If you live in South Carolina and would like to register with HomeLife Academy, it is not necessary for you to obtain approval from the state for your K-12 grade students with the local school board or county. In South Carolina, there are three, two of which are more common options. You can enroll with a South Carolina Homeschooling Association like HomeLife Academy (group option 3). Another option is to homeschool by enrolling in the South Carolina Association of Independent Home Schools (SCAIHS) and follow the rules and policies for homeschooling that SCAIHS requires. Additional information about SCAIHS is available on its website. When enrolling with an association, you will only be required to meet the requirements for that school. A third option is to obtain approval from a state board of trustees. Please read the HSLDA summary below carefully as it is important to know your legal rights.
