Announcing Spring 2015 Homeschool Days at UHM!
Thank you to all of the families who participated in our Fall 2014 Homeschool Days. We had so much fun learning and exploring with you.
This spring we have great new programs to offer our homeschool families and friends. Each home school day includes lectures in museum galleries, hands-on activities in our classrooms, and admission to the museum. Programs are all multidisciplinary and support South Carolina state standards for social studies.
