Home Study Options

We under­stand that every family’s edu­ca­tional needs are unique, and that you have choices in how and when you learn. Online learn­ing can pro­vide you the flex­i­bil­ity you need to enjoy hob­bies, trav­el­ing, and other ben­e­fits unique to home study households.

Every family in Vermont has the right to home study. All home study students can request up to two classes at their local school per semester, which may include VTVLC courses, and retain their home study status. Learn more about VT Home Study from the VT AOE.

If you are a home study family outside the state of Vermont, we are happy to support your home study program. Teacher Facilitated and Parent Facilitated options below are applicable. However, your local school support may vary from state to state. We encourage you to contact your state’s Department of Education for clarification.

VTVLC offers a variety of options for home study families for online coursework. You can ‘mix and match’ different types of enrollment to meet the specific needs of your family.
