Homeschooling FAQ’s

1I have sent my email requesting an application. Now what?
Welcome! You will be hearing from us within 1 business day with PayPal instructions to pay your fees. Don't worry, we will send you an email with step by step instructions.
2I do not have a PayPal account? Can I still join Alliance?
Of course! We take checks and money orders also. Your application will not be officially accepted until your payment has cleared, so please make sure you plan accordingly.
3Do I HAVE to have an email address to join Alliance Homeschool Association?
Yes, you do. Email is the primary way we send out updates, important notices, and requests. If you do not provide an email address, your application will be denied. If we receive an reply email stating your email address is no longer active, we will attempt to call you to clarify. If we can not reach you, we will revoke your membership with Alliance.
4What subjects must I teach?
According to SC 59-65-47 Third Option Law explains that the following subjects must include, but are not limited to, the basic instructional areas of: Reading Writing Mathematics Science Social Studies And in grades seven through twelve, composition and literature NOTE: This is usually understood to mean that after 6th grade, reading becomes literature and writing becomes composition. Some families just document these subjects as Reading/Literature, and Writing/Composition regardless of grade level, and in high school these subjects are covered as part of the normal English 1, English 2, etc. sequence.
