Home Education Families flyer

Please Note: An application to Home School is NOT REQUIRED if you want to attend Volusia Online Learning as a full-time student.​

Home Education is a parent-directed educational option that satisfies the requirement for regular school attendance. Florida Laws protecting home education became effective in 1985. Parents have the freedom to determine their child's educational path and the plan for reaching their goals. Students have the opportunity to explore and learn at their own pace, in any location or at any time. Home education students are able to enter institutions of higher learning and are eligible to participate in the Florida Bright Futures Scholarship Program. The state of Florida or the Volusia County school district does not issue a high school diploma to Home Education students.

You can find documents on our Department Resources page.


Join the Volusia Online Learning (VOL) community of homeschoolers. We provide Kindergarten-12th grade homeschool students a variety of flexible options. Create or complement your home education curriculum with a range of courses and plan your own schedule with support from our certified teachers and counselors. Homeschool students can choose from many courses that offer instruction from dedicated teachers in core subjects, electives, and honors at no cost.

For VOL homeschoolers, parents are in charge of their students’ home education program, which must comply with Florida Home Education statutes, including annual evaluation requirements (f.s. 1002.41).
