Home education is a legally protected right in all 50 states. At present, more than 70 students on Martha’s Vineyard, grades pre-K through 12, are educated at home by their parent(s). Each family chooses a teaching style, curriculum, and format suited to their child’s individual learning style and in accordance with the family’s beliefs and educational philosophy. The flexible format permits a wide variety of learning experiences, including apprenticeships in Island businesses and non-profit organizations, trips abroad, livestock projects, and intimate community studies. Curriculum fairs, teaching seminars and workshops, and summer camp activities throughout New England are available on a regular basis.
