Homeschool Philippines: Tuition Fees, School Lists, and Requirements

Homeschool or Homeschooling in the Philippines refers to the method of learning where students study at home or in places outside of the classrooms.

The schools that offer homeschooling curriculums in the Philippines for Elementary students, High School students, Senior High students, and College students are called Homeschool Providers.

Homeschooled high school and college students study their lessons on their own, while homeschooled elementary students are usually taught by their parents, tutors, or online teachers via webcams and online applications.

During homeschooling, there are situations where students only need to go to school to take the major examinations based on the curriculum of homeschool providers accredited by DepED.

The homeschooling academic year (duration) in the Philippines is between 10 months to 12 months.

Homeschooling is allowed in the Philippines according to the Philippine Constitution article 14 section 1 (2) as quoted:

“Establish and Maintain, a system of free public education in the elementary and high school levels. Without limiting the natural rights of parents to rear their children, elementary education is compulsory for all children of school age.”

Section 4 (1) of the same article number indicates that the state shall regulate and supervise all educational institutions. As quoted:

“The State recognizes the complimentary roles of public and private institutions in the educational system and shall exercise reasonable supervision and regulation of all educational institution.”

Homeschooled students can transfer to public and private schools provided the students obtain accreditation from the Department of Education of the Philippines (DepEd) according to the DepEd Memo number 216 s. 1997 (DECS Memorandum No. 216 s. 1997).

The advantages of homeschooling for students include keeping them away from a bad school environment, receiving personalized and quality education, and allowing the parents to do hands-on teaching about academic subjects, religion, and culture.

The disadvantages of homeschooling for students include a lack of socialization with fellow students, requires time management and discipline, and can cause boredom.

The pros of homeschooling the students for parents include allowing their kids to travel with them as they work abroad, while the cons are it requires time and patience teaching the kids, and high tuition fees.

How much is the Tuition Fee for Homeschooling in the Philippines?

The tuition fee for homeschooling in the Philippines is between 34000 pesos to 80000 pesos per year per student. It may include the registration fee, tuition fee, and miscellaneous fees. Tuition fee is the sum of money that students pay to the school to be admitted to the homeschool program. It can be paid to the school on an installment basis or in full.

The homeschool provider’s tuition fee varies on the location of the school.  Homeschool providers in rural areas typically have lower tuition fees than their counterparts in urbanized areas.

    Hello. Thanks for this article. My husband and I have talked to our kids about homeschooling and they are okay with it although it took them time especially our son. We just thought this is the safest thing to do right now because of the pandemic. I hope they accept students who live abroad. This is the first thing that I will inquire. Stay safe and thanks again.

      Hi Josie, you can inquire to them directly. You may also ask them about the tuition fee rate if the student is based abroad or in the Philippines.
