CLA students will apply to college as a homeschool student. Homeschool students apply to college the same way as other students but there are often additional essay questions to answer during the application process.
This is often a benefit to students because they can explain any special interests, or projects that make them a strong applicant.
The college application process is included in the Academy.
CLA students apply to UC and CSU schools as homeschool students by exception. Students applying by exception will be asked answer supplemental essay questions describing their educational experience. These questions focus on the types of 21st century skills the students have learned in their homeschool courses.

Traditionally, private colleges love homeschool students because the students have special interests or projects that will enhance the private college community. CLA students will apply to private colleges with the same application process as other students but the school may ask for additional information. Make sure to check the private school's admissions information for specifics.
CLA is not accredited by a governing body because it is a program and curriculum provider for homeschool students. This allows students to co-create the Academy curriculum. A homeschool high school diploma is recognized by all 50 states as a legal diploma.
