Give Them the Freedom to Learn & Grow

We believe every child is unique. That children should learn in ways that meet their needs. And that you want the best for your child. Homeschooling gives you the freedom to personalize their education so they can realize their potential.

HSLDA passionately advocates for the freedom to homeschool and offers support for every stage of your homeschool journey.

How is COVID-19 affecting homeschool requirements?

I've only been a member for a few months, but I joined in crisis and got such an amazing peace of mind. I will be a member of HSLDA until I no longer homeschool and I'll recommend them for life.

I initially joined HSLDA for the legal protection, but have found you to be an invaluable resource. I have found your special education references to be a wonderful asset, and we are making progress where the school and therapists were making none.

HSLDA is a fantastic organization! We have been members for years and continue our supporting their efforts through membership even though our youngest graduated two years ago. Valuable resources and wonderful people.
