Homeschool + College 


Wichita Area Technical College (WATC) provides a fantastic opportunity for homeschool students to expand their knowledge, skills and diversity by offering what they can’t experience at home. The labs and hands-on involvement and experience available at WATC is unlike any other college.

Higher Learning Commission Mark of AffiliationWATC offers more than 75 programs of study, many focused on science, engineering and technical occupations. Accredited by the Higher Learning Commission, general education courses like Algebra, Psychology, History and many others are easily transferred to four-year colleges like Newman, Wichita State, Kansas State and many others.

Although WATC is the fastest growing college in Kansas, classroom sizes are kept small.  With an average of 19 students per class, individuals are able to get to know and connect with their peers and instructors. We welcome cohort-based classes and are prepared to adapt to specific educational needs.
