Arizona Homeschooling Laws

Arizona homeschooling laws and requirements

*This is not intended to be legal advice and is distributed for information purposes only. Check for updates at the Arizona Department of Education website. 

Compulsory attendance

Children who are between the ages of 6 and 16 years of age as of September 1. However, for children who have turned 6 before September 1st and who are under 8 years of age as of September 1, parents may notify the County School Superintendent (CSS) in writing that they don’t wish to have their child in school at this time. After age 8, parents need to follow the Homeschooling law outlined below.

Home Schooling Information

In Arizona, Home Schooling is under the jurisdiction of each county. Please visit your county office of education site directly for more information.

Arizona Homeschooling law requires that:

  • Every child between the ages of six and sixteen years shall be provided instruction in at least the subjects of reading, grammar, mathematics, social studies, and science.
  • The person who has custody of the child shall choose a public, private or home school to provide instruction.
  • An affidavit of intent shall be filed within thirty days from the time the child begins to attend a homeschool and is not required thereafter unless the home school instruction is terminated and then resumed. The person who has custody of the child shall notify the county school superintendent within thirty days of the termination that the child is no longer being instructed at a homeschool.
    • The affidavit of intent shall include:

      (a) The child’s name.

      (b) The child’s date of birth.

      (c) The current address of the school the child is attending.

      (d) The names, telephone numbers, and addresses of the persons who currently have custody of the child.
