Home School Applicants

BU encourages applications from students with a wide variety of backgrounds, including home school students. It is important to note that we maintain the same academic standards for all applicants, however, we acknowledge that the transcripts of home school students may be different than those of traditional high school students.

Along with their applications, home school students should submit as much information as possible describing their curriculum, which may include course descriptions, texts read, and skill levels completed. While these are not requirements, this information can be very helpful to the Board of Admissions as we examine a student’s ability in the five academic areas of math, science, social science, English, and foreign language.
