What Faculty Say
Dr. Alex Cheroske:
"I'm always impressed with home school students and their drive to learn.
The diversity of experiences enriches student learning for all."

Dr. Brian Dille:

These students are a joy to have in my college class because they question assumptions and help their classmates know how to find answers themselves."
