Below are the requirements for homeschooling in North Carolina per the HSLDA:

North Carolina law defines a “home school” as “a nonpublic school consisting of the children of not more than two families or households, where the parents or legal guardians or members of either household determine the scope and sequence of academic instruction, provide academic instruction, and determine additional sources of academic instruction.” You may choose to operate your homeschool as one of two different types of “nonpublic” schools: (1) a qualified nonpublic school, or (2) a private religious school or a school of religious charter. The requirements are the same regardless of the type of homeschool, and are listed below.

1. Submit a notice of intent.
2. Ensure that the teachers in your homeschool have the required qualifications.
3. Provide the required days of instruction.
4. Keep attendance and immunization records.
5. Administer an annual standardized test.
6. Close your home school.
