We are Home School Friendly

Georgia Southwestern welcomes home schooled students. Our First Year Experience program along with our small school atmosphere is a perfect environment for home school students to continue their education. Students with a diploma from a regionally accredited home study program or a diploma from the Center of the Accrediting Council for Independent Study (Georgia only) will be given the same consideration for admission as a student from a public high school. Admission decision for home schooled students from other programs through non-accredited schools will be made based on the criteria below. Please print the packet with the checklist and other necessary forms.

Home School Packet 

  • Completed application with the $25.00 non-refundable application fee.

  • Official transcripts from any conventional public/private high school and colleges attended.
