HINTS (Home Instructors Need Team Support, Inc.) is a homeschool group that serves the geographical area of south Charlotte and has been in existence since 1985.

VISION STATEMENT: HINTS exists to support parents as they provide for the day-to-day needs of their students and homeschool.

Benefits to our members as well as to the greater homeschooling community and Annual Events include:

Annual Standardized Testing - For many years HINTS has offered Annual Testing (Group and Individual) to its members and, in recent years, to any local homeschoolers. Due to circumstances beyond our control, we are no longer able to offer this service. To find out more about the requirements and resources click here.

While much of the efforts of our support group involves supporting parents of homeschooled children, each year many activities are organized by our members to meet the needs of our students as well.  Activities vary each year based on what our members see as needs.

HINTS provides communication for only our members via:

  • group emails
  • a yahoogroup
  • this website which includes monthly newsletters and a calendar of events

Membership is open to any homeschooling family, though most of HINTS' members are Christians. In addition, to join HINTS a family must live in the vicinity of south Charlotte (NC) or surrounding area and be able to offer at least two services to the group annually.

HINTS is governed by a Board of Directors who, according to our By-Laws, must all be professing Christians.  The HINTS Board believes that parents have a constitutional right and a God-given responsibility to provide the best possible education for each of their children. It is also the HINTS Board's belief that, for parents who have been called to home education, this responsibility is made easier with the support of other homeschooling parents.

HINTS is a member of CHEA (Charlotte Home Educators Association) and supports NCHE (North Carolinians for Home Education) in its endeavors.
