Required Question for New Subscribers

You are requesting access to the portion of SWIHE's web portal that is private.  It is only for homeschooling families in SW Indiana and its tri-state region. 

Please hold your registration until you have begun homeschooling (preschool or later) or have withdrawn from your current school.

To keep this site private we need to verify that you are a homeschooler.  In the box below, please provide one of the following:
  • Name at least one active homeschool family or a co-op leader who knows that you are a homeschooler.  If the administrators do not know you personally, then we will contact that homeschool family to vouch for you.  Naming two or three families would be better (better chance of us knowing one and being able to contact them quickly).
  • Name the curricula you are using.
  • Whether your child is registered in a school or withdrawn and when you plan to start homeschooling. 
  • Reasons why you decided to homeschool. 

This is a required field, so if you do not know homeschoolers in SWIHE (maybe you are new to the area), just explain that in this box.
