North Carolina law defines a home school as a non public school consisting of the children of not more than two families or households, where the parents or legal guardians or members of either household determine the scope and sequence of the academic instruction, provide academic instruction, and determine additional sources of academic instruction. General Statute 115C-563(a) as amended changes the definition of a home school to allow parents to hire tutors, let their children participate in group settings where they receive instruction (co-ops, 4-H classroom instruction, etc.) and be instructed by an expert that is not a part of the household in the established home school (apprenticeships, a home school doctor teaching biology, etc.) This will allow home school parents more freedom to choose what is best for the education of their children.

Parents/guardians residing in North Carolina and desiring, in lieu of conventional school attendance, to home school their school-age children must:

  • Hold at least a high school diploma or its equivalent.

  • Send to DNPE a Notice of Intent to Operate a Home School. The notice must include the name and address of the school along with the name of the school's owner and chief administrator.
