    To honor March as Women’s History Month and the upcoming 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment, students will learn about women’s suffrage and important women who lived and worked in Columbia. We will also learn about International Women’s Day and its connection with women’s suffrage. Students will examine what it took to pass the 19th amendment and glean new knowledge of women’s suffrage and women like the Rollins Sisters, Matilda Evans, and Celia Dial Saxon. 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 am 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 HC members, $6 for non-members and $8 for both members and non-members at the door.

    Hello from Irmo

    Hello. I homeschool my 7 year old daughter and do not know any other homeschool families in the area. I've noticed a lot of the posts from those in my area are about two years old. I'm curious if there are others still in the Irmo area.

    Research Roundtable | Modjeska Monteith Simkins

    President's Day Tours | Woodrow Wilson Family Home

    Join Historic Columbia on Monday, Feb. 17 for tours of the Woodrow Wilson Family Home: A Museum of Reconstruction to see how his time in Columbia may have influenced his decisions as President. Normally closed to the public on Mondays, there is no better way to mark President’s Day than by taking a tour of the only Presidential site in South Carolina. The Woodrow Wilson Family Home is also the nation's only museum dedicated to interpreting the post-Civil War Reconstruction period. During the height of Reconstruction, Woodrow Wilson's parents built this house, the only one they would ever own. Although the home has changed hands many times since the teenaged future president lived here, it stands as a reminder of how our city struggled to rebuild itself in the post-war era.

    In alignment with the movement to ratify the 19th Amendment, which would give women the right to vote, a fledgling League of Women Voters Chapter was established in Columbia in 1920. Although it did not survive the initial start-up, a foundation was laid for its resurgence in 1947. With issues ranging from addressing sub-par health standards, to adopting a city manager form of government, the Columbia Chapter of the League became a standard bearer for women-led organizations across the state. In the lead up to the commemoration the centennial of the ratification of the 19th Amendment in August 2020, past presidents of the local league will discuss its founding, early stances, the Chapter’s integration in the early 1960s, and more. To celebrate the centennial of the formation of the League of Women Voters of the U.S. (on February 14, 1920), we will have cake and coffee! This event is free and open to the public, space is limited.

    SC Homeschool Requirements

    Hi Michelle, SC isn't as difficult as it seems if you register with an Option 3 association. You have to keep records, but it's not difficult. Have you had a chance to read through my SC homeschool FAQs?: https://www.carolinahomeschooler.com/homeschool-faqs/ If you decide to register with Carolina Homeschooler, the FAQs on my membership page will describe what's I require: https://www.carolinahomeschooler.com/membership/ Other associations may require more (we're all different), but this will give you an idea of the reality of homeschooling in SC. Let me know if you have any other questions. Warmly, Dianna
  19. Hello! We currently live on the West Coast (we're contemplating a move to SC), and we have complete freedom with our homeschooling here (meaning zero mandatory tests, no required samples, no required attendance, etc). The only thing we have to do in order to legally homeschool here is to sign an annual affidavit stating that we are our own private school entity. That's it! I'm wondering if this type of homeschooling freedom is even possible in South Carolina? Could anyone please give me an accurate answer about this? I would hate to move forward with a cross-country move while having the wrong expectations and information. Thank you so much!!
