St. Lawrence College is a wonderful local college in my town. They have great special events and work well with special needs whether they be dietary, mental or physical. The school is a smaller college that has smaller class sizes that will appeal to homeschoolers. Most teachers are on a first name basis with their students. For religious students there is a prayer room, regardless of the religion. There is a doctor on campus available to all students.

As specified on their website they do accept homeschoolers. From the site, on admissions requirements, "St. Lawrence College evaluates applications from home-schooled students on an individual basis. Applicants should supply detailed information about the curriculum and the methodology used in acquiring the knowledge they have. Any standardized tests that have been taken should also be provided. The College may require further pre-admission testing."
Unfortunately the admissions office was unable to get back to me in time for this post, but they can be reached at (Cornwall) 613-933-6080, press 1 or 1-800-463-0752 (Kingston/Brockville) for more information.
Waterview Homeschool recently sponsored a cart race for the school for my sisters class. Lots of great fun, but also counted toward the participants grades as they had to pitch marketing details to the "Dean's Den" and secure sponsorship and actually build a cart and compete in the race! This is the event highlighted in this post.
