It is not necessary to inform anyone of your intent to homeschool if your child is not currently enrolled in a public school. If your child is currently enrolled in a public school, it is strongly recommended that you submit a letter to the public school superintendent formally withdrawing your child. The state home education organization has other guidelines and information to help you get started.
NOTE: The information provided is a guideline. It is important for all parents to understand the statutes, procedures, policies, and/or guidelines in their home state and do what is necessary to comply with them. Find out the law in your state.
Home Education Resources and Support Groups
Families have been educating their children at home for years. You don't need to start from scratch!
Start with our Home Education Resources where you'll find links to curriculum, materials, teaching methods, answers to common questions about home education, step-by-step suggestions and creative options, and links to national organizations. Our goal is to share some of the best and most popular materials and resources.
You are not alone! There are many home education support groups in your area who have suggestions for teaching individual subjects, outlines of teaching methods, special needs links, activities, events, and much, much more.
We also have links below to the major home education organization in New Jersey. You can find more support groups at their website.
Use the National Center for Education Statistics to find a private school in your area - just enter your city! This useful database has many ways to search, provides stats such as grade levels of schools, student population, contact info for schools.
Laws and Standards
For the best understanding on the law and how to read it, we recommend National Home Education Legal Defense (NHELD). Once you read their site, you'll know why they are your vanguards of true legal freedom. Here is an excerpt from NHELD:
Parents educate their children for a variety of reasons in a variety of ways. However, there is one thing that is crucial for all parents, the need to be free so that they are able to educate in the manner in which they choose in the best interest of their children. Together, we can and must retain this freedom; without freedom, there is only one choice: government schooling. That is not acceptable.
If you feel that your group is not properly represented below - or if you know of a group that should be listed in one of our categories - or if you find a broken link - please let us know. Thank you!
