I received this question:

My son is transferring schools this academic year (’18-’19) and his new school does not offer Latin.  He used Lingua Latina for Latin I during his freshman year at his old school and I have been searching online for a suitable course.  Your philosophy and enthusiasm for learning seem to match that of his previous Latin instructor and he would be excited if we could arrange from him to continue his study of Latin.

Have any students of your online students been awarded high school credit in the past?  How difficult would it be for a student to succeed in learning Latin if they were only able to watch the recordings of your classes?  

Thank you for your time.

Here is my reply:

As for the recordings, I have quite a few students who use the previous classes only.  In fact, many prefer this as they can move at their own rate.  Students are always welcome to contact me if they have any questions.

I could reply to the credit question.  Or, I could let someone else handle this one for me.  This response, by Susan Wise Bauer, is the best response I have seen:

Although some colleges are happy to accept portfolios for homeschool applications, most insist on a regular transcript—and almost all financial aid departments require a transcript form before they will disburse aid. So fill that piece of paper out—it’s important!
