Home Education

Home Education

Home education is a parent-directed approach to educating a student in Grades 1 to 12 at home or elsewhere in which they are responsible for making all education decisions.

Parents choose curriculum resources and methodology consistent with their family’s beliefs and consistent with the Home Education Regulation.

Supervised by school authority (funded)

One option for home education is to apply for a home education program supervised by a willing public, separate or francophone school board or accredited funded private school. This option is eligible for funding from Alberta Education. 

If you are a parent considering home educating your child(ren) under BTPS supervision please contact the Learning Hub directly for additional information.

Please note:


  • In order to receive their portion of the home education grant, if a parent has chosen to home educate with a supervising school authority, the parent must have notified and been accepted by an associate board or associate private school regarding the home education program by September 30.
