ACT Test Results For Homeschoolers vs All Test Takers

ACT test results are consistently higher for homeschoolers than the composite for the average college entrance test taker. Check out this national data for each year’s graduating class since 1997.

I again caution you that the designation that someone is home-schooled is self-reported, and that we have no way of knowing how long they have been home-schooled. There may be many students who home-school until they get to high school, and these would not be included. Similarly, students who list themselves as home-schooled may have been so for only a year, and these would be included.
