District Mission
The St. Johns County School District will inspire good character and a passion for lifelong learning in all students, creating educated and caring contributors to the world.


Welcome to the St. Johns County District Home Education Website. This website is designed to provide parents and guardians with the procedures necessary to successfully home educate their child in St. Johns County.

According to Florida Statute 1002.41, parents are eligible to home educate their children. Home education is defined by FS as “sequentially progressive instruction of a student by his/her parent or guardian in order to satisfy school attendance requirements.”

Please review the legal responsibilities and obligations carefully prior to enrolling your child into home education. I also suggest that you review the information provided by the Office of Independent Education and Parental Choice Website and Florida Department of Education information for Home Education.

I hope that you will find the information useful as you determine if home education is the best option for your child. Prior to beginning the home education experience, I recommend that you contact Phyllis Ingram, our District Guidance Counselor as she can give you guidance regarding the options available for your child as well as answer any questions you may have. Phyllis Ingram can be reached at Phyllis Ingram.

Best wishes for a successful home education experience.
