Hello, and welcome to the LCHEA website! We are a non-profit, Christian support group established for homeschooling parents in the Lowcountry of South Carolina. We have been in existence for over 30 years and our purpose is to provide support, guidance, and encouragement to one another based on Christian principles. These principles are outlined in our Statement of Faith. Among the many things offered to LCHEA members are field trip opportunities for every age group, spelling bee, testing, prom, father/daughter dance, clubs, STEM Expo, yearbook, graduation and much, much more!
Please note, LCHEA is a homeschool support group only and it does not give you legal homeschooling status in the state of South Carolina. Please refer to the SC Homeschool Laws page to learn more of the three options available within our state.
Take some time to browse through our public page information to learn more about who we are and what is available for your family. If you feel that LCHEA may be a good fit for you, please consider joining us for the school year.
Please note that LCHEA is a support group,
NOT an accountability group.
An accountability group is an organization you must join to be legally homeschooling in the state of South Carolina. There are many options, please see THIS PAGE for more details.
A support group is an optional organization you may join to add enrichment to your homeschool experience. They add opportunities for field trips, extracurricular classes, play dates, events, and more. There are many benefits to joining a support group, but a support group is optional. Please see THIS PAGE for the benefits of joining LCHEA.
