The Farm School is recognized by the Tennessee Department of Education as a Category IV Exempted School (a.k.a. Church-related school). Operating under the Jeter Memo, The Farm School founded The Farm School Satellite Campuses Program as an umbrella for off-Farm home & community based learners ( a.k.a. homeschoolers).

Please note: As a Tennessee non-public school enrollment in our program meets the compulsory attendance laws for the state of Tennessee. We do not assert that enrollment in our program meets the compulsory attendance and/or homeschool requirements in other states. It is the parent / guardianís responsibility to meet the requirements of the state in which the student resides if they do not reside in Tennessee.

We are very excited to be able to offer an alternative for homeschool families that, for whatever reason, are not comfortable registering with their Local Educational Agency (LEA) or with a denominational Church Related School (CRS). We require no statement of faith and are not interested in mandating curriculum or any other decisions. We believe in responsive education matched to the needs, interests and experiences of individual children. And we believe that the adults best able to negotiate curriculum with children are the adults spending time with those children on a daily basis. 

Registration and enrollment fees cover basic administrative processing & services including a Homeschool Reporting Online account for
centralized record keeping, access to The Farm School Online Community Commons,  Farm School diploma or certificate of attendance,  ID cards, transcripts, Tennessee driver's license proof of attendance and progress letter. Additional fees may apply for services such as  curriculum consultation, assessment review, and portfolio planning and review.

Enrollment is open all year. Our school year runs from July 1 - June 30 allowing 365 days to schedule & log the Tennessee mandated minimum requirement of 180 days of attendance (at least fours hours of learning per day).  Attendance under our program begins no earlier than your enrollment date with us and ends on June 30. You may schedule and log weekends and holidays. We enroll out-of-state families, however, enrollment may not satisfy the compulsory attendance and/or homeschool laws in other states or nations.
