Maclay School welcomes the opportunity to review the unique profile offered by homeschooled applicants. In addition to the Applicant Information Form, Extracurricular Recommendation, Testing, Student Essays, and optional Parent Statement, please submit the following information to assist the Committee in their review:
School Report Form: In place of this form, the adult(s) responsible for the homeschooling of the applicant should submit the following documentation:
Philosophy - What philosophy or state law guides your approach to homeschooling? How long has the applicant been homeschooled? Are there other siblings or students involved?
Curriculum - What texts and resources have been used last year and this year in the applicant's homeschooling experience? Please provide syllabi, if available. To facilitate our review of coursework completed, please list the last two years of covered subjects in a one-page format similar to a traditional transcript. Transcripts: Please submit grades for the last year of academic work plus current grades to date. Grades may be in alphabetic, numeric, or narrative form. Also, include grades for any classes taken or being taken at other academic institutions. Please submit official documentation and grades relating to any online courses.
English and Math Recommendations: It is appropriate for the parent to complete the recommendation form if he/she is the teacher.
Outside Recommendations: Please submit additional letters of recommendation from adults, other than the homeschool teacher, who are familiar with the applicant's academic ability.
