从家到新视野

正规网赌软件排行榜schooled students are as competitive for appointment to the United States 空军学院 as any other applicant and must meet the same standards as students coming from traditional school settings. There are many ways homeschooled students can strengthen their applications and prepare for life at the Academy.

标准化考试

In the absence of graded coursework completed at a public or private high school, we place greater weight on standardized ACT and SAT scores. Familiarize yourself with the scores we look for and review all college admissions testing options. 有关详细信息,请参见 学术要求 录取的因素.

课程目标

To be competitive for an Academy appointment, we recommend your home school curriculum include the following courses:

  • 中文:四年
  • 大学预科数学:四年
  • 社会研究:三年
  • 科学:四年
  • 现代外语*:两年
  • 计算机科学:一年

*We look for modern foreign languages with an emphasis on strategic languages such as Arabic, 中国人, 日本, 西班牙语, 德国, 法国, 葡萄牙语和俄语. While not a modern foreign language, Latin is acceptable. American Sign Language is not an acceptable course.

In addition to the above curriculum items, a background in laboratory sciences as well as some proficiency in typing will be beneficial.

重要的文档

Be sure to let us know if your homeschool is recognized by your local school board or the State Board of Education.

大学预科课程

尽管没有必要, we encourage homeschooled students to take some college or junior college courses. In addition to demonstrating your potential in a college setting, doing so will enhance your chances of adapting to the highly structured life of an Academy cadet, 你需要预约吗.

课外活动

This is the portion of the application process we use to predict leadership potential. Although many homeschooled students are able to qualify academically for admission, they are often weak in the area of extracurricular activities. For more on extracurricular activities appropriate to a competitive application, see 如何准备. For more on the Extracurricular Composite Score, see 学术要求.

体育运动

We place a great deal of importance on athletic participation when considering an applicant’s overall potential to succeed at the Academy. 看看这些数据:

  • About 95 percent of accepted candidates have participated in high school sports.
  • About 80 percent have earned varsity letters.
  • Without some athletic participation in an organized and sanctioned league sport, your chances of getting an appointment are greatly reduced.

Some states and local school districts allow homeschooled students to participate with public school children in interscholastic activities.

If this is not the case where you live, then here are some suggestions:

  • 游泳、网球或体操
    Join a local club and participate in competitions.
  • 棒球
    Play in a summer league affiliated with Babe Ruth, Travel Team, American Legion, etc.
  • 跟踪/越野
    跑5公里和10公里比赛.
  • 篮球
    Join a team at your local YMCA or Boys & 女孩俱乐部.

 

其他课外活动

Participation in nonathletic extracurricular activities is another important part of making sure your application to the Academy is competitive. Little or no participation in this area will greatly reduce your chances of being accepted.

质量领导

We’re primarily looking for demonstrated leadership rather than simply participating in many activities, such as serving as a club officer or earning Eagle Scout, the Girl Scout Gold Award or a Billy Mitchell award.

You can also check with your local school system to see if they allow homeschooled students to participate in their after-school activities or contact your local homeschool organization for further assistance.

You may also find helpful information at your public library or in local bookstores.

以下是一些建议:

  • 社区服务
    Work or perform community service through church or community organizations.
  • 教会组织
    Participate in leadership of church youth group.

Depending on where you live, some of these activities may not be readily available. In such cases, it may be necessary to go to a neighboring community in order to participate.

It is important to note that transition to cadet life is a challenge for everyone. Applicants need to be prepared for the diversity and wide spectrum of beliefs and world views of other cadets.

You can request more information about the academy by mailing a request or calling:
