SCHEA was formed in 1987 to support home educators in South Carolina and to perform a lead role to create legal protection for home education in SC. SCHEA, working with many other concerned individuals and organizations, was instrumental in convincing the state legislature to create the first SC law requiring recognition of home schooling in 1988. Today volunteer home schoolers from across the state continue to work through SCHEA to create opportunities and support to the home school community in SC.
