Need information about homeschooling in South Carolina? We're here to help! The different areas of our website will tell you more about us, explain how to legally homeschool in SC, answer a lot of the questions newcomers ask, provide information about local events and group trips, provide links to resources, and help you connect with our community and local support groups.
Need an association to comply with SC homeschool law?
We've recently expanded to provide Third Option membership as mandated by Section 59-65-47 in the SC Code of Laws. Our membership services focus on providing an interactive online community for students and parents. Our plans include optional educational workshops, projects, classes, and field trips that will encourage a collaborative learning environment for students, as well as a supportive community for parents. Whether you need us only for Third Option coverage, or want to participate fully in our online (and offline) community, we hope you'll consider joining us for the 2013-2014 school year.
Many of the resources at this site aren't specific to SC, and you can still join us on our trips without becoming a member. If you want to become a member to participate in our online educational community, that's fine, too. We'd love for you to join us!
We started out in 2004 to support
South Carolina's homeschooling families. In 2006, we began coordinating group trips that now serve thousands of
homeschoolers all over the US and Canada. And now
we're growing again!
Beginning June 1, 2013, we're offering services for South Carolina families homeschooling under Section 59-65-47 of our homeschool law. In addition to providing the accountability required by SC, we'll offer an interactive online learning community that features writing workshops, math challenges, book groups, history e-field trips, science projects, and more.
We'll also offer members-only field trips, camping trips, and events for children (and parents) to meet face to face. Families who don't need the accountability services required by SC law, but want to participate in our learning community, are welcome to join us.
Members who join us this summer can participate in our self-paced writing workshops, a beginning Latin class, book groups, math challenges, and other educational contests where students are encouraged to learn new skills (or keep them fresh over the summer) while earning chances to win prizes.
Beginning August 19, 2013, we'll begin a series of group learning activities, such as an Oregon Trail e-Journey that will incorporate history, science, math, and writing; a novel-writing project (parents can join in, too!); on-site science and history projects throughout the state; and more.
We're excited to see where this new direction will take us and hope you'll join us for our journey. To find out more, visit our membership area.
