Home Schooling

In Victoria, home schooling your child during their compulsory school years is a recognised alternative to attending government or registered non-government schools.

We recognise that home schooling can occur across a broad range of styles, from informal learning approaches to formal curriculum programs, and as such, does not mandate curriculum or reading materials for families who have chosen to home school.

When you decide to educate your child from a home base, you assume overall responsibility for the planning, implementation and assessment of your child’s education al program. There are a number of minimum requirements, but a great deal of flexibility overall.

For information on home schooling, see: Primary school: Home schooling. The same information applies to both primary and secondary students.
