Who owns The Homeschool Store?
The owner Randy Swirsky and his wife Alexie are the proud parents of eight homeschooled children! They started homeschooling in 1990 and as of Spring 2011 the tally is: One seminary graduate, one accounting graduate, one civil engineering graduate, one bible college graduate, two college students, and two still in high school, all of which were and are currently being homeschooled through 12th grade.
In 1996 Randy opened the doors to The Homeschool Store and business has been booming ever since. Some of the kids still work at the store. Dedicated to providing quality advice and help to his customers, Randy employs several experienced Homeschool moms as well as high school and college students.
