Puerto Rico Home School Laws

Puerto Rico Education Code For Homeschooling

Puerto Rico homeschool law and information*

Compulsory attendance – 6 to under 18.

Parent Qualification: There are no teacher qualification requirements for non-governmental schools.

Standardized tests: Not required for non-governmental schools.

*This is not intended to be legal advice and is distributed for information purposes only. Check for updates at your public library.

There are no homeschool statutes per se, however these are the alternative
statutes allowing homeschooling:

  1. Instruction in the elementary and secondary school shall be free and shall
    be compulsory in the elementary schools to the extent permitted by the
    facilities of the state. Compulsory attendance at elementary public schools
    shall not be construed as applicable to those who receive elementary education
    in schools established under non-governmental auspices.
  2. Attendance at public schools shall not be compulsory for those who are
    receiving education in schools established under the auspices of
    non-governmental entities.
  3. Most homeschools operate as non-governmental schools. Non-governmental
    schools are not clearly defined or regulated by law. Only “primary or secondary
    academic” schools which ” declare, promises, announces, or expresses the
    intention of granting certificates, diplomas, degrees, or licenses” are required
    to be licensed. It seems that only these private “diploma” schools are under
    Puerto Rico’s private school regulation.
