My Homeschool Transcripts™ (MyHST) was developed beginning in 2007 by Steve Sensenig, a homeschool dad. At the time, Steve and his wife Christy were homeschooling their son (who has since graduated) and this application developed out of their own need to track his progress and prepare transcripts.
Our philosophy while developing this application has been simple: Every homeschool is unique, and the process of tracking high school records/grades, etc. is unique for each school. So the application needed to be extremely flexible to allow for just about any type of homeschool situation.
Need to adjust your own grading scale? Need to print a transcript by subject, rather than by year? Need to create your own custom subject names and class names? Need to keep track of lots of information about each class and print a report of course descriptions for each class a student has completed? Need to calculate a cumulative GPA and a projected GPA based on current grades? Need to print a transcript at 2:00 in the morning??
Well, now, there really is an app for that!
While there are a few software programs available from other vendors that allow you to generate transcripts for your homeschool, MyHST is one of only two or three available for use through a web browser (allowing you to use the application from any computer available to you). Additionally, MyHST is the only web-based transcript program that does not require you to pay an annual fee to access your own data. A one-time license fee of $39 grants you access to the application for use with your homeschool (no limit on the number of students you have in the system, as long as they are part of your homeschool), and that access is for life!
Furthermore, our research indicates that no other homeschool transcript program allows the amount of customization that MyHST allows. In other programs, you are often limited to their definitions of subjects and classes, and anything you want to do outside of that is relegated to the area of “elective". With MyHST, you control every subject and every class, decide on the exact graduation requirements for each student within your homeschool, the number of grading periods per year, etc.
