The Homeschooled Admissions policy is a system designed to assist homeschooled students in the admissions process and to allow Landmark College to make informed decisions on each homeschooled applicant.
Landmark College is a private, homeschool friendly college for students with learning differences. The College understands that there are several paths a homeschooled student may follow in order to receive their high school education, paths which may differ from state to state as well as from district to district.
If you are completing your homeschool education under the umbrella of a diploma-granting organization, you will need to provide evidence of coursework completed, level of performance (grades), and a copy of the diploma.
GED or HSED
If you have received a GED or HSED following an approved curriculum endorsed by your local school committee or Superintendent, you will need to provide your GED/HSED and your School Committee/Superintendent approved academic plan (if any). You will also need to fill out the Landmark Official Home School Transcript.
In the absence of official transcript information from a diploma granting organization or from the approving school district, GED or HSED, and statistical information, the admissions office has a difficult task assessing comparability of your educational preparedness for college level entrance. To help the Landmark Admissions Office evaluate your academic readiness, we require you to provide a portfolio of your work indicative of your academic achievement. In addition to this portfolio, you will need to complete the Landmark College Official Homeschool Transcript.
The Portfolio may include:
- Coursework or grades from classes taken from educational institutions
- AP Tests
- Achievement Test
- Recommendations from qualified tutors or teachers
- Work examples
- Independent research projects
- Writing samples: research Papers, reports, essays, or other writing examples
- Evidence of completed units in history, math, science and other academic subject areas
- Descriptions of books and other curricular materials used in your high school-level education experience
