Here is one way, but it changes the focus a bit. .

Though they may lack in social skills, home-schooled children are often better educated.

I don't know why you want to avoid using a conjunction either. Notice I softened the statement up a bit with "may" and "often". Depending on what you are writing, you may need to cite a source to show why you can say that these students are better educated and lack social skills.

With different punctuation.  But why not use a (not an) conjunction?
