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.
My name is Lisa. I homeschool my 10 year old son. We live in NC. We are studying the civil war and will be visiting Charleston for a battle reenactment next week. Fort Sumter and the HL Hunley are also on our list. While in Charleston, I would like to visit a plantation so that we can contrast life in the South vs life in the North. I would especially like to visit a plantation with slave cabins. I have looked at Boone Hall and Magnolia online. Because this is a weekend trip, we will only be able to visit 1 plantation. Having never visited Charleston myself, I would love to hear a recommendation from someone who has visited or lives in the area. I would also like to spend part of the day exploring a swamp. Would you recommend Cypress Gardens or the swamp at Magnolia Plantation or something else? Thank you in advance for your advice. Lisa
