Home schooling in Ho Chi Minh city

Hello all,
We have a 4 year old son and we intend to do home schooling. I tried to google about the existing home schools in Ho Chi Minh city, but nothing interesting or up to date came up.
Are there any parents who are already into home schooling their children or can give some advice?
We would also like to have play dates.
Thank you.

I am in the same situation with my child, 7 years old and try to find people to discuss about any solutions. We have a tutoring facility in district 2 but only for VN kids Sat. and Sundays.  Our British teachers are working with VN adult groups outside our building ( 600 sqmtr.)

Hi Michael

My name is Jennie and we are originally from California. We currently live in HCMC district 7. We are currently home schooling our 8&9 year old daughters. It's our first time home schooling our daughters and a challenge to find homeschoolers.  If you and your family visit HCMC let us know; we would love a play date. Best wishes to you and your family!

Hello Ms. Jennie Pham,
My apologies for such a delay in replying to your msg.
I will send an email to you at your email address, for further communication.


  I am new to this forum. I am from India and recently moved to Vietnam. I would like to know the schooling option for my son who is in 2nd Standard now. Pls help me to understand the home schooling option


Hello Venu,
Welcome to Vietnam.
You may search for "Home Schooling" on the internet to get some basic ideas of what it is.
But as a start, it is teaching a child at home, instead of in a school.
The reason to teach a child at home could be any, ranging from financial to cultural to language to safety and so on, but it requires a lot of planning and dedication, not to forget the time that goes into it.

Which district do you live in? You can filter your search for any home schools accordingly.

A play group where children come together to play or spend time studying together isn't technically a "home school". It would be more of a mini school rather than a "home school".

Hope that helps.


If you speak English, there are plenty of resources on the internet, including those that provide the equivalent of a USA High School Diploma, which permits your graduate to attend universities in the USA.  Just so you know and based on studies, home schooled students in the USA do better on entrance exams and are more successful in college than students that attend public schools.   But remember, home schooled children in the USA usually have a mom or dad that is college educated and stays home to educate and teach their children.  The number 1 reason why this is so popular in the USA is because of the deterioration and social/political agendas of public schools.

Hi Sushant
  Thanks for the reply..
I am staying in Dist 7.. Where do u stay? Do you have any better schooling option?


Try Connections Academy in Baltimore, Maryland. On line studies which are monitored by the school. Lessons assigned and they must be completed on time. Regular assessments with live classes with the teachers. Becoming popular worldwide so must be worth a look.

Good luck

Hi Vinu,

Sorry for the late reply.
I am in Tan Phu district.
Currently my son goes to a bilingual school.
I teach him Arts, Mathematics and English in the evening time.

Have you got your son enrolled in any school or are you giving home schooling a try?
