Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of the study is to determine the impact of previous private, public, home, or international schooling experiences on a Quaker high school's graduating students' college entrance composite exam scores, parents' expectations, and college attendance outcomes. The study's results suggest that regardless of previous private, public, home, and international schooling experiences the research Quaker school equally prepared graduating high school students for post-secondary first year college academic success. Parent expectations for the research Quaker school graduating high school students indicated congruent preference for Quaker values for parents whose youth had previous private, public, and home schooling experiences and this preference was different from parents whose youth had previous international schooling experiences. However, parents whose youth had previous international schooling experiences valued preparedness for the future for their youth over other analyzed values. In this study high school students with previous private, public, home, and international schooling experiences were all predominately admitted to tier 1 and 2 postsecondary schools. However, significant differences were observed in the post-secondary schools that the groups attended.
