Considering Home Education?

Home education is a successful educational option for parents in Ohio and around the country.

Growing at a rate of approximately 8% per year, an estimated 2.0 million children, grades kindergarten through high school, were being home educated in the U.S. during mid-2010 according to a survey conducted by the National Home Education Research Institute.

Locally, over 70 families, representing 200+ students, are current members of KCCHSA.

Home Education in Ohio

You may be wondering...
  • Is homeschooling legal in Ohio?
  • What is required of me as the parent?
  • What is required of my child
  • Who do I need to notify?
  • What about testing and assessments


Fiscal Responsibility?

The average per-pupil expenditure is $9,105.20. 

This number is the average for all five public school districts in Knox County - Mount Vernon, Centerburg, Danville, East Knox, and Fredericktown. (Source)

Do you spend that much money homeschooling your children? Does it really take that much money to provide a good education for each student every year?

The median amount spent per child per year by homeschoolers is $400-$599 (according to the Homeschool Progress Report 2009, Home School Legal Defense Association).
