HomeSchool Co-op

Firm Foundations Homeschool Co-op (FFHC) was created to be a small group/connect group for our local homeschool community in Elgin, Camden, Lugoff and Northeast Columbia.  Parenting is hard. Homeschool can be too! No one should have to do it alone!


We offer a eclectic selection of classes, some academic, others interest based. Offerings change each session and are based on the number of participating parents willing to teach.

FFHC is a ministry of International Praise Church of God in Elgin and as such all classes will line up with basic Christian principals were applicable.  Some classes may be offered “for credit” but no guarantees are made your specific association will accept the work for credit.  We will offer field trip opportunities and other fun events through out the year.

We strive to be a place where families can gather and build friendships, find support and walk this homeschool journey together. Join us for our first session this fall!

We will hold a fall fundraiser and a spring fundraiser. A list of expenditures can be requested at any time, and fulfillment must take place within 5 business days.
