Homeschooling in Pennsylvania
Families can join the Natural Creativity community and satisfy the compulsory school attendance law by registering a Home Education Program with their local school district. The process is easier than it seems — here are the basic steps:
Prior to the start of the school year — generally by August 1 — send the superintendent of your local school district a notarized letter (also called an affidavit) that says you’re choosing to pursue a Home Education Program.
At the conclusion of the academic year, meet with an evaluator of your choice who:
a. reviews the portfolio
b. talks with your student
c. gives you a letter to send to your school district (by June 30th) letting them know that “appropriate education is occurring.”
