  4. Partial Homeschool

    Hi Stacey, I don't personally know of any, but hopefully someone else here will be able to help. Warmly, Dianna
  5. Earlier
  6. Can anyone make suggestions or steer me in the right direction of a learning institution in the Charleston area (Mount Pleasant preferred) that has a partial homeschool program? Go to school 2-3 days per week and the other days I homeschool? My seven year old is enrolled in the Charleston County school district while also a competitive gymnast. This requires having to be at school by 7:15 each morning while practicing four days a week after school for 3-4 hours at a time. She goes straight from school to practice and makes it home just before 8:00 p.m. to go to bed and do it again the next day. Something has to give. She doesn't want to be pulled out of school all together but I'm trying to find some kind of compromise.

  10. Hi, I am totally new to the whole homeschooling idea! My child isn’t even school age but I’m trying to research my education options now. Are there any large co ops in the area that meet 1-2 days a week?
  11. Homeschool Friday: Columbia in Wartimes

    What was life like in Columbia during the numerous wars that our country fought? Students will examine what occurred on the Homefront from the Revolutionary War through Vietnam. We will learn about what Columbians did to help and to protest, as well the various war efforts throughout our long history. All homeschool students are invited to participate in Historic Columbia’s Homeschool Friday programs on the first Friday of the month. Each month’s program is from 10 - 11:30 a.m. and includes hands-on activities while students learn and explore different themes and historic sites with Historic Columbia. Homeschool Friday programs are designed for students of elementary and middle school age levels. Homeschool Friday is open to families and homeschool groups of less than 10 students. For larger groups, we recommend arranging a separate visit to explore that month's topic. Program participants should gather in the Gift Shop at Robert Mills on the day of the program unless otherwise noted. The cost is per student, with an accompanying adult free. Homeschool Fridays are $5 for members, $6 for non-members and $8 for both members and non-members at the door. If you have questions, would like to be on our mailing list, or if you would like to register for the entire year of Homeschool Friday programs, please contact us by email or call 803.252.1770 x 26.
  12. I plan on doing another writing competition again soon.

  14. Can anyone tell me a free accredited homeschool program that I can use with my 7th grader and kindergartener if I want to start homeschooling them? Thank you!!
