Home Education in Vermont

Be sure to submit “a written enrollment notice to the commissioner” for each child every year any time after March 1 for each subsequent year.  Include “a detailed outline or narrative which describes the content to be provided in each subject area of the minimum course of study.”  Check the HSLDA website for other legal requirements.

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. 


Private Schools

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.


We also have links to the laws regarding education (from the HSLDA website) and educational standards (from Developing Educational Standards)

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!

Vermont Christian Homeschool Mothers


This group is designed for Christian mothers who homeschool their children in the beautiful state of Vermont. We'd love to hear about your field trips, teaching ideas, lesson plans and general homemaking chatter!


Vermont Homeschoolers


People who live in Vermont and either homeschool or plan to homeschool their children are invited to discuss events and issues. This is a clearinghouse of information that will not only help parents to home educate their children but will also enable Vermont homeschoolers to exercise, promote, and protect their right to homeschool their children. We do not promote or advocate any particular educational approach, religious conviction, political stance, or any other view or philosophy of homeschooling parents. This group is for a broad-spectrum of homeschoolers and is exclusively about homeschooling issues.


Vermont Homeschooling


Keep informed about the Vermont homeschool and unschooling movements, share your homeschooling experiences, and other homeschooling related topics.
