Alaska Homeschooling Legal Requirements

See the Full list of Homeschooling Requirements by State

Below is a quick reference guide on the homeschooling requirements for the state of Alaska. For more information on the legal requirements visit the HSLDA Alaska page. This site is not a source of legal counsel or advice.

Option 1: Homeschooling under the homeschool statute.
This option allows you to educate your child in your home as long as you are the parent or legal guardian. There are no requirements to notify the state, seek approval, test, file forms, or have any teacher qualifications.

Option 2: Homeschooling with a private tutor.
Children can be instructed at home by a tutor who is an Alaska-certified teacher.

Option 3: Homeschooling with school board approval.
Your child does not have to attend public school if he “is equally well-served by an educational experience approved by the school board.” In order to homeschool under this option, you must submit a written request to the principal or school administrator of the school your child attends and receive a written excuse from school attendance.

Option 4: Homeschooling as a religious private school.

Visit the HSLDA Alaska page for more information on homeschooling in Alaska.
