Do most home school kids appendage up contained by community colleges or not even travel to college?

I had a home school friend admit to me that her home arts school diploma isn't worth the paper it's printed on. She have to get an Associate's Degree until that time she can go towards Bachelors.

Answers:    I'd similar to to point out that (as of 2006), slightly less than 2/3 of adjectives high college graduates go to college...and not everyone graduates from elevated school (in some districts, the dropout rate is nearly, or even over, 50%).

According to the BLS, at duplicate time we had 2.5 million old pupils, we had 444,000 dropouts (I simply want to point out that this number only includes relations who dropped out during a particular time term, so probably misses people who dropped out from in advance grades...and do keep contained by mind that dropout figures are disgracefully underreported, many, tons, many drop outs bring reported as transfers). But, I agree to use the official BLS numbers. Using newly those numbers, as well (as the 1.6 million enrol in college) we consequently get a digit of 54.3% of people who have been contained by high academy who went on to college.

And, according to the survey, in 2002 (the ultimate time it was taken), merely 45.3% of 18 and 19 year olds were surrounded by college (a similar number, 45.6%, of 20 and 21 year olds were correspondingly in college.

So, to variety a fair comparison, if 50% of homeschool former students go to college, they are doing at lowest as well as other students (and if 65% attend, later they would be doing astoundingly better than their non-homeschooled peers)...however, since no one know how many homeschoolers at hand are, it is impossible to know what that percentage is.

A simple google search revealed that, since the precipitate 90's, it was estimated that 50% of homeschoolers go on to college...with the societal change that have increased the rate at which adjectives students go on to college, the increasing easing of restrictions on homeschoolers (e.g. no more restrictions on financial aid or keeping kids out because they did not hold the 'right' diploma) and the newly friendly attitudes of many colleges, one can with the sole purpose assume that that number has gone up.
Well duh! And it's impossible to tell apart for public school diplomas. They don't scrounging much at all.

There is nil wrong with getting an Associate's Degree prior to a Bachelors. The courses are equal no matter what you are doing.

What will situation to the college is the scores on the SAT and ACT. They also appreciate AP and CLEP credits. Community colleges adopt students of all background based on the placement examination.

The diploma isn't worth much. BUT the knowledge, skills and study conduct of any student is worth its weight surrounded by gold.

BTW: My home-schooled daughter could hold easily started at the 4 year university -- but we chose to skip foreign jargon studies for high-school. She is studying Spanish in college. Her 2 yr scope is completely transferrable to the 4 yr U. -- all of her credits will travel with her and are official toward her Bachelors. The best thing give or take a few all of this is that the CC method cost far smaller number than the Univ. When she is finished she will have impossible to tell apart degree as someone that did adjectives 4 yr at the U.
No diploma, homeschool or public, is worth more than the paper it's printed on. It's a moment ago a piece of paper. A symbol, granted, but a moment ago paper.

She probably does not hold to get an AD, unless she requirements to attend a college that will not accept an transcript from homeschoolers. However, in attendance are hundreds of universities and colleges that do not require that associates scope to work on the bachelors.

Most homeschoolers go to colleges. Many of those that start within community colleges do so at the age of 16, working on both high college and college credits at the same time.
No diploma is worth the serious newspaper it is written on, whether that be one for homeschool, private school, or public institution. A diploma is merely decoration. What matter to colleges is your transcripts and test score (SAT and/or ACT).

It is sad that your friend did not receive an fair education. Perhaps she did, and she is newly dealing with an admission counselor who does not know how to handle her application lacking an accredited diploma. She should incontestably check into that further.

The percentage rate of homeschoolers that go to college is, resembling their private school counter parts, complex than the percentage rate of public schooled students that shift to college. Some do opt for community college because it suits their needs, or attend community college first and afterwards transfer to a four year college but homeschooled students also enter straight into oodles universities-including Ivy League schools such as Harvard, Stanford and Yale.

Always remember that you can not negotiator a whole group by one being in it.
Homeschool former students go to college. Ivy League school actually want them out.
As to that AA degree - an AA scope is the same as two years at a university.
Your friend wishes to do a bit more research.
I don't think she's talk to the correct people at the college. Her diploma doesn't business. What matters are her ACT/SAT score, her transcript (high school work) and her portfolio (high academy work). Perhaps she has *none* of those things surrounded by addtion to her diploma?

Lots of HS'ed kids go to community college while within high conservatory. They get dual credit that road and when they have graduate, they start off at a minimum, as a sophomore surrounded by college.

I've never heard of a college saw you have to hold an AA degree since a BS/BA. However, if it's a selective school, and she doesn't hold the things I listed above contained by addition to her diploma, next I could see them wanting her to go to a CC for two years, next transfer.
What be her ACT scores? I have a friend get into a university short completing high conservatory. She dropped out, took the ACT, made a very illustrious score and go straight to a 4 year university. Another friend of mine had to drop out due to individual homeless in lofty school. He get into a university later. Your friend should be capable of pull this sour. Where is her school and who is her tutor?
My pastor's son is getting ready to dance to the Air Force Academy. Do you know how hard it is to grasp in in that??
Well when you get a diploma though a program to be precise more or less what you might phone a "diploma mill", then it promising wont be worth the paper it's printed on, but contained by REALITY, most homoeschoolers who homeschool WITHOUT going through a public school or private recognized program do not have diplomas, and top nick universities across the nation realize this, but actively wish out and recruit them anyway.

The diploma vehicle nothing. Colleges and university don't care going on for a piece of paper that tell pretty much nothing more than the pet name of your school and the year you finished attending within. When considering homeschoolers, universities don't want to see diplomas. They want to see TRANSCRIPTS. They want to see what subjects you studied and how ably you did based on the grade system you and your parents adopted. They resembling that homeschoolers tend to study a wider variety of subjects, and recurrently go further within their studies than their peers. They want to see TEST SCORES. They want to see that you've taken the SAT or ACT, and some may like to see that you've taken the SAT II subject test as well. Statistics show that homeschoolers tend to gain very big on these standardized tests, superior even than the average public school win. Colleges like this. They want to see that you've participate in EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES, and let face it, homeschoolers hold an advantage here as they tend to finish a full day's worth of college in partially the time, and have much more time for the wide-ranging variety of comings and goings available to them through the homeschool organizations, through the community, through national programs, or through local school. Homeschoolers tend to have importantly active and productive social lives and are extremely involved in their communities. They enjoy the time for it. Some universities will also ask for a bibliography of books and materials a homeschooler used throughout his or her minor education. Some may ask for work sample or an interview or an essay, but in genus, homeschoolers have as honest a chance (if not much better) of getting into the university of their choice as public schoolers.
