Homeschoolers are in high demand on many campuses across the nation, but what are the best colleges for homeschool graduates? To compile the map of the most homeschool-friendly college in each state, Alpha Omega Publications reviewed five different compilations of colleges and universities with a history of accepting homeschoolers.


Just because a school is listed here doesn’t mean it’s the right fit for you! Keep in mind that almost every state offered a number of homeschool-friendly institutions, but our goal was to choose just one school per state that was consistently mentioned or received high reviews (here’s looking at you Grove City College in Pennsylvania).

It’s also important to note that while special consideration was made for religious institutions that valued faith integration, other universities were included for their prestige and/or their affordability, along with their acceptance of homeschoolers.
