About

Homeschooling parents and children

Making Homeschooling Possible—Together

Every child is different and should have the freedom to learn in a safe, loving environment at their own pace.

  • We partner with our 95,000 member families, donors, homeschool leaders, legislators, and others who want to protect this freedom.
  • We’ve been trusted for over 35 years to advance and protect homeschool freedom in the courts, legislatures, and in the court of public opinion.
  • We equip parents with resources, educational consultants, and Compassion grants because we love homeschooling and want more families to experience it.
  • We know the benefits and challenges of homeschooling personally—most of our staff are homeschool parents and grads.

Our sister organization, HSLDA Action, is a 501(c)(4) organization and is permitted to endorse political candidates and engage in lobbying that is germane to its purposes. HSLDA Action’s Political Action Committee endorses candidates who support homeschool freedom and lobbies on behalf of homeschool freedom.

Yes. HSLDA’s leaders, directors, and employees are Christians who seek to honor God by providing the very highest levels of service in defending homeschool freedom and equipping homeschoolers. And because of our beliefs, we want every family to have the freedom to direct their children’s education, no matter their background or religious affiliation. Therefore, we do not make religious beliefs a condition of membership or any other service we offer. You can learn more about HSLDA here.
