Nevada Homeschool Laws

Below is a summary of Nevada Homeschool Laws to help you ensure your homeschool is compliant.

Note: The information below is not to be considered legal advice. I’m a homeschool mom with an interest in helping you, not a lawyer. I strongly recommend that you contact your state education department if you have questions specific to your circumstances.


Nevada only has a few requirements for homeschooling including an initial notification and required subjects.

Can I Teach?

There is no requirement for you to meet in order to teach.

Do I Have to Notify the State?

Yes. Nevada requires you to submit the Notice of Intent to Homeschool to your school district when you first start homeschooling.

Required Subjects

Nevada requires you to teach the following core subjects:

  • English, including Reading, Composition, and Writing
  • Math
  • Science
  • Social Studies, including History, Geography, Economics, and Government

How Many Days a Year do I Have to Teach?

Nevada does not have a requirement for the number of school days or hours. For your reference, Nevada’s public school year is 180 days.

I strongly recommend keeping attendance records, even though they shouldn’t be required by the state or your school district.

Compulsory Attendance Age

The compulsory attendance age is the age range in which your child must be attending school of some type.

In Nevada, your child must be enrolled from 7 to 18 years old.

Public School Sports

The Nevada Interscholastic Activities Association (NIAA) allows homeschool students to participate in public school extracurricular activities, as long as they meet academic eligibility requirements.

You must submit the Notice of Intent to Participate in Programs and Activities to your local school district. Contact your local school for more information.
