The School Year

(Additional Information Coming Soon)

Homeschoolers under the third option have the freedom to set up their school year in any manner they please, because the school year does not need to conform to the traditional school schedule of August-May.

For instance, if you wanted to school year round you could school 5 days a week for 3 weeks and take every fourth week off. This year round plan would still leave you with 4 extra weeks for Christmas and/or vacations.

There are 365 days in a year (366 on Leap Years). You may choose to homeschool on any day of the year.

However to help maintain records and close out files at the end of an instructional year each association has a year ending date in which you should have your 180 days completed by.

Homeschoolers moving to SC from out-of-state, year round homescoolers, those with a personal crisis, or family emergencies usually can receive an extension on a case by case basis from their third option association. You should present your situation to your association to receive any extension or exception.

Additionally, each homeschool chooses the hours in which they will homeschool. Some families prefer to school early in the morning, some in the afternoon, some in the evening, some do a split day schooling approach, and some will use a combination which will vary throughout the school year. Each homeschool, and the students that are within that homeschool are unique, we are lucky that we can do what works best for our families.
