Students who have been home schooled are eligible for admission with regular student status. There are two ways for home schooled students to demonstrate their academic readiness...

  1. Graduating with a provincial diploma: If your grade 12 studies are officially registered with your province’s Ministry of Education, the Admissions Office will need to receive an official transcript from the province. Admission to Briercrest College will be based on completion of at least three university-preparatory grade 12 courses (including one academic English course with a grade of at least 60 percent) with a minimum average of 65 percent.

  2. Graduating without a provincial diploma: Home schooled students not registered with their province or state will be considered for admission on the basis of one or more of the following assessment tools:
  • Independent third party examinations, such as...
    • SAT with a minimum score of 1150; or
    • ACT with a minimum average of 22
  • A portfolio which includes...
    • a complete list of high school subjects completed, with grades (independent third party statement of grades preferred)
    • academic writing samples
    • a résumé demonstrating work and volunterr experience
    • an educational reference

Acknowledging that each student’s educational experience is unique, we take the evaluation process seriously because we want to see each student succeed at the postsecondary level. The Admissions Office may ask for more information in order to make an admission decision and may offer acceptance with conditions until academic readiness can be achieved.

I came to Briercrest as a mature student who was very new to the faith. While I am grateful for the formal learning experiences, the relationships I formed here are what really breathed life into what I was studying.
