Homeschool Laws by State

Homeschool Laws by State

Knowing your state law regarding homeschooling is extremely important. There are plenty of websites that “condense” and “simplify” these laws, but they often neglect to name the statute where the actual law can be read. This can sometimes create a bad case of Telephone (remember that game?). Or worse, those simplified resources are out-of-date! Yikes!

But where are your state laws? Even if you Google “homeschool statute” for your state, which parts apply to your situation? No one wants to read 239487924 words (why are they so wordy?!) when most of them are irrelevant.

To help you save time and frustrations, we compiled this list of quick links for you to easily find your state’s homeschool laws on the US Department of Education’s website. Their explanations of the law have been reviewed by state officials for accuracy. They also provide the statute for you to ensure the information is not out-of-date. Note: Each webpage begins with other forms of non-public education, such as private school, and ends with homeschool laws.
