Home education is a legal alternative to school education in South Australia.
The Department for Education is responsible for regulating home education.
Home educating families are able to develop curriculum and learning programs to suit the individual needs of their children.
An active supportive home educating community thrives in South Australia. Individual and groups organise a range of social and educational activities including excusions, camps, workshops and classes for home educating families.

Families accept and take on the responsibility for educating their children outside of school. To enable this they apply for exemption from attending school. Families are required to prepare a comprehensive learning plan to suit their child's needs within the scope of the Australian Curriculum. Children learn within the family home, making use of community resources and amenities. The parents or caregivers are responsible for creating, planning, evaluating and recording the children's learning. Permission to home educate is reviewed annually. Home educating groups provide support, education and social opportunities.
