Guidance for a Home Schooler Starting the Admissions Process
My child is completing eleventh grade, and I’ve been house schooling her for 2 years. So she went to general public college for ninth grade after which happens to be home schooled for the remainder of senior school. I know just how to sign her up for the SAT/ACT, but the rest about university is just a bit that is little if you ask me. Will colleges just have a look at her freshman year grades since that’s whenever she was at general public school? Or will in addition they consider the grades she is given by me? And then are there any things universities consider to help make decisions on house schooled pupils since their moms and dads assign their grades (for instance, exist additional essays? Are essays/SATs weighted more, etc.?) Any advice for signing up to college being a true house schooler could be helpful.

This is often a place that is great get your specific questions answered as soon as they appear since there are lots of veteran home-schooling families who participate. You can also find large amount of information with Google in almost every part of cyberspace. That’s assuming, of course, that cyberspace actually has corners. All of it seems just about just like a black gap to ‘The Dean.’ But, yourself, here are answers to your current questions, as well as a couple other thoughts before you start falling down that hole:
