Curriculum Bundle: Financial Literacy, Human Development, Intro to Psychology, Career Exploration, Early Childhood Education to POWER UP THE TRANSCRIPT
Starting today, you can save cash while you create a
Powerful homeschool transcript
Homeschool parents need to be aware of ways to power-up the homeschool transcript. Their homeschool high schooler’s courses need to be college-attractive while broadening their life experiences and developing their skills and interests.
One of the best ways to create a powerful homeschool transcript is to avoid generic courses where possible. Instead, have your high schooler take courses that will add *sparkle* or *pop* (as college advisors often call those).
For instance, instead of generic World History on the transcript, a powerful homeschool transcript would show something more individualized or geared to an interest area. To power-up the homeschool transcript, History and Philosophy of the Western World is a much better choice.
To help homeschool high school students power-up their transcripts, 7 Sisters has gathered all our power-up texts into one Power-up the Transcript Curriculum Bundle.
AND to help you create a powerful homeschool transcript, we are offering the Power-up the Transcript Bundle for 20% off the individually-priced texts…it’s like getting one book free!
PLUS with the Power-up the Transcript Bundle, you will receive a sample year-by-year schedule of the 26 credits your homeschool high schooler needs for graduation (the short-term goals for your school) – all at 20% savings.
The Power-up the Transcript Bundle contains:
- Human Development from a Christian Worldview (My teens’ homeschool health credit, learning about the ways people grow and change from womb to senior citizen. Not only for a powerful homeschool transcript but ALSO great for any teen who currently lives in a family and needs to understand why family members do what they do and who will someday have a family of their own.)
- Introduction to Psychology from a Christian Perspective (Earn the social science credit that many colleges want in a fun and inspirational format.)
- Financial Literacy from a Christian Perspective (This interactive, practical course is one of the most popular courses in our local homeschool group classes. My kids learned so much more than blah Consumer Math with Sara Hibbard Hayes’ Financial Literacy from a Christian Perspective.)
- History and Philosophy of the Western World- A Christian Worldview Study (Philosophers run the world in a behind-the-scenes manner. In a fun, light-hearted way, this unique world history course explains thinkers and world changers and the cultures in which they lived, including some church history, also.)
- High School Career Exploration Bundle (This comprehensive, Christian worldview curriculum starts with exploring God’s will, covers discovering gifts, talents, interests, and even covers mission statements and resume writing…and MORE.)

Very early exposure to the Gospel and Christ’s love is important for children. With more and more preschoolers in Early Childhood Education placements these days, this mission field is becoming more and more vital. There is a great need for missionaries to our youngest children!

What are homeschool parents saying about History and Philosophy of the Western World? (formerly titled: World History and Philosophy; only the name has changed – the content is the same!)
“This fall my daughter utilized the Chronicles of Narnia for the first semester as well as the World History and Philosophy. Both courses provided questions that went beyond “give me the details of the story” and required her to think. She needed to provide supporting material for her answers. In addition, these courses have improved her writing and knowledge of the bible.” – Jeanette S.

What are homeschool parents saying about Human Development from a Christian Worldview?
“7sisters curriculum has been exactly what we needed for our high school students. We have a freshman, sophomore & a junior in our homeschool high school. We used the human development course as part of our health curriculum. All three of our students took it together. Two of them pursued the honors level and our oldest chose to follow the basic level. It held all of their attention and they all learned so much from it. It allowed for honest discussions and left room for exploration. They were all able to choose activities that fit their own personal learning styles.” – A.C.

What are homeschooling parents saying about Introduction to Psychology from a Christian Perspective?
“As a psychology minor myself, I was looking for a course that allowed my daughter to think for herself, but would give her guidance. This course did exactly that. Since taking the course, she has had the opportunity to talk with a psychology professor (from a secular world view) on several occasions. The professor is impressed with how well she articulates her thoughts and how well she understands basic psychology.” – A. Cook
“Just taking a minute to let you know I have enjoyed using your Intro to Psychology course in our homeschool co-op this past semester. The content was excellent, and the material was laid out in a very user friendly format; both student and teacher editions. The cost was very affordable for the students. I will certainly be returning for additional courses.” – Betty H.
“My daughter and I just finished the Introduction to Psychology from a Christian Perspective curriculum and we enjoyed it very much. Thank you for all that you do in providing curricululm for our students!” – Stephanie B.
“I appreciate the thought that has gone into the creation of this curriculum. This curriculum helps me to provide this experience in a manner that reflects my beliefs. A dry sponge absorbs a lot. A wet sponge cannot absorb much at all. Introduction to Psychology from a Christian Perspective enables me to ‘fill the sponge’ before my children encounter psychology courses in college. I have also enjoyed the conversations that have arisen from the enrichment activities. To date, two of our children have taken the course.” – D. Harper

Philosophy in 4 Questions
Why should your homeschool high schoolers earn philosophy credit for their transcripts?
Philosophy in 4 Questions
Don’t graduate without it! Philosophy in 4 Questions is one of the most important courses a homeschool high schooler can use for a powerful transcript and life preparation. Here’s why:
- Philosophers run the world- your teens need to become aware of the ideas running the world. (You just don’t notice it. Philosophers are the brains behind political decisions, health care management, types of books we read, fashions we enjoy, even some of the ways we interact with our theology.)
- Teens who recognize philosophic thoughts and trends can become culture creators themselves.
- God is a philosopher. Philosophy is the love of wisdom. God said to “get wisdom”. God is the creator of wisdom. It is important for our teens learn to be wise and submit their thinking to God’s wisdom.
Dr. Micah Tillman teaches Philosophy at University of Maryland, George Washington University, and McDaniel College. He wrote Philosophy in 4 Questions at the request of some homeschool high schoolers to help them understand the basics of philosophy.
In Philosophy in 4 Questions, Dr. Tillman broke the 4 basic questions of philosophy into bite-sized, understandable chunks:
- What is there?
- How do we know?
- What do we do about it?
Written in a light-hearted, fun manner and a Christian worldview, Philosophy in 4 Questions helps teens learn to recognize, think about, and discuss these questions. Lessons are short, easy to digest, and include lively examples.
Philosophy in 4 Questions is a favorite course for homeschool high schoolers who want to learn to think and become culture creators.
Don’t let your teens’ God-given thinking abilities go to waste! Let Dr. Micah Tillman give them the tools to become a generation of Godly philosophers in whatever career they pursue.
Text includes a separate answer key and guide for writing an optional philosopher’s paper.

Philosophy in 4 Questions
I really enjoyed the text book because often times when dealing with uncomfortable or serious topics Dr. Tillman would incorporate some humor and it made the subject a little easier to digest. Philosophy has always been a great thing to study in my mind. It helps me think more clearly and it teaches me to never settle for the easiest option, and Tillman’s text book certainly made me think a lot. I thoroughly enjoyed reading through and completing this text and I would suggest it to anyone who feels inspired to delve deeper into what they believe about the world.– James, 11th grade when he completed Philosophy in 4 Questions.
The course was super fun, and the material had so much depth. Learning not only the different schools of thought but their origins, and of their followers opened my eyes to further understand the people and circumstances around me. Breathing new life in what I thought were worn out doctrines.– Jonah, 10th grade when he completed Philosophy in 4 Questions
