Homeschool Friday

The SCCRRMM’s “Homeschool Fridays” are a FREE program offered on the second Friday of each month during the academic year. Sessions are at 10:00AM and 11:00AM (the same lesson is taught, both hours). The programs are geared toward students of all ages, and include lectures and activities.

Please note: from September through January, we are offering an additional lecture, a biographical sketch of a military hero (or, in one case, villain), focusing on character qualities. The biography lectures will be held on third Fridays, at 11:00 only.

Session Schedule:
