|HOME SCHOOLING / INTERNATIONAL|
Compulsory Education ages: Ages 5–14, when a child is 5 years old by September 1
Homeschooling is legal, per §60.1 of the Education & Training Act (14 April 2010), which states: Children must receive “suitable education either by regular attendance at school or otherwise.”
Under the “or otherwise” phrase in the law, families can legally homeschool. However, homeschooling is uncommon.
None at this time. If you have knowledge of homeschooling in Belize, please contact HSLDA. Thank you!
