Welcome to the website of Schoolhouse Home Education Association, Scotland’s national home education support charity.
Schoolhouse is a well established and respected source of independent information for parents, carers and young people who are starting out on the home education path, families who may be thinking about educating their children outside the classroom, and those who just want to know more about how home education works.
We aim to provide reassurance that home-based education is not only a legal and successful alternative to schooling, but that is now widely practised in Scotland and that information and support are freely available from Schoolhouse.
