Home Schooling

Parents who have a high school diploma or GED may school their children at home. The Georgia Department of Education requires the following five content areas:

  • Mathematics
  • English - Language Arts
  • Science
  • Social Studies
  • Reading

For curriculum, testing, and resource materials, we suggest you contact a home school association in your area.  It is best that you select a curriculum prior to registering your child/children.  To declare your intent to home school, submit an online "Declaration of Intent" by September 1 or within 30 days after an in-home program is established.


Option #1 - File your Intent online at  Home Study Program - Declaration of Intent.
Option #2 - Download Declaration of Intent form.
