COVID-19 Affecting Homeschool Requirements?
Due to the current health pandemic, many states are modifying laws and rules that affect homeschooling. We’re keeping track of every change in the state of Maryland to make it easier for parents to homeschool during the pandemic and beyond.
THE FIRST STEP – You’ve taken the first step towards providing your child with a high-quality, blended education. Thanks for choosing HCHC and entrusting us with your child’s education. We’re a non-profit organization headquartered in Columbia, Maryland serving the State of Maryland.
OUR STORY – In 2014, HCHC was founded by a group of stay at home Moms who met regularly at local Howard County parks. In 2015 with 7 families to serve, we formally organized as a secular cooperative. The following year in 2016, HCHC incorporated as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. In 2017, we were recognized as an education ministry and umbrella group certified by the Maryland State Department of Education. In 2020 we partnered with a prestigious university in Northern Virginia to include a dual-enrollment program where homeschoolers earn Associates Degrees while attending high school.
