Homeschooled Students

The Homeschooled Admissions policy is a system designed to assist homeschooled students in the admissions process and 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, 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.

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, School Committee/Superintendent approved academic plan (if any), and fill out the Landmark Official Home School Transcript.

Portfolios

In the absence of either 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. Accompanying 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
