Home schooling

A child’s guardian assumes the full responsibility for the child’s education in the event that the child is schooled at home. The guardian ensures that the child meets the goals defined for comprehensive education in all subjects in all grades. The child cannot be exempted from studying any subject of the curriculum of comprehensive education. The decision to school a child at home is made by the child’s guardian.  

Home schooling is not the same as education at home organised by a school in case of, for example, illness or some other compelling circumstance requiring the school to provide teaching at home. Home schooling should be organised with due regard to all regulations of the Basic Education Act (21.8.1998/628).

A child of compulsory education age schooled at home is not registered as a pupil of any school. The child is not entitled to free school supplies, school medical care, special needs education or other school services.

If you are interested in organising home schooling for your child, please contact your local school.
