Hello! My name is Pat Wesolowski and I have recently been hired by Bryan College as a homeschool specialist. This job is a perfect fit for me because I have been homeschooling for more than 30 years and I love Bryan College! Two of my children will be full time students on campus this fall and my youngest son will be dual enrolled in a few classes this year.
Bryan plans to host several on-campus events that are intentionally directed towards homeschooling families. We are planning a visitation day this fall that will include a program for the teens (conducted by the Worldview Initiative), a tour of the campus, lunch in our cafeteria, and a variety of workshops for parents to attend.
Bryan College offers theatre, concerts, sporting competitions and other special events throughout the year and the public is welcome to attend. We will keep those events posted on the Facebook page. If you are in the area on a day when chapel takes place, you are also free to join us in Rudd auditorium.
In addition to the on-campus events, we are willing to come to you! I would love to come and speak to your homeschool group regarding Bryan opportunities as well as how to prepare your teen for life after high school. Another opportunity we offer is bringing the Worldview Initiative to your area to conduct a conference for yourteens, or we can do both at the same time!! If you are not familiar with the Worldview Initiative, take a look at this page: www.bryan.edu/wv In years past I traveled with the team to locations in TN, VA, GA, NC, SC, AL, and FL offering seminars to homeschooling students and their parents.
We have a Facebook page that we would love for you to join. It is called “Homeschool Students for Bryan College” and can be found at this address: www.facebook.com/homeschoolstudents
Please feel free to email, call or write me if you have any questions or if you would like to discuss any of the opportunities mentioned in this letter! Please share this information with others who may be interested in knowing more about Bryan College and the opportunities offered to homeschooling students!

You might come to Montreat College for the spectacular natural setting or for our tight-knit community. Maybe you’ve been recruited to play on one of our 17 varsity athletics teams or you’ve heard about our bi-annual Calling & Career symposium. Some students come to Montreat specifically for our Honors Program or because they want small class sizes and professors who care enough to stay in contact over time. These are all good reasons. But the best reason to come to Montreat is our Christ-centered, liberal arts education, one which emphasizes intellectual inquiry, spiritual formation, and preparation for calling and career.
Montreat College fosters an interdisciplinary learning environment that helps form the whole person. In addition to helping you acquire the essential knowledge and experience you’ll need for your future career, we also teach you how to read and think deeply and critically, how to write persuasively, how to work together well on a team.

What makes BJU the perfect fit for homeschooled students?
40% of our students were homeschooled
Excellent academics combined with affordability, countless opportunities for leadership development and cultural expansion, a caring and Christ-focused atmosphere—these are just a few of the reasons why BJU is a top choice for homeschool students.
At BJU you will enjoy top-notch academics and the caring support of faculty and staff who are committed to your long-term academic and spiritual success.
In fact, homeschool students thrive at BJU, and as a group they score a higher ACT score and earn a higher college GPAthan those educated in traditional schools.
EI has an academic element. We do not believe you can bypass the mind in order to change the heart. Courses are designed to be both intellectually challenging and heart searching. Students should come prepared for rigorous study.
EI is a school saturated in the Word of God. We believe that Scripture gives us God’s perspective on life. We unequivocally accept the inerrancy and authority of the Scriptures. Although knowledge alone is not sufficient to secure spirituality, it is the necessary starting point and must have a primary place in our lives.
EI is more than a Bible school. It is training. Disciples must master spiritual disciplines that will promote continued spiritual growth. We emphasize the practice of personal devotions, prayer, corporate worship, evangelism, and missions scheduling in large chunks of time for these vital disciplines. Simply stated, our aim is to create an environment in which seeking men and women are first brought to a deep love for our Lord and to stable faith in Him, and then are able to go out into a needy world to live “not for themselves but for Him who loved them and gave Himself for them.”
What makes Converse unique?
Converse combines room to find your own voice—in an environment where opinions are valued and sought after—with strong academic programs in the arts, sciences and education, an uncommonly low student–faculty ratio of 12:1 and a unique vision for student-faculty collaboration and research. We value being creative and collaborative in every pursuit—so much so that every student has the opportunity to participate in experiential learning while at Converse—things like internships, student research, leadership development, community service and study-travel.
Find your voice, discover your value, and develop your unique vision at Converse.
As a Christian institution, North Greenville University must maintain emphasis upon the person and work of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who was begotten by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, true God and true man, who died as the substitutionary atonement for the forgiveness of sin, was resurrected from the dead, and now reigns as the living Lord, continuing his earthly ministry through the Holy Spirit. The University is Christian when Christ is preeminent over all its thinking and conduct.
An education at North Greenville University is regarded as preparation for effective Christian service and witness. The Bible, God’s own inerrant and infallible Word, written by men prepared and superintended by His Spirit, and possessing absolute, divine authority in all matters which it addresses, is the foundation of the curriculum and the basis of the University’s philosophy of education and life. The University administration, faculty, and staff care about both their students’ spiritual well-being and academic development.
Attendance at North Greenville University is a privilege, and not a right, which may be forfeited by any student who does not conform to the standards and regulations of the institution. The University may request the withdrawal of any student at any time, which, in the opinion of the University, does not fit into the spirit of the institution, regardless of whether that student conforms to its specific rules and regulations.
