My Home School Grades: Mosaics Review

We don’t keep track of grades in our homeschool.   In Ohio, where we live, the laws are pretty good.  We do not have to submit grades but do have to do an assessment every year.   But since my son is starting high school this year, I know that it is going to become a necessity for his high school years.  Most colleges require a transcript even for homeschool children.

I was asked to review My Homeschool Grades through Mosaics Review and this couldn’t have came at a more opportune time.    I was given a lifetime subscription for doing this review.  I am so blessed to receive this. 

Griffin started doing high school work a few months ago even though he is officially still in 8th grade.   So it is time to get serious about grades and transcripts. 

My Homeschool Grades was founded by John Echols and Jordan Shute.  John is a homeschool dad so he knows what he is talking about.   It is an easy to use tracking service that allows you to add and record grades and other data for your students.  You can either enter a number grade or a pass/fail.    It keeps track of credits which will be great for high school. 


There is a lot I like about the program.   It is very user friendly.  Easy to use and even though there is a tutorial, you probably won’t need it.


You can use it on any computer, tablet or smartphone.  I love that there is an app.  I feel like very good program has to have this to compete in today’s world.

Because of this you can use it anywhere you are.   It is great to keep track of extracurricular activities when they occur so you don’t forget about them

You can add pictures so you can have a scrapbook sort of collection right on the app.

There is a 14 day trial offer so you can try My Home School Grades and see if it is right for you and your family.

The price is excellent at $49.99 for a lifetime subscription.  This allows you to use it for every child in your family.
