To Auto-Renew or Not...That is the Question

Our membership coordinators receive many inquiries from members confused about auto-renewal. Do you find yourself wondering about the difference between auto-renewal and non-auto-renewal? Both options are available to those paying for their memberships with automatic monthly or quarterly payments from a bank account or credit/debit card.

If you opt for non-auto-renewal, you'll receive a renewal notice at the end of your first year of membership that gives you the chance to continue your membership (by paying in full, paying for two years, or making monthly or quarterly payments). If you opt for auto-renewal, you will automatically receive a set of new membership cards at the end of your membership year, along with a letter stating that you chose auto-renewal at the beginning of your membership. Your financial account will continue to be debited on a monthly or quarterly basis, as originally indicated.

Because we save on printing and postage costs with auto-renewals, we are able to charge $1 less per month when you select this option.

Curriculum conundrums

By now you're probably aware that Home School Legal Defense Association has on staff two high school coordinators (Becky Cooke and Diane Kummer) who are available to answer your questions about homeschooling through the higher grades-from topics such as transcripts and preparing for the SAT to completing college admissions requirements.

However, during the winter and spring months, our coordinators are less busy and would be happy to speak with our members about the elementary and middle school grades as well. They can help answer your questions about curriculum, subjects to be covered in preparation for high school, or what to do with an 8-year-old who can't sit still for more than 20 minutes. Please remember that the personal advice provided by these experienced ladies cannot be guaranteed effective in your particular circumstances. However, they'll do their best to point you in the right direction.

You can contact our high school coordinators at 540-338-5600, by emailing, or by visiting
