Benefits Of Keeping Transcripts:

Good Driver Discounts on Insurance

Use as his/her report card. Most insurance companies grant a discount to young drivers who maintain a B-average.

Employer Screening and Security Clearance

Many employers request high school transcripts to document skills and background that will be valuable in their workplace. A employer might require the high school transcript as a form of security clearance that your teen is the person he claims to be.

Eliminates the requirement of a GED

“General Educational Development Test" was first created for GI's. Now many young adults take this test to show their achievement of equivalent high school mastery after dropping out of their school responsibilities as teens.

Some home educators have used this tool to avoid the high school record keeping responsibilities that are attached to the compulsory attendance laws in every state.

Needed for College Entrance

Colleges and other post-high school institutions generally require a transcript from your child in order to consider him for admission.
