Welcome to the official site for the Perry County Homeschoolers
We are a Christian, non-profit, volunteer ministry committed to giving information, guidance, support and encouragement to homeschooling families in Perry County and neighboring counties. We believe God, in His Word, has given parents the authority and responsibility to educate their children in a godly manner. We seek to nurture each parent and child within the group and without, as God commanded us to do. While we do not require that members be Christians, members must be willing to hold to our standards.
Homeschooling is a great way to teach your children while instilling them with morals and family values.
Support Group Policies:
Membership dues are $10.00 per year, per family.
A Mandatory meeting is generally held in early June to plan the upcoming school year and collect dues.
Members are expected to participate in at least one activity by volunteering to coordinate or serve in an event or activity. New Members receive a one year grace from service.
For Non-Members - Some activities may require a non-member fee if you wish to participate. The upcoming events listed on this homepage are local area events or PCHS events open to non-members. Should you decide to become a member, you will then have access to other field trips, special events, service opportunities, and social activities that are not available to those who are not currently members. We encourage you to become a member to receive the full benefits of the group. Feel free to contact us at email@example.com for more information.

HSLDA Compassion, aptly named, is the compassionate side of HSLDA. Since 1994, Compassion has provided tangible hope to struggling families to help them homeschool through hard times. Last year, $2,000,000 from generous donors like you was used to provide curricula grants, special needs materials, and disaster relief to all kinds of homeschooling families - widows and widowers, single parents, military families, grieving families. Compassion grants provide more than books and materials – they provide hope as homeschooling families realize they are not alone in their commitment to educate their children at home.
Are you or a homeschooling family you know facing a hardship with your homeschooling?
If you know of any homeschooling family in the area that could use some help, please feel free to contact me (email is my first-choice method of contact) or tell them about HSLDA Compassion. I will be more than happy to speak with anyone. Sometimes a family doesn't need monetary help, though. Sometimes they just need some prayer and support. We are here for this, too.
At this time of year, many are led to give to a program that is special to them. In Pennsylvania, HSLDA Compassion has its own State Ambassador Fund. Any funds donated or raised go directly to help homeschool families in the state of PA. If you would like to donate to our state's fund, you may contact me directly, or visit the State Ambassador Fund donation page on-line:
Simply choose PA from the dropdown menu to make sure that your donation goes directly to the PA State Fund.
Why Join HSLDA?
We recommend that homeschooling families join HSLDA. Even if you never experience legal trouble yourself, your HSLDA membership will help enable other homeschooling families to get the legal help they need and will help defend our right to homeschool here in central PA. Membership in HSLDA also gives you personal access to the legal staff; HSLDA's experienced high school, special needs, and Toddlers to Tweens consultants; and discounts through HSLDA's PerX program. PCHS members SAVE $15 on the HSLDA membership price when you enter our Discount Group code on the HSLDA membership form!
