Starting with the 2013-2014 school year, we're offering membership services for South Carolina families who homeschool under Section 59-65-47 of our homeschool law. (Families outside of SC who don't need our accountability services, and don't want to participate in our online learning community, are still welcome to join us on our group trips without becoming members.)
We'll strive to provide an interactive online learning community for students and parents. We plan to provide optional online writing workshops, math challenges, book groups, history e-field trips, science projects, and more. We may not have something going every day (due to my trip schedule), but we'll try to organize as many virtual learning experiences as possible for our children to enjoy. We'll also plan outside field trips and meetings so children (and parents) can meet face to face.
Our goal is to encourage a collaborative learning environment for students, as well as a supportive community for parents.
However, we won't provide transcripts, class rank, diploma, or graduation services for students during the 2013-14 school year, and our communication is primarily via email and messaging, not by phone (for time-management and record-keeping purposes). If any of these factors are important to you, please choose a different association for your family. Fees are $75 for the first student, and $25 each additional student in the same family.
