Home Study

In accordance with the State Board of Education, AOE accountability goals, and Vermont law, the home study program works to ensure that all students enrolled in home study programs have access to a quality education. When required, the program provides technical assistance to improve the quality of a home study program.

Home Study Enrollment

May 1 is the deadline to enroll students for the current year. As of March 1, we begin accepting home study enrollment notices for the next school year. March 1 is also when we begin accepting End of the Year Assessments (EOYA) for the current year. Please note that not all those students enrolling will need all forms.  Below is the online portal and/or forms you will need for new enrollments, second year and beyond. 

Please read the Home Study guidelines for information necessary to prepare and submit an enrollment notice for homeschooling. Excerpts from relevant statutes and rules are also provided.

Enrollments can take up to 14 business days to process once received. Submission of an enrollment packet does not mean that the student is been enrolled in a home study program. When students are officially enrolled in a home study program, families will receive a complete letter from the Home Study Office.

Enroll Online

The Agency of Education has an online platform for families to use when submitting their Enrollment forms,  End of the Year Assessments (EOYA) and additional information. This portal is user-friendly and will help families submit all of the information needed to enroll their child/ren. Once the enrollment is submitted, you will receive an email confirmation.

Paper Submissions

Families who choose not to use the online enrollment portal may complete the appropriate forms linked below to enroll in a home study in Vermont.
