A directory of ‘real’ educational resources for the liberty-minded household. This is a community driven directory, however Parents For Liberty has given each listing its stamp of approval. We encourage you to contribute, it’s free!
We use the term ‘school’ merely because this is a common expression. Home education directory is a more accurate description of this resource.
Our goal is to create the most useful home education directory on the internet.

Designed to make transcript production and presentation easy for busy home-educating parents, the TranscriptPro software offers you much more than a mere template to fill in. As you complete each data entry field, you will be prompted to provide all of the information that education professionals require for up to 8 children.
Inge Cannon’s detailed instructions are available as “helps” for each task—simply click the box with the question mark [?] to learn about the record keeping responsibilities and options you have.
You can organize each child’s academic history with a traditional format by the year or the semester, or you can use an alternate format that highlights all the advantages of the home school tutorial method by organizing courses according to subject matter rather than chronology.
After you’ve entered your data—identification information about your student, extracurricular activities, test scores, academic history (courses, grades, and credits)—simply click the “Print” button. The new “Print Preview” option will even allow you to see your transcript on screen!
TranscriptPro will audit your academic history and point out possibilities you may need to consider adding before graduation. If all your high school records are in order, you can produce a professional transcript in less than two hours per child! If your records are “hit and miss,” TranscriptPro will help you sort them out and make you look great in the process.
