Homeschoolers have a lot of choices available. Please take the information you find useful from these pages and ignore the rest.

Many people, including me, will give opinions on the PA homeschooling law.  I believe that everyone should read the law for themselves, read a few opinions about it, and decide for themselves what approach makes sense for their family.

The PA Home Education Law

I might be wrong! I am not a lawyer! Your circumstances may be different! This page, and others on this site, are not intended as legal advice. School districts vary considerably in their interpretation of the home education law. Please double-check legal information with appropriate sources. In particular, the PA Dept. of Ed. may be helpful.

I especially appreciate a heads up when there is a problem with one of my pages. You can reach me by email at

I try to answer all of my emails, but I am a busy homeschooling mom and can't always catch up. If you haven't heard back from me, please feel free to contact me again.

If you have questions about the PA homeschooling law, you might also want to contact the PDE, to get their perspective on your situation.
