How to Home School in Maryland

Home Schooling is an option for parents who elect to withdraw their child(ren) from the public school system. Students who participate in homeschooling do not have access to any of the educational resources provided to students enrolled in public school. Instead, parents are responsible for providing materials and delivering instruction.

Parents who elect home schooling are legally mandated by the Maryland State Department of Education to “provide regular, thorough instruction in the studies usually taught in the public schools to children of the same age.” Home schooling students do not receive grades, credits or a diploma.

This video series provides insight into beginning home schooling in Maryland.
