Carolina Homeschooler was created in 2004 to increase communication and support for South Carolina’s third option homeschoolers. We began coordinating group trips in 2006, and it wasn’t long before families from all over the United States and Canada started joining us on our trips.
Families kept asking us to provide the accountability services required by South Carolina law, so we added Option 3 (Third Option) services in 2013. We also added more local field trips, camps, classes, and a supportive online community for our students and their parents.
Here are some of the most frequently asked questions we receive about our organization:
Is Carolina Homeschooler a Third Option association?
Yes, we expanded in 2013 to provide accountability services for SC families operating under Section 59-65-47.
Can I join your association if I don’t live in South Carolina?
Only homeschooling families who live in South Carolina can join.
When do you open registration for each school year?
Usually in January or February.
When do you close registration for each school year?
Usually toward the end of August.

How do I find out more about homeschooling in South Carolina?
My homeschool FAQs should answer many of the questions you have. I’ve also written a guide for homeschoolers. You can buy it on Amazon, BarnesandNoble.com, and other places, or check it out at your local library. If they don’t have it, please ask them to email me and I’ll donate a copy for their collection so you can borrow it for free.
