Home School Texas Information
Support and Help!

Now you've got another reason to love Texas! :)

Home school Texas families enjoy freedom and liberty when teaching their children at home.

As a home school parent, some of the many benefits waiting for you are: easy home school laws, a wealth of valuable resources, loads of support groups and educational opportunities.

When home schooling in Texas, you do not have to submit any forms or documents to home school your child legally.

Home school Texas laws allow you to establish and operate your home school as a private school.

When schooling your child at home, the subjects you are required to teach are reading, spelling, grammar, mathematics and a study of good citizenship.

Of course, if you are pulling your children out of public or private school, you will want to show courtesy by notifying school officials of your decision.

Make sure you keep a copy of your letter for your records. You will also want to ask the school, for your child’s school records and transcript.
