Interested in Unschooling in Kansas? We can help

We’re lucky to be living in a country that allows parents to take their kids out of school and educate them at home. In Kansas, homeschool law treats homeschools as non-accredited private schools. Unlike many other states, Kansas doesn’t have many homeschooling regulations. In order to legally homeschool in Kansas, you must meet the following requirements:

  1. Must register your private school with the State Board of Education
  2. Must select a “competent” instructor
  3. Must teach your child for about the same period of time as the public schools (generally 186 days per year)
  4. Must have instruction “be planned and scheduled”
  5. Must test your child periodically

Although unschooling in Kansas via any of these homeschooling options is feasible if you don’t mind these requirements, your child may not have access to a community of peers who they can engage with and learn from on a day to day basis.

Enter The Open School. We have a virtual program that you can enroll in from anywhere in the world. And as a self-directed school, our program is perfectly aligned with unschooling. We have no required subjects and no tests. Instead, students design virtual activities to do with other students and staff, including art projects, video games, workshops, one-on-one lessons, and anything else you can imagine. It’s a community of self-directed learners, and a great place for unschoolers to make deep, lasting friendships.

If you want your child to be a free learner in Kansas, with access to a supportive and caring community of peers and adults, a virtual private school may be your best bet. You can read more about our virtual program, or contact us directly, by clicking one of the buttons below.
