Parents may choose to provide an education curriculum for students in their home. Students who are home schooled do not attend a physical school and their lessons are provided by someone in their home, usually a family member. Homeschooling requires specific legislative and curriculum requirements be followed. Parents who choose to home school their children must also register their child with a local school board.
To learn more about home schooling as an option, contact one of your local school boards and the Ontario Ministry of Education.
The Ontario Federation of Teaching Parents (OFTP) is a provincial home school group providing support to homeschooling families and information on home-based education to members and the public at large.
