Legal Status

Homeschooling is still widely unheard of and not explicitly addressed in the education law. However, families can homeschool through the Hebron School and receive recognition from the government, per Act 2116 of December 22, 2005. Hebron School homeschool diplomas are backed by the government, while diplomas bestowed by a parent are not currently recognized by the government or academic institutions in Guatemala. The Hebron School is working with the National Ministry of Education to introduce homeschool legislation to create further positive changes for families who wish to homeschool.
