  • 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.
