Arizona 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 Arizona. For more information on the legal requirements visit the HSLDA Arizona page. This site is not a source of legal counsel or advice.

To begin homeschooling in Arizona:

1. File an affidavit of intent.

The parent or guardian must file a one-time affidavit of intent to homeschool with the county school superintendent within 30 days after beginning to homeschool in the county. The affidavit of intent must include the child’s name, the child’s date of birth, the address of the school the child is currently attending (if any), as well as the names, telephone numbers, and addresses of the persons who currently have custody of the child.

2. Provide a copy of the child’s birth certificate.

The parent or person with custody must provide a certified copy (a photocopy of the original is sufficient if the copy is notarized) of the child’s birth certificate. If you cannot obtain a certified copy of your child’s birth certificate, you can submit other proof of the child’s identity and age along with an affidavit explaining inability to provide a copy of the birth certificate.

3. Teach the required subjects.

You must include reading, grammar, math, social studies, and science in your homeschool curriculum.

4. File a letter of termination.

If you decide to stop homeschooling, or move out of the county, you should submit a letter of termination to the county superintendent of schools within 30 days of ending your homeschool program. If you begin homeschooling again, or begin homeschooling in a new county, you should submit a new affidavit of intent.
