As usual, my take on this may differ from what you’ve heard elsewhere, so give a listen and see what you think!

I just found your blog, and I’m really enjoying it. Thanks so much for the great content : ) For many of my daughter’s courses (before and during high school), I use a CLEP for her final exam. This can be used as dual enrollment college credit. It also assures me that she really is “getting it” and it’s not just wishful thinking on my part. Oddly enough – perhaps because I was a history major myself – I find the history and social studies classes the EASIEST to do early. No prerequisites : ) We also simply don’t use “grade levels” in homeschool. BTW: I forbid her to tell her friends, and I don’t share this info with local parents, to avoid the comparison trap.
