Australian State and Territory Home Education Information
Home education is a legally recognised alternative to enrolling a child in school in all Australian states and territories. Each state or territory has their own regulatory body and requirements to register for home education.
The HEA Registration Support Team is available to help answer questions you may have in regards to state registration, or offer support if you need. Email While we hope you will consider membership with us, the HEA supports Australian home educators regardless of membership.
