HSLDA membership can save you money in many ways!

Your membership includes services that could cost you hundreds (or even thousands!) of dollars elsewhere—services like attorney consultation about any homeschool question, legal representation if your homeschool is taken to court, a 24/7 hotline for emergency legal assistance, and much more.

HSLDA offers specially negotiated discounts with outside vendors for travel, technology, curriculum, and more through our Member Savings program. Click here to start saving today!

Members get discounts on graduation supplies, books, and more at the HSLDA Store

Homeschool students receive their diplomas from their parents. Since parents are the ones who structure and organize a homeschool student’s education, they are also the ones qualified to judge when that education has been successfully completed and a diploma earned.

A few states have high school graduation requirements for homeschoolers, so you can check your state’s homeschool laws on our interactive legal map. If you’re an HSLDA member, please contact your state’s legal team if you have any further questions.

Are you wondering more about where to get diplomas, what you should put on a diploma, and whether you should have your child take a GED test? Check out our Diploma FAQs.

You receive a full year of the member benefits listed below for less than you would pay for an hour of an attorney’s time almost anywhere else!
