The New School welcomes applications from homeschool students. The Admission Committee does not require advanced preparation in every academic area, but applicants should demonstrate substantial work in English, history, social studies, foreign languages, mathematics, and science.
Homeschool applicants must provide the equivalent of a high school transcript, with course or subject titles, the duration of study for each title, the content of study for each title, and an assessment of performance or "grade" at the time of application. Preferably, the courses completed at home are part of a curriculum developed and evaluated by a nationally recognized diploma-granting organization or agency.
Upon completion of the homeschool curriculum, students must provide proof of high school graduation or an equivalent. We will accept an official transcript from a state homeschool association or sponsoring public high school; GED, TASC, or HiSET exam results; individual homeschool transcripts with date of completion: and certifications of completion recognized by local homeschool associations. Upon review, applicants may be required to submit additional application materials.
