Overview

The state association is a not-for-profit organization founded for the purpose of supporting and encouraging families interested in home education. We define home education as parent-directed, home-based, privately-funded education.

Our primary functions are maintaining visibility as home educators with civil government leaders, influencing the legislative process to protect our freedom to home educate, publishing information of interest for home educators, and sponsoring seminars and events to encourage families.

Homeschool Law in Our State

The laws in our state allow us to freely home educate our children. The law requires that our home educated children attend school from 7-18 years of age or they graduate. Children must attend school for the number of days that the local school corporation is in session, which is generally 180 days each year.  Parents must also keep attendance records and provide an equivalent education in the English language. It is expected the school will receive written notice from a parent when a student is transferred from public school to homeschool.

It is our goal to present families with the most complete and up-to-date information as we can. Please review our disclaimer page if you have any questions.
