Home School Terminology

CCS is a THSC Partner Group

The Texas Home School Coalition provides a wealth of information for the homeschool community and more info can be found on their website at www.thsc.org.

Home School Terminology

THSC definition of a home schooled student:
A home schooled student predominantly receives instruction in a general, elementary or secondary education program that is provided by the parent—or a person standing in parental authority—in or through the child’s home [Texas Education Code 29.916 (a)].

The parent or person standing in parental authority might contract with outside sources in order that the student receives additional instruction. For example, a private tutor, co-op class or a college class. However, this source or these sources do not circumvent the parent’s role in determining the overall success or failure of the student.

Home school group:
All home school groups on our list seek to serve families who meet the definition of home schooling. This means their children participate in the group, but the group will not attempt to become an authority over the student’s education, per the definition of home schooling. THSC Partner Groups meet criteria as defined on THSC Types of Groups.

Private school:
Private school is a broad category of describing any non-public school. This includes traditional accredited private schools that require daily attendance and tuition, unaccredited private schools which are similar but not subject to the same accreditation requirements, home schools which are a type of private school but not regulated the same way as other types of private school, and other options that are a hybrid of these different types. For example, in a university model school, a student might attend the school 2-3 days per week and then be schooled at home for the rest of the week.
