How Do Homeschool Graduates Compare With Others?

We’re planning to celebrate our MPE class of 2021 at this year’s graduation ceremony on May 17! Come see the success and triumphs of these young adults as they prepare for the next chapter of their lives.

If this class is like previous homeschool classes, they have a bright future ahead.

Surveys have consistently shown homeschool graduates to thrive in college, establish successful careers and households, and become active citizens in their communities.

Don’t just take our word for it! Check out this infographic for more about homeschool graduates and how they compare with their peers:

Further notes about homeschool graduates

Additionally, an increasing number of outsiders acknowledge that homeschoolers succeed in life after homeschooling.

In this article by U.S. News & World Report, “Home-Schooled Teens Ripe for College,” the reporter says homeschoolers seem to be even “better socialized” than their public school counterparts.

For example, check out this sentence – newsflash! “Myths about unsocialized home-schoolers are false, and most are well prepped for college, experts say.”

Now that more homeschool graduates are entering the workplace, people are seeing firsthand how we’ve benefited from a home education. It’s prepared us well for life after school!

We have updated this blog post, originally published in May 2015, for timeliness and detail.
