      • Reading/Language arts
      • Mathematics
      • Social Studies
      • Science
      • Art
      • Music
      • Physical Education
      • Health (May be incorporated through science or physical education)  
      • Students at the secondary level may substitute alternative electives of choice for art, music, and physical education.

    3. Home instruction must be supervised, either by the local public school system or by a private organization approved by the Maryland State Department of Education.
