Homeschooling is legal throughout the United States. Each state sets their own requirements, procedures, and legislation for homeschooling. Below are homeschool laws by state.
According to the HSLDA, “The law you should follow is that of the state in which you are physically present – Read more
Why? When you are physically present in a state, even temporarily, you are subject to that state’s laws, and, in many cases, to the jurisdiction of its courts. This is true even if your legal residency is in another state and you are only living elsewhere temporarily (such as when active members of the military are completing a temporary assignment). Consequently, you could be required to comply with the home education law of the state in which you are temporarily located.
If you plan to live in another state for a period longer than a month during the time that public schools are in session, HSLDA generally recommends that you comply with the requirements for home education in that state. This general recommendation applies even if you and/or your spouse pays taxes, own property, and/or have employment in another state.
If you are outside of the United States, you will need to check with your state/province laws for homeschooling in your area.”
