                           2024 Joy in the Journey Conference Highlights 

Our 2024 Joy in the Journey Family Discipleship conference was a huge success this year!  Zan Tyler and Aby Rinella were the keynote speakers who helped us understand more about the history of the modern homeschooling movement and current cultural issues affecting the family.  Also, there were many inspirational and practical sessions.  A record number of dads came to the event this year as well- that is such a blessing and strength to the families across Wyoming.

We strengthened our connections with homeschoolers across the state: meeting new friends and catching up with old ones!  If you couldn't make it this year, mark your calendars for May 30-31, 2025, and join us.  Stay tuned for details to be announced later in the year!

Homeschooling in Wyoming?

Homeschool Wyoming (formerly HOW) has been supporting homeschoolers in Wyoming since 1996. Homeschool Wyoming recommends and advocates for homeschooling that is parent directed, and privately (not publicly) funded.  While there are other publicly funded "at home" education options, we believe parent directed, privately funded homeschooling gives families freedom to create a customized educational worldview for each child.

 Thankfully, Wyoming is a homeschool friendly state, but there here are still a few things that you need to know to get started on the right path.  

Getting Started 

A brief overview of everything you'll need to get started homeschooling.

Withdraw from Public School

If your child has been enrolled in their local school district, you'll need to notify the district that your child is now a homeschooler.

Wyoming Homeschool Law

What does the Law Require?   

As of 2023,   Wyoming homeschooling is defined by State Statute 21-4-101(a)(v):  “ A home-based educational program means a program of educational instruction provided to a child by the child's parent or legal guardian or by a person designated by the parent or legal guardian."

A home-based educational program must meet the requirements of a Basic Academic Educational Program, which is defined in State Statute 21-4-101(a)(vi)  "Basic academic educational program" is one that provides a sequentially progressive curriculum of fundamental instruction in reading, writing, mathematics, civics, history, literature and science. These curriculum requirements do not require any private school or home-based educational program to include in its curriculum any concept, topic or practice in conflict with its religious doctrines or to exclude from its curriculum any concept, topic or practice consistent with its religious doctrines;"
