More colleges welcoming home-schooled students
Unconventional education produces model students
More and more two and four-year colleges are readily accepting students from homeschooling backgrounds. These students have proven repeatedly that they are capable of academic excellence and intellectual vitality, and are welcome assets to their schools.
The book, "Homeschooling for Excellence" details Grant Colfax and his brothers' success stories of going on to procure master's degrees at Ivy League institutions.
Jonathan Reider, formerly the Senior Associate Director of Undergraduate Admissions at Stanford University says some homeschooled students do face obstacles, but is usually one of benign indifference. "I don't think anyone has caught on the fact that these are such interesting kids. The distinguishing factor is intellectual vitality. These kids have it and everything they do is responding to it." While all creditable colleges should have unbiased admission policies, home-school friendly universities include Beacon College, Bob Jones University, Bryan College, Bryn Athyn College, Columbia College, Davis College, Judson College and Troy University.
