Homeschooling and Applying to College
Colleges receive increasing numbers of applications from homeschooled students each year. There are many ways in which homeschooled applicants can utilize their experience outside a traditional learning system to craft an impressive and attractive application.
LEVERAGING YOUR HOMESCHOOL EXPERIENCE
Homeschoolers should use their uniqueness to build their portfolio and transcript. In my experience with our youngest, we found our admission materials and format were much different than our homeschooling friends admitted into the same program. Which fits into the fact our kids had different styles of learning, while heading towards the same path. Colleges and universities seem highly attracted to homeschoolers.
