    Homeschooling on Nevis

    Advertisements



    Does anyone know if it is possible to homeschool your children while on Nevis? I am wanting to keep them on track with their American curriculum.

    Several of my classmates did it in Dominica. They enrolled their kids in Online public schools in their states before brining them to the island, which follow the same curriculum as the traditional schools.

    Thank you for that. The question comes from the fact that on the island of Saba, home school is not allowed and the kids MUST be put in the Dutch school system. My question is, does the St Kitts/Nevis government allow US students to not attend school if they receive home school from an accredited US home school program?

    I see. sorry, not familiar with the rules in Nevis even though I have visited before. I could be wrong, but it's a self-governed island like Dominica and you can pretty much get away with it (if you know what I mean)

    What we did (2007/08) was used the private school there for social connection, and teachers were Western, (Lynn Jeffers, probably not there any longer) and then supplemented with "K through 12". As of back then, you are not a citizen of Nevis, so the government is not tracking you in any way. Additionally, Nevis was somewhat disorganized, I don't think they have the desire nor resources, nor mindset to keep track of that.

    Are you already on the island or arriving soon? My wife and one other woman will be homeschooling while we are all on Nevis. You may want to get in contact with them.
