LOL Students and College


92% of LOL seniors go on to college

LOL students have been accepted at over 40 colleges nationwide. Not only do they get accepted easily, but LOL students are successful in college. They find that the independence and self-motivation they gain as homeschoolers are real assets. Former students comment that their non-traditional education—where they interacted with far more than just peers—helps them feel comfortable approaching professors and supervisors. We recognize that college is not the only route for a student; our students who have not gone on to college have found satisfying careers.
