CSRA Home Education Association|
Providing Christian resources to the homeschool community
of the Central Savannah River Area.
What is the CSRA HEA?
The Central Savannah River Area (CSRA) is a region centered by, and surrounding, Augusta, Georgia. This region is comprised of thirteen Georgia counties and five South Carolina counties.
The Georgia counties includes: Lincoln, Wilkes, Washington, Warren, Taliaferro, Hancock, McDuffie, Columbia, Richmond, Burke, Jefferson, Glascock, and Jenkins.
The South Carolina counties include: McCormick, Edgefield, Aiken, Barnwell and Allendale.
The CSRA Home Education Association is a Christian association of homeschoolers seeking to encourage one another in the privilege of training up their children to love and serve the Lord their God. The Board of Directors and Coordinators each annually sign a statement of faith. Though individual member families do not have to be professed Christians, they are asked to sign a statement of agreement to our rules of conduct. The association functions as a result of a large group of volunteers - not paid staff - seeking to serve other homeschoolers. We are truly blessed to have such a fine group of men and women sacrificing their time and resources.
How Do I Join?
Simply click on the link below, print and fill out the application, and then send it (along with the appropriate membership fee) to the address printed on the application!
Because we want to protect the privacy of our homeschool members we do not offer online membership registration at this time. Applications must be received through the mail. It takes 3-4 weeks for applications to be processed.
2015-16 memberships expire June 30, 2016. The application for 2016-17 will be available by May 16, 2016.
What Are The Benefits of Membership?
Though there are many benefits, the four primary benefits that most families focus on are:
Our association is able to provide nationally recognized testing for a reasonable price. As the association is staffed by volunteers, we currently only need to charge $20.00 per student.
Others may refer to this as socialization. However, in the Christian community getting together is beyond social - it's spiritual!
Membership in the association provides an opportunity to be part of the newsletter and email distribution. Many of the assocation members are also members of the Home School Legal Defense Association which looks out for homeschool interests at both the national and state government levels. Hence, through the association you can find other likeminded believers seeking to equip their children at home through Care Groups, Co-ops, Field Trips, Association events, etc.
We have been blessed to offer the homeschool community a full cap and gown commencement ceremony for our graduating seniors. We consider our commencement exercises to be a service of praise to God for what He has done in our children's lives and a service of honor to the students and their accomplishments by God's grace. Unless you are new to the area, you must be a member before September 30th of the school year in order to participate in the spring graduation.
