Texas Homeschool Community Calendar
The THSC Event Calendar is a free service to homeschoolers in Texas. We hope you like it. It is designed to help homeschooling families, friends, and support groups take advantage of educational opportunities of interest to you.
For event sponsors: Your event venue must be in Texas and have a specific appeal to homeschoolers. All submissions are moderated by THSC. If you don’t see your event posted three business days after submission, please contact the Moderator at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your submissions and interest in supporting Texas home schoolers.

Note: Please do not list events that run for extended periods. Events running for more than 3 – 5 days (depending on event), will be edited or will not be published. If you would like to promote a long-running event, such as a class or a camp, please list the opening and closing dates for registration or enrollment separately. The recommendation for actual class dates is that they should be listed in the event description, not in the date field.
