Homeward Educators’ Association

“Associations are a great way to legally homeschool in South Carolina with the minimum amount of restrictions placed on the homeschooling family. By homeschooling through an association, a family has more freedom in the choice of their curriculum and style of learning. The low cost of a third option association is also a plus. Homeschooling has never been easier in South Carolina!”
