• Home Instruction

    Gabrielle Carpenter, Student Services Coordinator

  • *COVID-19 UPDATE: Per Governor Northam's Executive Order Fifty-One (EO51), issued on March 12th, 2020, and with approval by the Virginia Department of Education, parents electing to provide home instruction during the 2019-2020 school year shall be relieved of the requirement to provide evidence of student progress to the local school division superintendent (§ 22.1-254.1).

    Effective April 30th, 2020, Loudoun County residents currently providing home instruction will not be required to provide evidence of student progress for the 2019-2020 school year. The waiver is only for the 2019-2020 school year.


  • Notice of Intent
     This is the format through which parents notify the school division superintendent that they plan to home school their child(ren). This form can be a letter, written document or online notification, which must be submitted annually.

    The Department of Pupil Services encourages parents to submit their Notice of Intent to Provide Home Instruction and their Description of Curriculum through the online request system, which is accessed by clicking on the "NOI Click Here" icon below. 

    Once a parent/guardian has submitted the NOI, the description of curriculum (if not already included with the Notice of Intent) and any required, supporting documentation must be submitted to the Department of Pupil Services within 30 days. Correspondence may be faxed or e-mailed using the contact information at the top of this page.
     It may also be mailed to the address below, however, due to the closure of our offices due to the Covid-19 pandemic, submitting via US Mail may result in a delay of processing your NOI:

    Beginning JULY 1, 2020

    Home Instruction is one of several alternatives to enrolling a child of compulsory attendance age in public school. It is not a "summer only" offering or a way to advance your child to a higher grade level.
    Virtual Loudoun  

    Virtual Loudoun Summer courses are available to middle and high school students looking to get ahead.
