Is homeschooling legal in Mauritius?

Mauritian law requires that children attend school up to the end of the academic year in which he or she turns 16. Though the law does not specify if your child needs to attend a physical school or an online school, as a Mauritian citizen you would need to confirm if the school is registered with the Ministry of Education.

If you're an expatriate living in Mauritius, you are legally allowed to consider alternative education options. If you decide to permanently settle in Mauritius and send your children to a local private (or government) school, the Ministry of Education will require documentation providing proof of two years of school attendance and a letter of transfer.

How to start homeschooling in Mauritius

Selecting the appropriate curriculum will be the first step in starting your homeschooling journey in Mauritius. Common curriculums chosen by emigrating families are the International British Curriculum (or Cambridge Curriculum) and the K-12 (Kindergarten to Grade 12) curriculum. 

When choosing your homeschooling curriculum, ensure that there are test centres available near you. Also keep the possibility of integrating into a local school in mind, especially when moving older children from one curriculum to another. 

Finally, consider the workload that will be involved with your selected curriculum. The international British curriculum allows parents to focus on what is most important for their child, whilst cutting out excess subjects that only add to the stress of moving abroad.
