Homeschooled Students

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 who learn differently. We understand 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.

Academic Background

Diploma-Granting Organizations
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.

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). 

In the absence of  official transcript information from a diploma-granting organization or from the approving school district, GED/HSED, and statistical information, the admissions office has a difficult task assessing comparability of your educational preparedness for college level entrance. To help evaluate your academic readiness, we require you to provide a portfolio of your work indicative of your academic achievement. 

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
