Homeschoolers Score Higher on ACT

Friday, 19 August 2005 12:00 AM

The 8075 homeschool graduates who took the ACT college entrance exam this year comprised about 1 percent of those who took the exam.

According to ACT, a 22.5 score is significantly higher than the national average and homechoolers have maintained their success over the eight year period they have taken the exam.

"Homeschoolers consistently score above the national average," said ACT spokesman, Ed Colby.

Homeschooling is not a short-term phenomenon. It is growing between 7 and 15 percent per year and an estimated 2 million children are homeschooled. In addition, homeschoolers consistently score above their peers on standardized achievement tests. The new ACT scores confirm this trend.

Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA) is a 22 year old, 80,000 member non-profit organization and the preeminent association advocating the legal right of parents to homeschool their children.
