In order to support Texas home schooling families, the THSC Association continues to develop membership benefits including events, consulting, legal help, and offers and discounts on products and services specific to you. Please check out the benefits you can receive today:
Home School Legal Consultation & Advocacy
THSC advocates for its members through legal consultation, advocacy with government officials, and in court proceedings on issues pertaining to home schooling, including Child Protective Services (CPS). THSC supplies members with an after-hours number to call in the case of an emergency CPS situation. THSC will occasionally handle situations for nonmembers that we believe may set a precedent for all Texas families.
Special Needs Consultant and Support
Our Special Needs department offers one-on-one support for THSC members with struggling learners by providing consulting services relating to curriculum resources, therapy options, and home school IEP accommodations and goals.
Teacher and Student Photo ID Cards
Instant Customized Diplomas
THSC is proud to offer four distinctive and professional quality high school diploma templates to our members; so you can capture this time of celebration and remembrance with a professional certificate that will serve your sons or daughters well as they continue their academic training or their chosen field of endeavor.
Grade School Report Card Template
A report card for the elementary and middle school years can be helpful for your own record keeping as well as for receiving discounts from businesses for good grades.
High School Transcript Templates
These formulated grade transcript templates will make the tracking of your student’s subjects, grades, and credits much easier to accomplish. A transcript is the official record of subjects, grades, and credits your students complete in their ninth through twelfth grade years.
FREE Download of THSC’s Lone Star Study – Updated in 2016
One of the Texas home school requirements is to teach your child(ren) five basic subjects. Good Citizenship is one of those subjects. THSC provides our members with the Lone Star Study, a Good Citizenship curriculum that will help you accomplish the state’s home school requirements.
FREE Download of THSC’s Handbook for Texas Home Schoolers
Does the school district have to approve your curriculum? Since your children do not attend public school, do you get a break on your property taxes? What do you do if CPS comes to your door? Find answers to these questions and many more in the Handbook for Texas Home Schoolers.
