They are going to college and trade schools, are entering the work force, and are leading productive, fulfilling lives.
Families have found that the benefits of homeschooling are many and varied, and a wide variety of homeschooling options from homeschool curriculum to local homeschool programs are available to meet your child's academic needs. If you are looking for Arizona accredited homeschool programs or free Arizona homeschool curriculum, be sure to check out our information on online schooling.
Local homeschoolers are often a helpful resource for understanding homeschool regulations, so getting connected early can help reduce anxiety for new homeschoolers. Online homeschool communities can provide encouragement and crowdsourcing of resources in a virtual environment, and in person communities can provide opportunities through field trips, co-ops, classes, and outings. Whichever type of community you prefer, avoiding isolation is a key to homeschool success.
The above buttons link to many valuable Arizona homeschool groups, resources, and activities to meet social & activity needs: co-ops, homeschool activity groups, sports and arts opportunities, field trips, and more.
Arizona Homeschooling Requirements
As you investigate Arizona home school requirements, be aware that homeschool laws are set by the state rather than the federal government. That means that what homeschoolers in another state need to do to comply with their state's homeschooling requirements may be vastly different from what is required in Arizona.
Your statewide homeschool organization will be the most help in interpreting any homeschool requirements, but there is no substitute for knowing what the state law says. We've gathered links to the relevant information for you below.
Arizona Homeschooling Laws
- Arizona Home Education Statutes (AFHE)
- Equal recognition of transcripts and diplomas (Arizona Legislature)
- Arizona Homeschool Statute (Arizona Legislature)

Although we try to keep our links up to date, state laws change regularly. The information at the links provided above may or may not be current. Be sure to verify information with your state homeschool organization(s).
ARCHES Academy MicroschoolsApache Junction
This resource is a support network and resource library available for homeschoolers. When a homeschool partners with ARCHES Academy, they become a microschool. Microschools receive funding to purchase curriculum, pay teachers, and acquire necessary technology resources. The only difference between traditional homeschooling and being in a microschool is the added advantage of direct help and support from ARCHES Academy. Microschool teachers get paid by ARCHES Academy, receive a curriculum fund to purchase any new curriculum, and have ongoing support for all student needs. All students anywhere in Arizona are welcome to be a part of the microschool program.
