BICC

Under the umbrella of BCHA, BICC (Bastrop Independent Christian Co-op) was formed nearly twenty years ago to provide an opportunity for our home-educated students to receive specialized instruction in a variety of courses.  We are not a school, but rather something much richer; we are a cooperative learning center. It is by team effort we succeed.

COMPLYING WITH TEXAS’ HOMESCHOOL LAW

In Texas, homeschools are considered  to be private schools. To legally homeschool, you will need to follow these  requirements:

1. TEACH THE REQUIRED SUBJECTS.

The  required subjects are: math,  reading,  spelling and grammar, and a course in good citizenship. Although   science and history are not required by state law, any college your  student  applies to will require them for admittance, so you’ll want to  make sure to teach  those too.

2. USE A WRITTEN CURRICULUM.

The  private school law as interpreted by the Texas Supreme Court  requires that you  use some form of written curriculum (online programs  meet this requirement) and  that you operate your homeschool in a “bona  fide” manner.
