Homeschooling in North Carolina?

How would you get a license to homeschool a high schooler in North Carolina? I have been looking but haven't found the answer.

    North Carolina isn't the easiest state to homeschool in, but it's doable.


    Parents/guardians residing in North Carolina and desiring, in lieu of conventional school attendance, to home school their children who are at least age 7 but not yet age 16 must:

    Hold at least a high school diploma or its equivalent;

    Send to DNPE a Notice of Intent to Operate a Home School. The notice must include the name and address of the school along with the name of the school's owner and chief administrator;

    Elect to operate under either Part 1 or Part 2 of Article 39 of the North Carolina General Statutes as a religious or as a non-religious school;

    Operate the school "on a regular schedule, excluding reasonable holidays and vacations, during at least nine calendar months of the year";

    Maintain at the school disease immunization and annual attendance records for each student;

    Have a nationally standardized achievement test administered annually to each student. The test must involve the subject areas of English grammar, reading, spelling, and mathematics. Records of the test results must be retained at the home school for at least one year and made available to DNPE when requested. Also, see testing FAQS;

    Notify DNPE when the school is no longer in operation.
