Foothills Accountability Association was formed in 1996 to provide 3rd Option Accountability under SC Statute 59-65-47.
We believe that we are accountable to God and each other, to fulfill our homeschooling responsibilities as required by law, and to represent the homeschooling community in an honorable, positive and appropriate manner, that uplifts and benefits all homeschoolers. ALL curriculums and methods of homeschooling are encouraged and welcome as long as schooling is performed in a reasonable fashion.
We are blessed to serve South Carolina homeschoolers living inOconee, Pickens, and Anderson counties.
Although SC Statute 59-65-47 requires that 3rd Option groups report ONLY grade and number of homeschooled students to the district, if your school wishes confirmation of your membership with Foothills, and you have no objection, have the Guidance Counselor Contact the Foothills Administrator by phone or email and Kim will be happy to confirm your membership as a COURTESY. ***(see details in FAQ page)
The Administrator's email is firstname.lastname@example.org
