A Moral Compass - Teaching Your Children Godly Character

If you know a homeschooling resource that is under one of the following categories, please submit the resource so that other homeschoolers can find it! (Plus you'll get a super awesome gift for submit a resource).

  • Academic enrichment (academic classes, tutoring, testing, etc.)

  • Arts opportunities (art, music, theater, etc)

  • Convention/Conference

  • Christian Book Store

  • Job or Volunteer Opportunity for Homeschool Students

  • Local Homeschool Co-op

  • Local Homeschool Group

  • Local Christian Group

  • Online Homeschool Group (for a Specific Locale)

  • Other Homeschooling Event

  • Outdoors (clubs, groups, events, etc)

  • Resource

  • Sports

  • State Organization


Some of the major reasons for joining a co-op or homeschool group near you include:

  • Academic advice, support, diversity or expertise in teaching

  • Socialization opportunities with same-age peers

  • Exposure to curricula, resources, and ideas from other homeschoolers

  • Structure and direction for the homeschool

  • Extra-curricular activity options

  • Emotional support from other homeschoolers

  • Social networking

  • “Traditional” schooling benefits such as experiencing a classroom setting, diplomas, dances such as prom, and graduation ceremonies


In addition to the groups and state resources listed in our local homeschool database (find them by clicking your state below and use the submenu to navigate to specific types of groups/activities), there are many other ways to find community as a homeschooler.


Maybe the type of community you are looking for doesn’t exist in your area and you are thinking about starting your own co-op—once you have all of the necessary requirements, submit your local homeschooling group to our database so people near you can find your new co-op or homeschooling group!


Whether you are an introvert or extrovert, whether you live in a city or rural area, whether your kids are just hitting school age or about to graduate, there is homeschooling encouragement and support to be found in community.
