Homeschooled Students

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

Applications requirements:

  • A completed application for admission
  • An essay or graded paper
  • Your SAT I or ACT scores
  • A description of your homeschool program with detailed information about coursework completed and the home school’s accreditation agency
  • A recommendation from your primary instructor evaluating objectively your preparedness for college. If your primary instructor is a parent, then we require an additional recommendation from someone else who can comment on your 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. As with 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 filed their 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.
