In order to support Texas home schooling families, the THSC Association continues to develop membership benefits including events, consulting, legal help, and offers and discounts on products and services specific to you. Please check out the benefits you can receive today:

Home School Legal Consultation & Advocacy

THSC advocates for its members with government officials, and other entities discriminating against them on the basis of homeschooling. THSC provides members with an after-hours number to call in the case of an emergency Child Protective Services (CPS) situation. Should CPS open an investigation on a current THSC member, THSC will provide legal assistance through the investigation phase of the CPS case. We apologize, but pre-existing issues are not covered by a THSC membership.

Instant Customized Diplomas

THSC is proud to offer four distinctive and professional quality high school diploma templates to our members; so you can capture this time of celebration and remembrance with a professional certificate that will serve your sons or daughters well as they continue their academic training or their chosen field of endeavor.

Grade School Report Card Template

A report card for the elementary and middle school years can be helpful for your own record keeping as well as for receiving discounts from businesses for good grades.

THSC provides this template as a Word document that allows you to fill in subjects, grades, skill assessments, community service, and comments for each student.

Term Average Template

Do you grade your students’ work and track it on our report card or transcript templates? THSC heard from families asking for a simple system to track grades, and we responded by developing the term average template.

This customizable template has many features, including:

  • Multiple term options
  • Dozens of subject options—or add your own
  • Attendance records
  • Track averages by subject
  • Track performance for multiple learning tools in the same subject

High School Transcript Templates

These formulated grade transcript templates will make it easy to track your student’s subjects, grades and credits. A transcript is the official record of subjects, grades and credits that your students complete during their ninth through twelfth grade years.

Transcript templates are available in two formats. There is a grade level format for ninth through twelfth grade. There is also a version sorted by subject. This is particularly helpful for students that follow a non-traditional format (starting coursework earlier or completing coursework at a faster or slower pace than a typical four-year high school).

FREE Download of THSC’s Lone Star Study – Updated in 2016

One of the Texas home school requirements is to teach your child(ren) five basic subjects. Good Citizenship is one of those subjects. THSC provides our members with the Lone Star Study, a Good Citizenship curriculum that will help you accomplish the state’s home school requirements.

FREE Download of THSC’s Handbook for Texas Home Schoolers

 

Does the school district have to approve your curriculum? Since your children do not attend public school, do you get a break on your property taxes? What do you do if CPS comes to your door? Find answers to these questions and many more in the Handbook for Texas Home Schoolers.
