15 Key Facts About Homeschooled Kids in College

In recent years, homeschooling has seen a rise in popularity, with more and more parents deciding to educate their children not at a traditional school but at home, typically with a parent as instructor. But just like traditional classrooms, homeschool doesn't last forever, and homeschooled students at some point will have to get ready to move on to college. Things are easier for homeschooled college students today, but in the past, these students were plagued by difficult admissions, culture shock, and more. Now, homeschool students often enjoy easier admission, better college performance, and even the opportunity to enter college with several credits already earned. Read on, and you'll find out more about what the homeschool college student experience is like today.

There have been times that I thought about home schooling.Fortunately my children are in a great school district with (for the most part) awesome teachers....though I would not hesitate to homeschool if by chance I needed to . It's good to know that college wouldn't be such a difficult transition if I did decide to home school.
Blessings, Joanne

The idea of being homeschooled/unschooled has always interested me, but I am neither of those things. I go to normal, public school.

Well, okay, it's an all-girls school with uniforms, but you get the idea.

The difficult thing my daughter found when she moved from homeschooling into a traditional primary school - we stopped travelling and I had to get a job - was that the work was no longer exactly at her level and she found that frustrating and boring. But she adpated to the time wasting that happens in a normal school. As an only child she needed the sopcial side of it too.
