Homeschool Students and College AdmissionsAug 19th, 2010 | By daansys | Category: Homeschooling Tips, Lead Article
So often I hear homeschoolers ask, “But what about college?” as they consider the option of homeschooling their high school students. “Will they get in?”, “Can they get scholarships?” and “What do I do to get them ready?”
For a parent those questions can be scary. We want the best for our children not just during those formative years as they grow and mature in our homes, but also as they grow and mature as college students, as young adults, young marrieds, parents and beyond.
Because of this desire, the college question is daunting for the parents of homeschoolers. We do want to ensure that our kids are taking the right courses and doing the right things to not only prepare them for college but also ensure that they are competitive.
If you have explored my website, you have likely found several success stories for Bridgeway Academy homeschoolers students who have been successful in college and beyond. But I also wanted to share some more recent success stories.
This article features a family of homeschoolers who have taken advantage of the opportunity to take college courses while in high school. For this homeschooling family and many others, the ability to work at their own pace leads to students with a passion for and desire to learn:
This next article featuring homeschooler Stevie Douglas makes it evident that homeschoolers can and do earn scholarships. Stevie will go to college on a football scholarship; many others from our Bridgeway Academy family go on with sports scholarships for gymnastics, ice skating, soccer, tennis and more, while others are honored with academic and extra-curricular activities scholarships.
If you are considering homeschooling and don’t know where to start, check out Bridgeway Academy where they walk with you every step of the way and have many success stories.
And if you are concerned about your child’s future . . . stop worrying! Homeschoolers like those featured in these articles are not the exception . . . they are rapidly becoming the norm!
