Connecticut does not require families to notify the state of their decision to homeschool. There are state required subjects. The CT government does not conduct any state assessments of homeschoolers.

Very few states have laws that prevent parents from homeschooling their children. Connecticut does not prohibit parents from homeschooling based on their legal or criminal history.
