Homeschooling is a uniquely state-oriented activity. Legal requirements for homeschooling are set by the state, and as a result the opportunities and services available may vary widely between states. Finding a community of like-minded homeschoolers in your area can be the difference between feeling isolated and drained and feeling empowered and encouraged. Whether that community comes in the form of co-ops, extra-curricular-based activity homeschool groups, or state-based associations with online groups, the ability to ask questions and share experiences makes homeschooling feel less lonely.

 

Using the list of states below, you can choose your state and find listings for state and local homeschool groups near you, homeschool field trip destinations, local classes & homeschool co-ops, arts & sports opportunities, homeschool event listings, and more.
