MorningStar      Christian School

  Reflecting the light of the Bright Morning Star

MorningStar Christian School is here to serve our high school families! We desire to help you through the process of Transcript and Bright Futures Scholarship Preparation. It is the responsibility of the parent to provide accurate information, on time, to our staff so we can prepare the proper forms in a timely fashion.

Required High School Paper Work

Our families work hard to provide a quality education for their their students and MorningStar wants to make your student's work shine on College applications. Therefore, we require our high school parents keep a copy of their student's Portfolio and Curriculum List, as well as a copy of the student's Volunteer Hours, Awards and Activities for use in Transcript and Bright Futures preparation. Colleges may ask for a copy of the books the student have read, or even a resume', which would include the student's Awards and Activities in their enrollment application. It is to the family's advantage to keep a record of ALL of this documentation. Please see the forms section of this page for downloadable forms.

MorningStar requires it's families to submit updated Transcripts/ Bright Futures Worksheets EACH Year, in order to reduce the stress of Senior Transcript preparation, for the family, as well as our staff. In order to facilitate this process, MorningStar now requires that each high school family update all forms during a Consultation between May 15 and August 1st. In addition to the forms in the Consultation packet (available below), you will be required to show our staff the student's portfolio.

MorningStar will prepare a professional, official transcript, which it will submit to colleges for you. The parent can NOT submit a copy of the student's transcript to a college. Please read the below information, and take note of additional fees and deadlines during your high school years.

Transcript Information


MorningStar prepares professional transcripts, which have been accepted by a variety of colleges in many states. Although our parents submit Transcript Worksheets to our staff, it is the responsibility of MorningStar Christian to mail a copy of your official transcript to the college/s of your choice.

Parents must submit updated Transcript/Bright Futures Worksheets by August 1st  each year. For your convenience, only one form will need to be submitted to cover both Transcript and BF submissions. Failure to submit the form in a timely manner will result in a $25 late fee. If you are planning on applying for a Bright Futures Scholarship, then you need to make sure your transcript titles and Bright Futures Course Code titles match. Otherwise your student may not get credit for some classes and may be denied a Bright Futures Scholarship. (See Side Bar.)

All Transcripts are mailed via UPS in order to have a reliable tracking number and verification that your Transcript has been delivered. Each Transcript mailed will have a $12 fee to cover the cost of mailing the Transcript.
