A RECENT PERUSAL OF HO-meschool World, the website of Practical Homeschooling magazine, revealed the following news items touting the accomplishments of homeschoolers this past year:

- A part-time homeschooler won the GSN National Vocabulary Championship and $40,000 in college scholarship funds.

- A homeschooler won $50,000 in scholarship money as an Intel Foundation Young Scientist award winner.

As we complete work on our forthcoming book on U.S. boarding schools, we continue to be struck by the talent, diversity, and preparation of the boarding school students we encounter. They are typically mature socially, involved in several activities at a deep level, and taking advantage of an enriched and exciting academic program.
