  • Home Instruction Option
    • Provide evidence of one of the following
      • Possess a high school diploma or higher degree,
      • Possess a current Virginia teacher’s license,
      • Provide your child with a curriculum or program of study as part of your home instruction program, or
      • Give evidence that you are able to provide your child an adequate education.
    • File annual notice of intent to homeschool with your school district superintendent by August 15th (or upon exiting public school).
    • Provide annual proof of progress by August 1st.
  • Religious Exemption Option
    • Send religious exemption letter or to your school district superintendent by August 15th (or upon exiting public school) and reaffirm annually or add children as they reach homeschool age.

Other options in which the parent is not teaching the child include utilizing a certified tutor and placing your child in a private school with online schooling.
