* Son Gohan from ''DragonBallZ'', due to living in an isolated mountain clearing; when he chooses to go to a formal high school, he has to fly to the nearest city every day. He fits the stereotype of being incredibly sheltered, to the point that he doesn't seem to understand that baseline human teens can't jump twenty feet in the air unassisted, but he's kind and friendly enough that people are mostly willing to overlook his oddities.

Added DiffLines:

* Erich Frühling from ''Manga/TheHeartOfThomas'' has spent his childhood at home with private tutors. As the NewTransferStudent at a boy's boarding school, his classmates find him spoiled, rude, and [[OedipusComplex overly attached to his mother]]. Another student has to intervene when Erich's first encounter with CorporalPunishment ends with him ''attacking the teacher''.

Added DiffLines:

* Emil from ''WebComic/StandStillStaySilent'' was educated by private tutors and able to tailor his curriculum. Something was quite obviously done wrong, because his grades dramatically dropped when he entered the public school system after his family underwent a RichesToRags episode (Emil blames the school system for this). He also doesn't know any Icelandic, which is supposed to be a mandatory subject for academics in that world. Among the six main characters, Emil comes across as third most educated at best, behind TheMedic (who doesn't have an actual doctorate) and a Finnish desk worker just a couple years older than he is (Finns are supposed to not be that well educated in this world), who both know Icelandic among other things that Emil does not. The three that are less educated than Emil didn't get an academic education to speak of.

Added DiffLines:

* The children of ''Series/RaisedByWolves'' are all home schooled, though the fact that we never see them being taught anything makes it something of an InformedAttribute.

* WordOfGod describes ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'''s title character as homeschooled, but it's a bit of an odd example--the Crystal Gems don't seem to know what "school" ''is,'' and just kind of teach [[TagalongKid Steven]] informally.

to:

* Dian Curtis Regan's ''Literature/MonsterOfTheMonthClub'': Main protagonist Rilla Harmony Earth started being homeschooled because of her mother's beliefs (Sparrow Earth is a "back-to-nature" type), though she does get together with other homeschooled kids for field trips and special events.



* Very extreme example in ''Series/LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit'', where two brothers are homeschooled because their obsessive, possessive and controlling mother wants them until her complete control. She winds up manipulating the older boy into killing his own brother to keep social services from taking him away.

To many modern children and teenagers, the homeschooled kid is something of an enigma. Do they ever leave their house? Is there something wrong with them? How do they make friends if they can't go to school? And that most offensive of questions, Do they have lives?

* Owen Cronsky in ''LessThanPerfect'' was homeschooled by his parents, and there were a few jokes made about it(like Claude and Ramona being surprised that he had an actual graduation ceremony), but it's still one of the more positive examples of this trope, as Owen turned out fairly succesful from the experience.
