Request Membership

Fill out the form below and click the Continue button at the bottom.

Please read this section to understand the nature of our organization so that you know that it suits your family.

To be an active member of YHSA, you must be home educating a child under Act 169, the Religious Freedom Protection Act (RFPA),  the private tutor option, and/or who is under compulsory school age.

Cyber and charter schools are part of the government school system in Pennsylvania.  Children enrolled in these schools cannot be considered home educated, and are therefore excluded from YHSA membership.  Private and public school students are also excluded from YHSA membership.

Also, while we do not require you to be a Christian to be a member, YHSA is a Christian Support Group and we will practice traditions in keeping with the Christian faith as prescribed in the Nicene Creed.  As a Christian group, and in the interest of protecting our children, YHSA excludes those professing the LGBTQ lifestyles.  We define marriage as one man and one woman.

Note that this membership form has two pages.  You must complete both pages.   When you reach the section about Weekly Email, the Forum and Classifieds, we suggest that you leave the settings as they appear.  You can go back in and change them later if you don't like the way they are set.  We have a new member information packet that will help you learn about the website and other parts of YHSA.  Make sure that you copy down your username and password so that you get back into the website later.
