Home Education Registration In Australia

To get home education registration you must apply to the state or territory in which you are a resident. You cannot register to homeschool in Australia if you are living overseas, or have no fixed address. The parent who will be the home educator is the person who registers each individual child.

Do I Need Home Education Registration ?

Legally children in Australia between the ages of 6 and 15 need to be at school or homeschooled. From 15 to 17 children can leave school if they meet state educational or vocational requirements (this varies slightly between states).

Children who are school aged and are on temporary Australian visas are also eligible to apply to be homeschooled. The same registration conditions apply to temporary visa holders as they do to Australian citizens.

Registration and Reporting Assistance

Most homeschoolers are more worried about the home education registration process than actually homeschooling.

So we want to ease your stress and make the registration process as easy as possible for you. And with around 5000 homeschool applications for registration submitted by our families, we can boast a 100% success rate when homeschoolers follow our procedure.

There is no additional cost for our registration plans they are included with all course purchases.

Our homeschool curriculum is written to comply with the Australian curriculum and all other state requirements. We make registration easy because we’ve already done 75% of the documentation you need for your application.

Documentation And Support Provided By My Homeschool

At My Homeschool, we do not do your registration plans for you. Registration applications are meant to be specific for each individual child and so parents are the best person to do this. 

We do provide plenty of support for this process. This includes:

  • An Education Plan offered in a format that you can individualise for your child;
  • A Scope and Sequence showing how My Homeschool reflects the Australian Curriculum and NSW Syllabus;
  • End of Term Report templates;
  • A printable week-by-week planner with plenty of space to make notes specific to your child (no need to purchase a separate planner!);
  • An online Weekly Planner, complete with links to all the online resources required; and
  • A Certificate of Completion for the end of a full primary grade or high school semester.
  • A place to ask questions on our community forum or via email.
  • A State Registration self- paced course with examples and tips for registration visits.

We give you a shortcut to help you get straight into giving your child a delightful and robust education without spending days and days researching and tweaking unsuitable content.

Home Education Registration Success Stories

We’ve been told by many members that their registration application passed easily. Here are a few but you can read more reviews and testimonials here.

I just wanted to say thank you for all the effort that’s been put into My Homeschool! I had my AP visit yesterday and it went great! He’s giving me 12 months registration and said if he comes next year and I’m still using the My Homeschool curriculum then he’ll give two years, even for my kindy child who’ll be a new registration. Thank you so much for helping make this transition to homeschooling so much easier and providing such detailed documents. I’m truly grateful!

Homeschool Reviews, My Homeschool Multiple Grades

Thank you for putting together this wonderful course. Over the last 4 years I have taken 2 of my children through Years 7 and 8 using a distance ed programme but this year my daughter and I have found this course to be a much less stressful transition to high school. I love knowing that we are still fulfilling the requirements for the Australian Curriculum but I have also been able to give my daughter the rich classical literature-based education that I was looking for. I have been interested in the Charlotte Mason style of education for a few years but until now I was frustrated that everything I came across was based on American history/geography/seasons. Thank you for putting in the time to track down and integrate appropriate Australian resources into the curriculum.

This was my first year registering with the Qld Home Education unit myself so I also found the information that you included regarding registering very helpful.

I have also used the Year 5 and Prep courses this year and found them to be wonderful as well. Thank you again.

Just to let you know, our moderator here in W.A. absolutely loved the curriculum! Very positive feedback.

We are so very happy with your gorgeous curriculum and look forward to our future years of study!

Homeschool Reviews, Year 4 Curriculum

My Homeschool has been the perfect fit for our family. It has provided the “hand-holding” I needed as a new homeschooler while still being flexible enough to be workable in everyday life.

It took the stress out of writing the application for exemption to homeschool as everything was laid out for me, and we were granted 18 months exemption.

I love that it uses a relaxed CM style, can be taught from a Christian worldview and is Australian. The weekly plans are not overly prescriptive so can easily be implemented according to the child’s individual interests and pace of learning and whatever else is happening in our week.
