HOME SCHOOLS

Home school visits with fewer than 10 students do not require a reservation. However, all home schools, regardless of home state, must meet the criteria of NC General Statute 115c-563 to receive the school rate (e.g. present a valid ID, include children from not more than two households, instruction provided by parents or legal guardians, etc.).

Home schools must provide written proof from an approving authority (state, county, etc.) when they check-in at the Ticket Window. Home schools will only receive the school rate when they show their proof of home schooling upon their arrival.

All home school visits must occur between Monday – Friday and during the traditional

calendar school year (August 15th – June 15th).

Home school rates:

  • Preschool: FREE
  • Students K – 6th grades: $3 each
  • Students 7th – 12th grades: $6 each

If a home school has more 10+ students, one teacher/adult will be admitted for free per 10 students. If a home school has less than 10 students, ALL adults are $10 each.
