Connecticut Homeschooling Requirements

Connecticut has very low requirements for homeschooling.

Connecticut General Statute 10-184 says that all parents are responsible for ensuring that their children receive instruction in the following required subjects:

  • Reading, writing, spelling, and English grammar;
  • Geography;
  • Arithmetic;
  • United States history, and citizenship, including a study of the town, state, and federal governments.

As a homeschooler you may be asked to but are not required to:

  1. File an Intent to Homeschool with the School District
  2. Attend an Annual Portfolio Meeting

Both of these are at the discretion of the parent whether to participate or not. In Connecticut you do not need approval and you do not need to contact the schools to let them know your intent to homeschool.
