Homeschool Applicants

Grove City College has been ranked the #1 college for homeschool graduates. Grove City College defines a homeschooled student as one who is taught at home by his/her parents or by a group of individuals outside the traditional educational system.

Homeschooled students who have taken college classes as a supplement to their home education training and who have been accepted as freshmen, either under Early Decision or Regular Decision admission, will remain as freshmen their first year and will progress forward in class standing each year along with their peers.

Application Requirements for Homeschooled Students

  • The application
