“Learning is not attained by chance. It must be sought for with ardor and attended to with diligence.” Abigail Adams

As I read through the twenty applications for the scholarships to be awarded by NCHE this year, I was impressed by both the ardor and diligence that was displayed by each and every applicant. It is truly amazing what these students accomplish! Each year, I wish that we could award a scholarship to every applicant, because they all are incredible examples of homeschooling at its best.

“If I homeschool my child through high school, will they be accepted into college?” This is the most common question parents ask regarding homeschooling through the upper grades. As scholarship committee chair, I can say with confidence, yes, homeschooled students are accepted into colleges and universities. This year, the applicants for the NCHE and HINTS scholarships will be attending a multitude of colleges and universities.
