Information for New Home Schooling Enrollments
Baltimore County Public Schools supports home schooling in accordance with the Maryland Regulations (COMAR) 13A.10.01.

Home Schooling Basics

  • A parent or guardian who chooses to teach a child at home must provide instruction in the required subject areas: English/language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, art, music, health, and physical education.

  • The parent/guardian is responsible for selecting the curriculum and/or instructional materials to be used for each subject area.

  • High school students enrolled in home schooling programs are not eligible for a diploma from Baltimore County Public Schools.  Refer to Home Schooling at a Glance for more information. 

Home Schooling Supervision

All home schooling programs must be supervised. Parents/guardians may choose to be supervised by a nonpublic entity registered with MSDE or by Baltimore County Public Schools. Please indicate your selection of supervision on page 2 of the Notification Form. You may choose a different supervision entity at any time by notifying the Home Schooling Office.
