Home-schooled kids outperform their peers

From the Buffalo News Staying home for school is a growing trend.

Since so many home-schooled students are high achievers, small colleges and large universities are courting them more vigorously every year.

At Columbia College, a small private school in Missouri, the admissions department has a counselor assigned directly to home-schooled students. “The home-school students we see coming here are certainly very elite students,” said Kathy Monnig, the Columbia counselor. “Probably the biggest difference we see in [them] is they are a lot more successful at the college level because they’re already used to working independently.”
