Grown from years of grassroots advocacy efforts, MDHSA is a loosely knit group of volunteers who hope to
bring together Maryland homeschool families so that we may stand together and speak with a powerful and united voice on
issues relating to homeschooling and protecting a family's right to choice the best education for their children.
MDHSA seeks to understand the unique needs of Maryland homeschool families. Unschoolers - school at
home - online virtual schoolers - eclectic curriculum users. Christian - Jewish - Muslim - Atheist - and others. From
Western Maryland to the Eastern Shore. We come from varied and diverse backgrounds, but we share one powerful commonality: Our love for our children and our desire to protect homeschooling rights.
