Homeschool Friday programs on the first Friday of the month. Each month’s
program is from 10 - 11:30 am and includes hands-on activities while students
learn and explore different themes and historic sites with Historic Columbia.
Homeschool Friday programs are designed for students of elementary and middle
school age levels.

Homeschool Friday is open to families and homeschool groups of less than 10
students. For larger groups, we recommend arranging a separate visit to
explore that month's topic. Program participants should gather in the Gift
Shop at Robert Mills on the day of the program unless otherwise noted.

The cost is per student, with an accompanying adult free. Homeschool Fridays
are $5 for HC members, $6 for non-members and $8 for both members and
non-members at the door.

Reservations open on August 5. If you have questions, would like to be on our
mailing list, or if you would like to register for the entire year of
Homeschool Friday programs, please contact the Education Department at or 803.252.1770 x 26.
