Homeschool to College

HOMESCHOOLED TEENS DO GET INTO 4-YEAR COLLEGES


Every year high school homeschoolers are admitted to hundreds of colleges in at least five countries. Those who prepare thoroughly can be admitted with full scholarships at those selective colleges that some parents daydream about their children attending.

Colleges that accept homeschoolers rely on various materials including;
1. high school grades
2. portfolios of student work
3. applicant's personal essay
4. SAT 1 and ACT scores
5. grades from open-admission community colleges, and personal recommendations.

Challenging extracurricular activities are important for nontraditional applicants and especially important for all applicants who hope to get scholarships. Admission officers that admission criteria can vary quite widely.

It is VERY important to contact the colleges your student is interested in, and collect all the information needed for ALTERNATIVE ADMISSIONS early on in their high school career. It is never too early to explore and make your contacts.

Your student's application may or may not be sent to the "all admissions" stack, but to another stack referred to as "alternative admissions." This is where an admissions officer will look closely at the student's application and recognize that the transcript may look a little different from a student who attended a comprehensive high school. This is a good thing in the competitive college admissions market.

Charter School homeschoolers are unique, and their transcript will reflect their uniqueness, strength, and education. Many selective colleges will admit anyone with scores on the SAT or ACT above a certain level and will consider other applicants based on portfolios of the applicants' academic work.




THE SHORT LIST OF COLLEGES

Colleges known to recruit homeschoolers, those that describe admission procedures for homeschooled applicants in their application materials, or those whose admission officers indicate that they would admit homeschooled applicants are marked as "[yes]." As the reconfirmation process continues, the "!!" mark will take precedence over any other applicable mark describing a school's admission of homeschoolers.
