When many families consider homeschooling, it can often feel overwhelming. However, homeschooling in Maryland is as easy as 1-2-3!

  1. Submit the notice of Intent To Homeschool Form (select Option B – Peaceful Worldschoolers Homeschool Umbrella – 2832 Gracefield Road, Silver Spring, MD 20904) to your county Superintendent at least 15 days before beginning your homeschool program. If you are NOT in Maryland, please look up your state’s homeschooling laws on the HSLDA Website.
  2. Complete the Peaceful Worldschoolers Homeschool Umbrella Registration Form.
  3. Book your FREE Homeschooling Pre-Conference with Angela Harders

*=I was unable to find a county-specific homeschool notification form, so this is the generic Maryland Intent to Homeschool Form.

Once you have finished steps 1, 2, and 3, that’s when the fun REALLY begins!
