The SC Homeschooling Connection encourages each family to find an association that is a good fit for your homeschool. Everyone has individual preferences about their doctor, their grocery store, even their church. It’s a matter of deciding what works for you and your family. So, find the Homeschool Association that is right for you.
It can be very overwhelming to start with. As you are reviewing the homeschool associations directory, it may be helpful to think about what you want or need first. Minimal invasion does not mean minimal assistance.
- More structure or less structure?
- Record keeping requirements?
- Religious or not?
- Statewide or local?
- What sort of assistance do you need or want?
All of these things will help you narrow down the field. If you need lots of advice and feedback and a structured outline, there are groups that offer that. If you just want the basics, there are groups that allow you the freedom to figure everything else out on your own. And a range of everything else in between, too.
