Homeschooling in Romania

An increasing number of families are turning to homeschooling in Romania as an alternative to public school.

High profile homeschooling families include Romanian actor Dragos Bucur and his wife, singer Dana Nalbaru, who in 2016 took the decision to withdraw their daughter from traditional school in order to homeschool her.

Current estimates indicate around 500 children are presently homeschooling in Romania with this number rising year on year.

Homeschooling and the Law

Romanian law does not presently recognise homeschooling as a legal alternative for education. However, according to Didgi 24 news channel, the Education Minister had confirmed in 2016 that they would be ‘looking into the legal framework that regulates the system’ The Homeschooling Association of Romania was founded in 2002 and they have been actively pushing to make homeschooling in Romania legal. A number of Romanian homeschooling groups and websites dedicated to homeschooling are now also present online.

Homeschooling Schools

Currently Homeschooling families register themselves to school officials as Private Schools. Another alternative for parents considering homeschooling in Romania is to enrol their children in a study centre. The Cluj Study Center operates a blended learning approach where distance learning using Wolsey Hall Oxford courses is combined with a traditional schooling environment.
