We believe that every child deserves a quality education—and homeschooling is one of the best ways to achieve that.

No other form of education allows the kind of customization and personalization that homeschooling does. As a homeschooling parent, you are free to teach your child at her own pace, follow her interests, and craft an education plan that meets her specific needs. The result is a unique educational experience that equips your child with the skills and opportunities she needs to really thrive.

We also believe that parents are typically better suited than the government to determine what kind of education works best for their children. Parents know their children’s needs and abilities much better than any government official can—and they’re better able to find ways to meet those needs and nurture those abilities. And so when parents are free to choose and direct their children’s educational experience, it sets the stage for children to thrive.

Our goal: Your child’s success

Because of these beliefs, we’ve made it our goal to tirelessly advocate for the right to homeschool—in courts, legislatures, and anywhere else we can make ourselves heard. Ultimately, we’re here to empower and encourage homeschooling parents as they seek to teach their children in a way that celebrates their uniqueness and nurtures their love of learning.

In short, our mission is to make homeschooling possible.

We know that homeschooling isn’t the best fit for everyone, and that’s okay. What’s important is that every family, regardless of ethnicity, religious background, or economic status, has the freedom to choose how their children are educated—and the support they need to help their children flourish.

For over 40 years, HSLDA has worked to make homeschooling possible for every family that wants to do it. And we’ll continue to make it possible for as long as we’re around.
