We want to homeschool.
How do we start?
Review NC's legal requirements and register your school HERE
Homeschooling in NC is fairly simple, but there are a few expectations.
View a complete list of requirements and recommendations here
as we are not equipped to give legal advice and these requirements may change.
The basic expectations are that you register your school once, then keep the following on file yearly:
Record of attendance
(a regular schedule for at least 9 months of the year)
Record of immunizations
Record of result from a nationally standardized test, administered yearly.
We are registered!
What do you want your student to know?
Who is going to teach them those things?
When and where will they learn?
There are 1,000s of options with more being added daily.
It can be overwhelming!
You choose your curriculum in NC. There are open and go packages available, you can piece together what works for you, or you can plan everything!

We're homeschooling and want a co-op!
This area is blessed with several co-op options that range from full day drop off programs to an hour class where parents stay on campus. You are still responsible for your child's education, but these options can be helpful.

If you would like your child to go to school virtually and/or part time, options are available. These choices give increased flexibility, but offer more support than homeschooling.
