Home Instruction

Maine parents may choose to educate their children at home. Parents take full responsibility for the child while the child is being homeschooled—they legally direct the child's education by choosing the curriculum, facilitating the process and determining academic needs. Homeschooling is funded exclusively by the parent. During the 2013-14 academic year, 5,025 Maine students were registered with their local superintendent of schools and the Maine DOE for homeschooling.
