    School sports

    Under Delaware Interscholastic Athletic Association (DIAA) regulations 1008 and 1009, students in homeschools or private schools who want to participate in interscholastic school sports must be enrolled full-time at a DIAA member school. See a list of DIAA member schools here.

    Drivers education

    Under DDOE Regulation 540, students in a Delaware homeschool or private school who are also residents of Delaware are entitled to one free drivers education course through an adult education program. Students may take these courses through:

    • A district adult education program
    • The YMCA of Dover

    The following documents are required:

    • An acknowledgement page showing the student’s enrollment in a Delaware homeschool or private school. For a copy of the acknowledgement page, log onto DDOE’s EdAccess - select the nonpublic schools icon - print acknowledgement.
    • A copy of the student’s recent report card/grades for verification of eligibility for free driver education and to prove academic eligibility for a Graduated Driver’s License (GDL) pursuant to 14 C. § 4125.

    Please note: Driver education courses are offered for free but may include a registration fee depending on location. Students who are not successful in their initial driver education course may register for an additional adult driver education program for a fee.
