Product Description:

High school record keeping is more important than tracking the progress of your elementary student, so the good folks that brought you the popular Homeschooler’s Journal now have a high school version. As with the Journal, the bulk of the High School Journal is devoted to the weekly lesson layout. Seven columns (vs. six for the Journal) for subjects times five rows for days gives you 40 squares to work with on each pair of pages. These squares contain seven lines for writing details (as opposed to the open format of the squares in the Journal). In the lower right is a handy chart for keeping track of hours spent per subject each week, recordable in quarter-hour increments. Since the method of study (unit studies, structured text, multiple students per subject, etc.) varies from family to family, several examples show various methods of using the weekly lesson layout to your best advantage. The only other change for the High School Journal is a “Grade Record” which replaces the “Test Score Keeper” in the Journal. Daily grades can be recorded in up to 10 subjects for up to 192 days. Other miscellaneous forms in the Journal remain unchanged.

Publisher Description:

The high school version of the journal is set up a little differently than The Homeschooler’s Journal. A few of the major changes were designed to document the educational progress of a single student in each of their high school years, so that these High School Journals would be their high school transcripts if they continued on to college.

The Test Score Keeper in the original was redesigned to allow for more pages to document grades within each subject, combined with a easy way to track their daily attendance if your state homeschooling laws require a certain number of days of education within a given school year to obtain a high school certification. Like the original journal there are 200 entry days which meets or exceeds most state attendance requirements.

Just like in the original each SUBJECT BOX can be changed on the fly, so that the same subject need not be taught each day. This allows for a greater number of subjects that can be documented on each lesson plan for that week. There is also an extra subject box for each day and within each subject box there are lines to assist in the recording information.

The lower right section of each five day lesson plan contains quarter hour clocks to allow for a unique way of tracking each 15 minute increment that a student spends in each subject during a five day period. (Some states require a set number of hours per subject per year for their accreditation of high school degree).

The Homeschooler’s High School Journal comes in five different colors: Teal, Green, Red, Yellow, or Purple. Like the original journal the cover is still jelly proof and is wire-o-bound. The journals will lay flat on your desk or can be wrapped around onto itself. If you would like a particular color please make a note in the comment section of your order.

I liked the flexible format for my student.
Lisa N on Aug 8, 2023
This planner is very easy to use. I have tried other planners and feel I spend too much time filling them out with information that I do not really need.

Jennifer R on May 12, 2021
Of all the homeschool record books, this is my favorite. I buy one for each of my kids. There are pages to record everything that needs recording like grades, daily assignments, extra projects that you might want to remember when applying for scholarships, the amount of time spent on each class each day, the resources used for each class, etc.

This is simple, flexible and makes sense to me. I like the place to jot down books read, field trips, etc.
Lois T on Sep 18, 2019
I've used this book for years and I've always loved it. It's laid out very well, and it helps me stay organized and on tract. It's also great for keeping up with your hours, and very helpful when you go to write up your transcripts.

James P. on Jul 31, 2019
I've used it many times before and I like how it's set up especially with the quarter hour tracker circles.
Debra K on Jul 27, 2019
I have used this journal to keep track of my kids for most of our homeschool years. I began with the regular journal for elementary and moved to this during high school. I love the versatility of this planner. Now I'm down to one homeschooler left with two years ago, so just ordered one for the junior year.
Justin on Jul 9, 2019
Having tried many planners over the years, this one is the easiest to follow. Has a place to record all you could possibly need to in a school year from lesson plans to grades to volunteer hours and more! Spiral allows planner to lie flat. Multiple colors available for cover help keep siblings' straight as to whose is whose. One of our favorite products over 25 years of homeschooling.
Andrea A on Jun 16, 2019
This is a fantastic way to record any and all activities. It is flexible to adapt to many different subjects and activities. I have used it for both my kids all the way through high school.
Marilyn B on Feb 25, 2019
I've used this for several years and love all of the great features for homeschool high school planning, tracking hours, etc. It's a great product!
Mary H on Nov 4, 2018
My favorite plan book over years of homeschooling! Simple and easy to use.
Donna S on Oct 2, 2018
We've used this journal/planner for several years. It's affordable, durable, and handy for tracking service hours, extra-curriculars, and shopping lists for supplies. The grid paper has no/minor bleed through from pens, and it can handle being erased and written over. The hour tracker has been helpful in tracking work load even when I'm not directly supervising studies.
User on Sep 3, 2018
My students use these journals to keep organized and accurately record their time spent in study. FergNus services created an easy to use, inexpensive and extremely helpful tool that is a must have in our schoolroom!
Rebecca M on Aug 29, 2018
Have used the regular Homeschooler's Journal when my kids were younger and it worked great. Showed this to my new 9th grader and this is what he chose for his planner
Sharon S on Aug 20, 2018
I've used this item for years, no need to look any further.
Sharon C on Aug 20, 2018
There is plenty of space for logging all school work, plus a time chart for keeping track of hours. I have tried several log books and find this one the most helpful.
Penny H on Aug 20, 2018
A great workhorse planner/journal! Some use this solely as a planner, others as a journal after the fact. Have used this one for years, since my son was in preschool. I couldn't NOT put it in my cart. I love that it has all the basics and makes recording of time easy, with quarter circles for each subject. I will probably end up using this along with the ultimate homeschool planner, this one for drafting and brainstorming, and the other for formal recording of schoolwork/family activity.
Jacqueline R on Aug 19, 2018
To keep track of my highschoolers courses and records.
Katerina G on Aug 18, 2018
I've used these for about 10 years now and love them. It's so easy to adjust your days and write in dates etc.
Justin on Aug 17, 2018
My daughter is a Junior in HS and the 5th high schooler in our family. After trying different record keeping books, we always seem to come back to Homeschooler's High School Journal.
Kathleen A on Aug 13, 2018
I have used this planner in the past. Bought a different planner for another child entering high school and had this thought, "Why in the world did I buy a different planner?" I don't remember how much I spent for the "different" planner, but I was willing to throw it away to buy THIS planner which has always worked well for me.
User on Jul 31, 2018
High school is a different beast than all the previous years, in terms of record keeping. This journal has plenty of room for a multi-subject school year, as well as a place to keep grades, and - the selling point for me - a way to track "seat time" every week, which makes tallying credit hours a breeze. Ours came with a purple cover, not red as pictured.

I have you used this planner for 5 high schoolers and it provides all the forms and pages I need.
Leslie G on Jul 24, 2017
This is my first year homeschooling and my friend has been using this for several years.
brandee g on Jul 7, 2017
Love the simplicity but have all the space I need to record all their work plus extra space for outside activities, notes, etc. Never used anything else to record all their homeschooling records.
Charlene O on Jun 28, 2017
I used this last year and really like how it is laid out. We have given up on planning and just document what has already occurred. I use abbreviations to document elsewhere in this book - methods, resources, courses. Then I reference the abbreviations in the daily log (plus a reference to lesson # perhaps) and it cuts down tremendously on the paperwork. Plus I can see and estimate how much time we are spending on each subject.

Does this have a calendar?
A shopper on May 12, 2023
BEST ANSWER: Each of the homeschool high school journals I purchased has a calendar. The calendar spans two pages that are side-by-side (i.e.; 20219-2020 school year on the left and 2020-2021 school year on the right). I do wish that the cover displayed the years covered, but does not. Simple fix by writing it in myself with a pen, however it is tricky to know which journal you are getting without the year information upfront. My last one (purchased for the 2022-2023 school year) has the above mentioned calendar in it. This was not a huge issue for me as I use a separate calendar for planning anyway. Everything else in this journal I use and appreciate.
How many weeks does this cover?
Bj on Jun 12, 2021
BEST ANSWER: This has space for 41 weeks! More than is typically needed for a school year. I have used these every year I've homeschooled and love it.
Are there other colors? I would like a different color for each child.
A shopper on Sep 1, 2020
BEST ANSWER: There are other colors. We've had purple, red, green, blue, and yellow over the years. When I've ordered several at a time, I've always received all different colors. However, I'm not sure how you would order particular colors as that option is not offered. Maybe you can add a special request.
are you currently shipping out orders?
A shopper on May 4, 2020
BEST ANSWER: 5/4/20 Yes, we are open and shipping out orders. Orders are leaving our warehouse in 2-3 business days rather than our normal 1-2 business days, however.

Best H.S. Planner Ever !
For starters it's made with quality paper stock. It has all the right fill in places you'll need for transcripts at an affordable price for each student. To keep the planner neat and presentable,I have my son write all his completed work/time on another regular
ruled planner. I later check/grade his work,then I record it all in the planner. I love the side bars for weekly piano lessons and any weekend event that counts for his education.

Perfect Record Keeping!
This record keeping journal makes keeping up with what my high schoolers are doing in their homeschool and when it's time to write their transcript, all the info you need is contained inside! I have used this with 3 children and currently my 4th. But we use it a little differently than most. Since our family always keeps me busy with lots of younger siblings and babies and toddlers, we have worked out a plan to alleviate me from having to be on top of everything, which is impossible anyway! Rather than writing out lesson plans in advance, My high schooler uses this journal as a journal to log the work she does each day after the work is done. For example if she read chapter 7 in her history book, she writes that in the
box for history. Also the side bar allows space to log music lessons, sports, field trips, community service and more! Don't do homeschool high school without it! P.S. You will need a separate journal for each school year per student.
