Answer 1

Yes, you can legally homeschool your children in New Jersey. In fact, homeschooling is legal in some form or another in all fifty states, and New Jersey law on homeschooling is among the easiest in which to comply. New Jersey Statute 18A:38-25 simply states that a child between the ages of 6-16 must attend a public or private school or "receive equivalent instruction elsewhere than at school."

Read the current New Jersey Department of Education guidelines.
