 Homeschooling and college

As children grow out of their little pants and are ready to begin

their teens, many parents wonder if they should continue with the 

homeschooling program. They fear that colleges may not give equal 

opportunities to a child educated at home. 

Many fears of this kind were put to rest when 2 homeschooled boys 

got admission into Harvard. Harvard does not require a high school 

diploma for gaining admission to their degree program. Many 

colleges are more interested in the knowledge and behavior of the 

homeschooled children rather than their high school diplomas. In 

fact, other things being similar many colleges prefer 

homeschoolers because of the diversity and richness they bring to 

their college life.

Admission requirements may vary. While some colleges require the 

child to appear for the SAT, others may need a general equivalency 

diploma. And some may not care for any tests at all. The criterion 

may vary depending on the college that you wish to apply to. But, 

college courses really do not require any high school background 

or special training. 

It is common to come across parents who frantically try to shift 

out their homeschool children to high schools because they fear 

unavailability of college admissions. But college admissions are 

open to all educated individuals, regardless of whether they are 

educated at home or at a public school.
