At the South Carolina Association of Independent Home Schools (SCAIHS), we offer much more than accountability for your homeschool. Homeschooling is a life-changing decision, for you and your child. The board and staff are committed to helping families experience success in home schooling. We offer services to member families, far exceeding any other path, including educational and curriculum counseling, teacher training seminars, and support from a qualified and well-trained staff.
