If you are a homeschool family with one of the associations that seem to have closed or is unresponsive... PACESC is here to make sure you have coverage. You may enroll with us. Contact us by phone or email if you have any questions. While we are not here to undercut or undermine other associations, we are here to serve the homeschool community. If you need PACESC, we are here for you.

SC Homeschool Law requires that a parent or legal guardian teaching their child must have at least a High School Diploma or GED. To protect PACESC's accountability association and every member that is depending on us... The Parent/Teacher Educational Compliance Form (formerly the "Notary Form") must be on file for every member family.  This paperwork has always been required and the multiple requests which include printing, postage, and administration time and are costing the association money.  Therefore....

  • No reenrollment will be processed for a family until this form is on file in our office. Go to online form now... click here
  • No transcript and/or diploma will be generated for a child until this form is on file in our office.
  • If you need this form:

    • OR You may fill out the online form. Please go to the side menu and click "Parent/Teacher Documents" or click here.

Are you using your computer to keep valuable records for your homeschool?  Are your children using the computer to do their lessons?  Can you afford to lose those records or your child's hard work?

Every year, 43% of computer users lose irreplaceable emails, photos, documents and files.

Now you can use the same same safe, secure system I use!  Have you system automatically backup without you even thinking about it and then restore it with just a few clicks of the mouse when you need to.

I have had families lose their lesson plans, grades, and children's school work and have no way to recover the information!  DON'T LET THIS HAPPEN TO YOU.

OK... NOW IT HAS HAPPENED TO ME!! ...  AND CARBONITE WORKED JUST AS PROMISED TO TOTALLY RESTORE ALL OF MY VALUABLE FILES AND GET ME BACK UP AND RUNNING WITH JUST A FEW KEYBOARD STRIKES AND CLICKS OF THE MOUSE ON MY NEW COMPUTER.  THAT'S RIGHT!  I HAD MY COMPUTER COMPLETELY CRASH.  I HAD TO GET A NEW REPLACEMENT COMPUTER AND BE UP AND RUNNING QUICK SO AS NOT TO LET ANY OF MY MEMBERS DOWN.  CARBONITE RESTORED ALL OF MY FILES AND I DID NOT LOSE OR COMPROMISE ANY MEMBER INFORMATION OR FILES. 

I CAN NOT SAY HOW INVALUABLE THIS SERVICE IS TO ME AND I WILL NOT OWN ANOTHER COMPUTER THAT IS NOT BACKED UP AUTOMATICALLY WITH CARBONITE.  THE AUTOMATIC, ONLINE, BACKUP SYSTEM.  KEEP YOUR FILES, DOCUMENTS, EMAILS, AND PICTURES SECURE IN CASE OF A COMPUTER VIRUS OR CRASH. DON'T LET YOUR CHILD'S SCHOOL WORK AND RECORDS BE LOST!
