Private Instruction (Home Schooling)

Families may choose to educate their children at home instead of sending them to a traditional public or nonpublic school. This is called home schooling. The state of Iowa allows several educational options for home schooling:

  • Full-time home school with the support of a certified teacher (Competent Private Instruction)
  • Full-time home school without the support of a certified teacher (Competent Private Instruction or Independent Private Instruction)
  • Part-time homeschool with part-time enrollment in a school district (Competent Private Instruction)
  • Attendance at a non-accredited school (Competent Private Instruction)

Home-schooled high school students cannot receive a diploma from an accredited school. For more information regarding Private Instruction, please visit the Iowa Department of Education website (link below).
