You can homeschool. We can Help!

You can homeschool. We can Help!

Before we had a name, I had a vision.  My name is Andrea Hall and this vision was born the first year I started homeschooling my children in 2012.  We lived in an 1100 square foot home with 3 bedrooms and 1 bathroom but as a small family, it was perfect. Except for the fact that I didn’t have a dedicated space to homeschool unless I wanted to transform my entire home into a school room.  I resorted to the hallway and that was our school room.  I thought, wouldn’t it be nice if moms like me with limited space could go somewhere and homeschool when WE wanted to?  Thus the vision for the center for born.

Since then I started an informal group South Cobb Homeschoolers where we met at the South Cobb Regional library and did field trips together.  But in 2016 the vision came back and it was clear that it was bigger than the South Cobb Homeschoolers. It was EPIC!

I gathered together a strategic planning committee and created our vision “A World where home is the first school” and our mission “ to enrich, enhance, and empower home education in the community.”  We decided on home education because EPIC is not just for homeschoolers but for all families who believe as George Santayana that “A child educated only at school is an uneducated child”.

Now that we were clear on our vision and mission we became a 501c3 nonprofit organization.  Today we enrich by offering scholarships to our members, we enhance by organizing monthly field trips with STEM focus programs and we empower through parent webinars and workshops.

We still have the vision for the center and to offer bigger scholarships and more programs and we need your support to make this dream a reality.  Your donation allows us to offer scholarships, resources, field trips and more to support homeschooling families.  Our biggest goal is to have a resource center.  It's an EPIC vision but with your help, we can do it.  Thank you for your EPIC support!  You can learn more about EPIC Homeschool Network Inc. by visiting us at https://epichsn.com/.
