Homeschooling in Maryland


marylandSince 1991, Maryland has allowed homeschooling under the supervision of the local school system “if the instruction is offered through and supervised by a state-approved correspondence course or bona-fide church organization.”   Maryland recognizes home schools and non-public schools as legitimate alternatives to public school attendance.  Current Maryland regulations do not require a home school parent or guardian to hold either a high school diploma or a college degree.  Although there is no law specifically addressing the number of required attendance days for homeschoolers, Maryland public school must provide 280 days of instruction and it is generally assumed that this requirement also applies to home schools.
