An independent school is a private school which offers off-campus enrollment to families who want their children to study at home. Colorado based schools provide a legal option for meeting the mandatory school attendance requirements in Colorado. These schools may provide any or all of the following support services: diagnostic testing, curriculum design, academic counseling, testing/evaluation, record keeping, holding test scores for non-enrolled families, teacher training, personal support, enrichment classes, newsletters, support groups, field trips, diplomas, graduation ceremonies. The legality of enrolling in a private school has been based in Colorado Case Law, dating from the Bohl Decision in 1988.
Christian Home Educators of Colorado does not offer legal advice or recommend any particular Colorado independent school.
