• COVID-19 Information for Nonpublic Schools

    Due to the current State of Emergency and the closure of Delaware public schools, the Department of Education will also be closing the nonpublic school process.

    The application process will remain open online; however, no new nonpublic schools will be approved until public schools resume and the student verification process can occur. 

    If you choose to begin homeschooling before your school has been approved by the DDOE, please make sure to keep an academic portfolio for your student. Also, please be aware that the DDOE will not backdate any open date or enrollment date. Please review the information below.


    The DDOE will not determine any action steps and/or closure decisions for nonpublic schools; homeschools and private schools. 

    For specific information regarding actions being taken and/or school closures, please reach out to the individual private school.
