Indiana 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 Indiana. For more information on the legal requirements visit the HSLDA Indiana  page.
Indiana homeschoolers are required to comply with Indiana’s private school statute. There are four steps to complying with Indiana’s homeschooling requirements per the HSLDA:
1. Provide equivalent instruction in the English language.
Private schools must teach in the English language and provide instruction equivalent to that given in public schools. However, the State Board of Education is not given the authority to define “equivalent instruction” nor to approve homeschool programs. There are no mandatory subjects for a homeschool program, but HSLDA recommends that you follow the same general subjects that would be taught in public school.
2. Teach for the required number of days.
You must operate your homeschool program for the same number of days that the public schools in your district are in session. This is generally 180 days.
3. Keep attendance records.
You must keep attendance records to verify the enrollment and attendance of your students. Such records must be made available upon request of the state superintendent or the superintendent of the school district in which you reside.
4. Provide information to the state, if required.
Indiana public school officials frequently request that homeschoolers complete an online enrollment form on the Indiana Department of Education website. This enrollment is not required under state law and is voluntary. There are a few situations when completing this enrollment form might be beneficial.
