Homeschooling in Japan

Summary of Requirements:

Legal status of home schooling:
The law is vague and the business community is supporting home schooling, so home schoolers are largely left alone.

Compulsory attendance law:
Children ages 7 to 14 are subject to the federal compulsory attendance law. High school is not mandated.

Estimated number of home schoolers:
Between 1,000–5,000 families.
