How Do I Get My Homeschool Registration?
Most homeschoolers are more worried about the homeschool registration process than actually homeschooling. We want to remove that anxiety and make the process as easy as possible.
Our Graded Courses will take the stress and worry out of your homeschool registration application.
We provide you with:
- A Yearly Plan outlining our curriculum for 12 months.
- A comprehensive scope and sequence using codes and outcomes for each state.
- Term report templates that are mostly done; you just need to add a few details.
- A week by week planner that you can print off, with places to make notes (no need to keep a diary)!!
- Online checklist that you can use on your devices to keep a record of progress.
- End of year Certificate of Completion.
- Prompts and reminders to collect work as part of your child’s portfolio.
- Tips on re-registration.
The My Homeschool Registration Course guides you through your state’s application process for homeschool registration when using our courses. Each Graded Course gives you much of the documentation you will need when applying for registration.
Note: Registration application are meant to be specific for each child and require some individualisation. We do not do your applications for you. Registration still remains your responsibility.
Homeschooling Registration – State and Territory Requirements
Legally children in Australia between the ages of 6 to 15 need to be at school or homeschooled. From 15 to 17 children can leave school as long as they meet state educational or vocational requirements (this varies slightly between states).
To be registered for homeschooling in Australia you must apply to the state or territory in which you are a resident.
You cannot register to homeschool in Australia if you are living overseas, or have no fixed address.
The parent who will be the home educator is the person who registers each individual child.
Each state has their own regulation for homeschooling.
See information about your specific state here:
- New South Wales
- Western Australia
- Northern Territory
- South Australia

My Homeschool has been the perfect fit for our family. It has provided the “hand-holding” I needed as a new homeschooler while still being flexible enough to be workable in everyday life.
It took the stress out of writing the application for exemption to homeschool as everything was laid out for me, and we were granted 18 months exemption.
I love that it uses a relaxed CM style, can be taught from a Christian worldview and is Australian. The weekly plans are not overly prescriptive so can easily be implemented according to the child’s individual interests and pace of learning and whatever else is happening in our week.
I to started this year with my 9 year old boy, so I’m definitely not an expert at this at all. It’s been an adjustment period but I enjoy having my son home and watching him learn, he’s having more fun and I can tell how much he is progressing in just the short amount of time he’s been doing it.
Starting off the journey is scary, and we have just had our 3 month moderator visit us for the first time. I was so nervous! We passed with flying colours and she was very impressed with everything my son has been learning. “
We got the ‘go ahead’ for our first year of homeschooling from the Assessor today and he said that he gave us a full year to start us off because he was, and I quote, “Very impressed with the level of detail” I was able to provide him with and that is thanks to Myhomeschool!!
I love the weekly schedule so much, Jo – I know they will make the organisational side of my week much less of a task.
Thank you for putting together this wonderful course. Over the last 4 years I have taken 2 of my children through Years 7 and 8 using a distance ed programme but this year my daughter and I have found this course to be a much less stressful transition to high school. I love knowing that we are still fulfilling the requirements for the Australian Curriculum but I have also been able to give my daughter the rich classical literature-based education that I was looking for. I have been interested in the Charlotte Mason style of education for a few years but until now I was frustrated that everything I came across was based on American history/geography/seasons. Thank you for putting in the time to track down and integrate appropriate Australian resources into the curriculum.
This was my first year registering with the Qld Home Education unit myself so I also found the information that you included regarding registering very helpful. I have also used the Year 5 and Prep courses this year and found them to be wonderful as well. Thank you again; my daughter and I are really looking forward to seeing the Year 8 curriculum when it is ready.
Just to let you know, our moderator here in W.A. absolutely loved the curriculum! Very positive feedback.
We are so very happy with your gorgeous curriculum and look forward to our future years of study!
I just wanted to say thank you for all the effort that’s been put into My Homeschool! I had my AP visit yesterday and it went great! He’s giving me 12 months registration and said if he comes next year and I’m still using the My Homeschool curriculum then he’ll give two years, even for my kindy child who’ll be a new registration. Thank you so much for helping make this transition to homeschooling so much easier and providing such detailed documents. I’m truly grateful!
I just thought I would drop you a line to let you know that I have successfully registered using My Homeschool and the AP moderator had lots of nice things to say about it. You are doing a great job and it took all the registration stress away. It was so easy. Thank you so much!
