Homeschooling and Alternative Education Students

We know that students have lots of options when it comes to completing their secondary education. If you’ve decided to pursue more independent learning, keep reading.

Students who have pursued a secondary education outside a traditionally accredited curriculum, including homeschool and cyber school, are welcome to apply to Bryn Mawr with the addition of the following application materials.

We reserve the right to require an interview for students who are homeschooled, graduating early, or attending cyber school.


  • Transcript or evaluation of coursework
  • Curriculum description
    • Include syllabi for any self-designed courses.
  • Graded research paper with evaluator’s comments
  • Homeschool essay
    • We require an explanation of the decision to homeschool from either the student or parent/guardian

These students should complete a senior English course before matriculation.
