Homeschooling is ilegal in Costa Rica

Postby homeschoolingcr » Tue Mar 26, 2019 9:19 pm


Recently a lot of families from USA have been considering moving temporarily or permanently to Costa Rica and educate their children through homeschooling by accredited academies in USA.

However it is important to notice that homeschooling is ilegal in Costa Rica, for both national and foreign children. Local authorities can force parents to send their children to a local public (free) school, and if you refuse to comply, authorities can take more severe actions.

We recommend to check this web site with official information about homeschooling in Costa Rica:

How tragic that the Costa Rican government does not recognize the basic right of parents to be responsible for their children's education. We will pray for that to change.
