Meet #HSTA Partner: HSLDA

Homeschool Legal Defense Association

HSLDA is a nonprofit ministry to defend and advance the constitutional right of parents to direct the education of their children and to protect family freedoms.
HSLDA’s primary goal is to bring together a large number of homeschooling families so that each can have a low-cost method of obtaining quality legal defense. HSLDA gives tens of thousands of families the freedom to homeschool without having to face legal threats alone. Through many families sticking together, we have been able to keep the cost of a year’s membership close to the rate that a family would have to pay for an hour of an attorney’s time almost anywhere else.

What homeschooling parents are saying about HSLDA:

“I had no idea how successful homeschooling was going to be for our family when we started. We had hoped that it would work out and that God would bless it. God’s blessings have been a lot bigger and better than I could have ever imagined.”

“My wife and I are so grateful for having been able to homeschool our children, and I love being part of the effort to preserve that freedom for the next generation.”
After a family joins HSLDA, there are no further charges of any kind for defending them in court. HSLDA pays in full all attorney fees, expert witness costs, travel expenses, and all other court costs permissible by state law for us to pay.

The vast majority of contacts member families face are successfully resolved through our early intervention without any court action. Many times, our team of HSLDA attorneys simply call or write letters on behalf of members contacted by local officials. For those who wind up in court, HSLDA provides full representation at every stage of legal proceedings.

Member families receive not merely numerous valuable, tangible benefits, but also the invaluable and intangible blessing of defending liberty—for their own children and for future generations.

Peace of mind. Protection. 24/7.


HSLDA’s Mission:


“To preserve and advance the fundamental, God-given, constitutional right of parents and others legally responsible for their children to direct their education. In so doing, we rely on two fundamental freedoms—parental rights and religious freedom. We advocate for these freedoms in the courtrooms, before government officials, and in the public arena. Additionally, we assist other educational organizations in similar activities, where possible and appropriate.
