Home-Schooled Applicants

We welcome first-year applications from students completing a home-school curriculum. As a home-schooled student, your application process and requirements are the same as any other first-year applicant to the College. The process begins by completing your application through the Common Application.

  • Have you completed lab science courses? How were they taken?
  • What texts did you use? What about online resources or learning communities?
  • Who evaluated your work and overall learning progress?
