I’m so proud:


The University of California, Riverside is very proud of its association with the homeschooled community. In fact, UCR was the very first UC to actively recruit homeschooled and other non-traditionally educated students.

“The new homeschool admissions program seems to have attracted outstanding students, as we’d hoped. It looks like we’ve tapped into a pipeline of great students.”
– Frank Vahid (a professor Computer Science who helped establish the program)

UCR is my alma mater. It was a great school then. And apparently still is. It doesn’t surprise me at all that UCR is the first UC to be so welcoming to homeschoolers. Rah Rah!
