West Virginia does not recognize home schools as private schools.
West Virginia has a compulsory attendance statute, WV Code 18-8-1(a). Beginning with the 2011–12 high school freshman cohort class of students, the maximum age of compulsory school attendance is 17. WV Code 18-8-1(c) contains two subdivisions that allow an exemption to compulsory attendance for “home instruction.” Note: A homeschooled student is not considered a private school student in West Virginia.
§18-8-1. Compulsory school attendance; exemptions.
(c) A child is exempt from the compulsory school attendance requirement set forth in section one-a of this article if the requirements of either subdivision (1) or subdivision (2) of this subsection, both relating to home instruction, are met.
