There’s a common misconception that homeschoolers have difficulty when it comes to getting into college.
In fact, many colleges are now seeking out homeschoolers themselves, as homeschooled students tend to be excellent college students.
Do colleges accept homeschooled students?
Colleges will typically place more weight on your SAT/ACT scores if you are homeschooled. Today, more and more homeschooled students are attending colleges and are just as successful as their traditionally schooled peers.
What is the percentage of homeschoolers go on to college?
A 2016 study by the National Home Education Research Institute (NHERI) indicates homeschoolers scored between 15 and 30 percentage points higher on standardized academic achievement tests.
Do homeschoolers do well in college?
A new study published in The Journal of College Admission suggests that homeschool students enjoy higher ACT scores, grade point averages and graduation rates compared with other college students. Homeschool students finished their freshmen year with a better GPA (3.41) than the rest of their class (3.12).
Are homeschooled students more successful?
Research suggests homeschooled children tend to do better on standardized tests, stick around longer in college, and do better once they’re enrolled. A 2009 study showed that the proportion of homeschoolers who graduated from college was about 67%, while among public school students it was 59%.
