In this tutorial, we visit some secrets to the HSLDA, and we show you how you can benefit from the HSLDA and where you should begin!
When homeschool parents contact us, or a new homeschool parent needs to know where to start, I always direct them to the HSLDA.
We don’t want to just tell you to visit the website, you can, but you will have to search around to find everything you need. This isn’t bad in itself, research is good for homeschool parents!
You can spend hours gathering your resources, and even a year trying to plan out “how.” However, if you are new to this whole homeschool world, or never heard of the HSLDA, even if you want to know more about the mysterious of this entity, you are in the right place!
Some parents are thrown into homeschooling for various reasons, they are termed “Accidental Homeschoolers.” They can be those who suddenly found themselves in a need to homeschool, when they never expected to be doing it. They include families whose children have experienced bullying, difficulty with school personnel, medical issues, and a variety of other unanticipated situations, like the current world-wide pandemic, that doesn’t seem to be leaving.
Most of these parents do not have time to plan or research homeschool options for their kids, thus we come in!
Hopefully, we can be of some help. And after this tutorial, if you still have questions, feel free to leave us a comment or email us!

I have personally worked with an homeschool lawyer to get my homeschool networking and PSP underway for my future Homeschool With Us program.
They have tons of advice to offer and an exclusive leadership group that I am a part of. You can talk to and hear discussions on many parts of being in homeschool leadership. Not to mention, they also have discounts into other exclusive homeschool groups.
