Homeschooling in Arizona

Arizona Homeschool Information

Homeschooling is a great choice for families in Arizona! Find out how to homeschool, what the homeschool requirements are for Arizona residents, connect with local homeschoolers, find nearby classes and co-ops, discover field trip destinations, and much more.

Homeschooling is regulated at the state level and changes may be made to the relevant statutes at any time. Always consult the actual state code (which is usually online at your state's official website) for the most up to date and accurate legal information with regard to homeschooling. Also keep in mind that interpretations of the code—whether provided by school districts or homeschool groups—can be helpful, but may or may not be an accurate reflection of the law. Always combine interpretations with your own reading of the statute itself.

The "Show Me" Letter - Many an uninformed (or informed but overzealous) school administration official has asked local homeschoolers for more documentation than the state homeschool law requires. In The "Show Me" Letter, Shay Seaborne relates her experience with an overzealous official and how knowing the law and being polite but firm is often all it takes to educate local officials. A "must read" for new homeschoolers!

Although we try to keep our links up to date, state laws change regularly. The information at the links provided below contain information that may or may not be current.
