Homeschool Students

A Program Designed for Homeschool Students to Continue to the College Environment

Olivet Nazarene University proudly counts many homeschool students among its robust student body and alumni. Homeschool students often demonstrate the initiative and time management skills that are vital to maximizing the college experience. With small class sizes, accessible professors, and institutional drive to see students succeed, Olivet is an excellent place for homeschool students to flourish. 

Education with a Christian Purpose

This is more than a tagline at Olivet. Our faculty and staff strive to instruct students at the highest academic levels and guide them as they apply this learning to how they live their lives. Classroom environments are considerate, meaningful, and respectful. Professors challenge students to expand their worldviews through rigorous academics. Students are encouraged to apply their knowledge to honor God and serve others. Prayer and devotions are often integrated inside the classroom, along with campus activities. 

Healthy campus life

Olivet values the importance of cultivating a strong, family-like community. Campus housing is organized by gender to maintain safe and healthy residential experiences. Knowledgeable resident directors oversee each residential building and student resident assistants build relationships through consistent interactions with students in their dorm or apartment unit. Over 90 campus clubs and organizations give students opportunities to use their talents on campus and in the community through volunteer service. With Olivet’s 21 intercollegiate athletic teams, 20 intramural sports, and the Perry Student Recreation Center, over 90 percent of students find some way to get active and create healthy habits.

Tailored Admissions Process

Olivet’s dedicated homeschool liaison will work with you to create and finalize your high school transcript and give you guidance on financial aid. We accept most college credits from CLEP tests, AP courses, and dual credit from a number of community colleges.
