There are numerous options for how to register as a homeschooler. To be an "official" homeschooler, you register with the school district and follow all kinds of rules and regulations. Most people register with a "church related school" instead. Not all of these umbrellas are specifically or restrictively Christian; some require a statement of faith, others don't; some require regular testing, others don't. We've been quite happy with HomeLife Academy, which is Christian but doesn't require a statement of faith.
There's lots of info at http://www.tnhomeed.com/HSLaw.html - including links to the DOE site and a "non-lawyer" version of the laws, and lists of the various umbrella schools.
