Homeschool Students

Homeschool Students Thrive Here

Not only do homeschool students thrive in The King’s College community, but our community thrives because of them. Eighteen percent of our student body was homeschooled. The academic success and entrepreneurial spirit that homeschooled students demonstrate make them an excellent fit for The King’s College. The typical King’s student – regardless of educational background – shares these values.

If you would like to talk to a current student at King’s that was homeschooled, or if you’re interested in having a representative at King’s visit your homeschool co-op, contact the Admissions Office.

“Educated through Classical Conversations, I grew up appreciating classic literature, discussing philosophy, and building relationships with my peers and elders. The King’s College is centered around these same ideas, and I have grown my Christian faith since coming to King’s.”

“My favorite thing about King’s is the type of students and professors it attracts. I am making lifelong friends here who are striving to live the same kind of life as me, one that glorifies and honors God, and I am being taught by professors who are striving for that as well.”

Frequently Asked Questions
  • Am I going to be the only homeschooler at King’s?

    Approximately 18% percent of the student body at King’s was homeschooled during their senior year of high school. Regardless of educational background, King’s attracts the type of student that is mature and invested in their education.

  • What is the spiritual atmosphere at King’s?

    The house, the faculty, the staff, all desire to influence students to grow in the faith. The King’s spiritual atmosphere is one of authenticity. House Bible studies, student organizations that focus on growing student’s faith, and the King’s Liturgy are just a few ways that King’s internally provides students spiritual outlets.

  • Where do you go to get groceries or do laundry or go to the doctor if you’re sick?

    Many students get their groceries at various Trader Joe’s locations. Every King’s Housing location has laundry facilities located within the building. If you ever need to go to the doctor, your housing assistant and chamberlain are the first responders.

  • Will I be able to get individual attention from faculty and staff at King’s?

    The faculty and staff at King’s make an active effort to be involved in students’ lives. In the classroom, that individual attention comes from a student to faculty ratio of 14 to 1 and an average class size of 20. Outside the classroom, that involvement comes from office hours and many faculty and staff serving as advisors to one of the ten houses in the house system.

    “Having grown up in a family where my parents prioritized relationships, I was immediately intrigued by the student-to-faculty ratio at King’s and the opportunity at hand,” says Anne Carman (PPE ’18). “Not only do the faculty list office hours, they encourage them; they do not just talk after class, they invite students to dinner.”

  • How often do homeschooled students transfer in college credits? Is it easy? Is it smart?

    King’s welcomes students to transfer in previously acquired credits and works with students individually to make sure their credits are applied to their time at King’s in the most effective way possible. Transferring in credits can be very beneficial as it allows you to take more classes that interest you while still graduating within a four year span, or you can take a lighter course load during certain semesters and have an internship or job in the city.

  • Does King’s offer dual enrollment classes so I can earn college credit while in high school?

    Yes! King’s offers dual enrollment classes online that many homeschool students take advantage of. Homeschool students receive the discounted rate of $450 per course and can take up to four dual enrollment courses online. For more information, please visit our Dual Enrollment page.
