Encompass Homeschool is led by Christie Cochran, a mom and wife from the Upstate of SC. We started homeschooling  9 years ago and now have middle and high school age children. We enjoy the flexibility homeschooling has provided our family, from being able to live and work overseas in countries such as Croatia, Spain, and Mexico, as well as being able to select from a wide range of curriculums, knowing that our children learn in different ways and have different interests. We have used curriculums from many different sources, including secular, Christian, literature based, workbook style, online, etc...Next year we are designing our own curriculum in order to complete year long study of World War 2 for our history loving son. 

 I started a local homeschool playgroup several years ago when we couldn't find a local one that we could join. My mission was to welcome a group of diverse families that enjoyed sharing and learning from each other, while teaching the basic rules of soccer and other field sports to a coed, mixed age group of children.  Knowing that I personally learn more when surrounded by those of different beliefs, I chose to make Encompass Homeschool a group where everyone is accepted, appreciated, and respected.
