Home Schooling

Under South Carolina’s home school law, children can learn at home and do not have to enroll full-time in a traditional school. Children may take online classes, use home-based instruction, or attend K-12 and even college classes in various settings.
There are many home school groups and resource centers around the state to help families find great opportunities for their children. South Carolina law provides parents with a choice of three (3) possible accountability options.

Choose the accountability option that is best for your family: local school district oversight, membership in the South Carolina Association of Independent Home Schools (SCAIHS), or participation in a local “third option” association. An explanation of the three options and a list of South Carolina home school associations is available from the SC Department of Education or at Palmetto Family Council.
