Home Schooled Students

Albright has traditionally attracted home schooled students because of our small classroom sizes and nurturing environment. The College requires the same application information and high school curriculum from home schooled students as it does from students applying from traditional high schools. However, we often need some additional information to provide clarity about the courses or curriculum a student has completed.

Application Requirements:

  • Application for admission
  • Essay or graded paper
  • SAT I or ACT scores
  • Description of home school program with detailed information about course work completed and the home school's accreditation agency
  • Recommendation from the student's primary instructor, evaluating objectively the student's preparedness for college. If the student's primary instructor is a parent, then an additional recommendation is required from someone other than a parent who can comment on the student's readiness for college.

Test-Optional Statement for Homeschooled Students


Albright College respects and commends families who make the personal investment in their children’s education by choosing to homeschool their children.  Similar to secondary schools throughout the country, no two homeschooling situations are alike.  Because of this, the Admission Office treats all homeschool admission applications individually.  Students wishing to apply test-optional may make an appeal to do so after they have made application and supplied the Admission Office with the necessary academic information.  Upon review of the file, the Admission Office will decide if it has enough information to accurately evaluate the student’s predicted success at Albright or if additional information is necessary
