Home Education and Private Tutoring Programs
If you are considering homeschooling as an educational option, please review the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) Home Education and Private Tutoring Guide. Although the guide does not yet reflect the changes in compulsory attendance for homeschooling, it does provide a wealth of information.
The compulsory age for homeschool education in Pennsylvania is 6 to 18 years. A child who is 6 years old by September 1 must be enrolled in a public, private, charter, or homeschool program.
