Homeschool students can receive all of their core subject instruction at home for the following courses:

  • Reading/Literature
  • Math
  • Science
  • History/Social Studies/Geography/Government
  • Health
  • Phy Ed 

MPS will make every reasonable effort to provide access for a homeschool student to take elective classes such as Drivers Education*, Music, debate and World Languages if there is space in the assigned school program and the student's presence does not disrupt the class environment.  

*State law requires that students must be taught behind the wheel instruction by a licensed, certified Drivers Education teacher.  However, parents can teach the classroom portion of the requirement.  For more clarification, contact the state office for Drivers Education at (651) 296-6911 or visit their website at
