Home School Scholars: Find Your Fit at LETU

At LeTourneau University, we understand home schoolers. Many of our faculty and staff home school their own children. And more than 18% of our student body were home schoolers themselves. Our campus community not only gets your learning style, but also gets you. Take a look at just some of the reasons why home schoolers in particular find their fit at LETU:

  Academic Advantages

  • LeTourneau accepts home school transcripts.
  • With small class sizes and courses taught by professors instead of teacher aides, you will get to know your major and your professors.
  • As a home schooler, you understand the value of learning through hands-on experiences. At LETU, these experiences are at the core of our courses from day one. Want to put your analytical skills to use designing the robots of the future? Or how about using LEGO robotics to help disabled children? We're all about it.
