Registration is optional for private schools, however, they may register through the State Board of Education. Nonpublic schools may also apply for recognition from the State Board of Education after one year of being registered and after adhering to guidelines regarding the administration, organization, instructional programs, school facilities, food services and personnel.

Teacher certification is required at the discretion of the individual school governance, however, the Illinois State Board of Education encourages all instructors to have at least a baccalaureate degree in the subject they are teaching.

Recognized non-public schools must have the same graduation requirements as public schools in Illinois.

Children attending nonpublic schools are required to have a health exam including a tuberculosis test and proof of immunization.
