Homeschool Families

Welcome Homeschoolers and their families!

Are you ready to take the next step in your academic career? MCC works with individual families as well as homeschooling pods and groups to assist you in becoming a college student and member of the Thunderbird family. Students who are homeschooled can take college courses while continuing their homeschool education, both as an academic venture or to take courses to just learn about new topics. Homeschool students will be part of our concurrent enrollment population. Concurrent enrollment is often used by homeschool students who do not participate in other Early College programs such as Dual Enrollment, ACE, or Hoop of Learning, and is tailored towards homeschool students 18 and under.

Classes follow the same calendar as the MCC courses do in Spring, Summer, and Fall semesters, and are available in a variety of modalities - in-person, hybrid, or online (either live or on your own time).

Benefits of taking courses with MCC include saving money, earning transferable credits to university or certificates, and acting as a bridge between homeschool and the university.
