Homeschool Students

We value individualized, Christ-centered education as much as you do. At Montreat College, you’ll be able to stretch your mind, deepen your faith, and prepare for your career, all in the beautiful foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. We integrate faith and learning in every discipline, always seeking to graduate students who are agents of transformation, renewal, and reconciliation. Montreat College has a large and growing homeschool student population. Check out our list of homeschool benefits below, and make plans to visit campus soon!

Homeschool Friendly

Not only do we have a large homeschooled student population, but we also provide flexible admissions for homeschooled students through our dual-enrollment program and test-optional application.

Homeschool Scholarship

Montreat College now offers $10,000 scholarships to homeschool students! This scholarship is awarded over a four-year time period in $2,500 annual increments, and is available to First-Time students who were homeschooled during 9th, 10th, 11th or 12th grade. To be eligible, students must answer “Yes” to the homeschool question in the Financial Aid Opportunities section of our free application for admission, and submit an official homeschool transcript as part of their application file. Visit for a complete list of institutional aid opportunities.

Test Score Flexibility

Montreat College’s application for traditional undergraduate admission is test-optional. Our institution accepts the ACT, SAT and the CLT as college entrance exams mainly for Honors Program consideration. The CLT (Classic Learning Test) is a popular test of choice for our homeschool applicants, as it draws on the educational principles that have inspired many families to educate their children at home.

Small Class Sizes

We pride ourselves on keeping our class sizes small. With a 13:1 student-to-faculty ratio, you will never be a number, you will be known by name. Our students receive individualized attention from their instructors who want them to grow both spiritually and academically.

Honors Program

Many homeschool students are well-equipped to apply for and participate in our interdisciplinary Honors Program. The Montreat College Honors Program is a community of students and faculty who support and challenge one another’s intellectual and spiritual growth. Our curriculum is oriented towards a Christian vision of flourishing, both for humanity and creation. Scholarship opportunities are available including full-tuition awards! Please visit the Honors Program page for complete information.

High School Dual Enrollment

Local high school students who are juniors or seniors can take up to 12 credits on the Montreat campus at the reduced tuition charge of $100 per credit hour. For complete information, please visit

Don’t take our word for it.
