There are three ways to legally homeschool in Tennessee. You can find more information about homeschooling in Tennessee through HSLDA or the TN DOE.

  1. Register with your local Board of Education.

  2. Register with a church-related “umbrella” (Category IV - CRS) school.

  3. Register with an accredited online school/program.

Below is a list of commonly used umbrella schools (CRS). This list is not all-inclusive and does not reflect an endorsement by WTHSA.

If there is a school you recommend that is not listed, you can email us at and we will be happy to look into adding it.
