Alabama Homeschool Support Groups

Homeschool support groups in your state are an excellent way to gain more assistance and guidance in your homeschooling endeavors. A regional support group fosters a wonderful sense of community among homeschooling families and allows for more opportunities to exchange ideas, plan group outings, and share in the overall experience of homeschooling! While Calvert supports the development of community among homeschooling families, this list does not constitute affiliation between Calvert Education and the groups represented below.

CHRISTIAN HOME EDUCATION FELLOWSHIP OF ALABAMA (CHEF)

CHEF of Alabama was founded in 1988 to serve all home educators in Alabama by providing information, services, and resources from a Christian perspective to anyone who needs help in the area of homeschooling. While we do not limit our services to Christians, our approach is decidedly from the Christian perspective. Our desire is to build strong families by encouraging the home education of our children using tried-and-true biblical principles.

HOMESCHOOLED KIDS & CO. (HK&C)

Homeschooled Kids & Co. is a local support group for families predominately from Escambia counties Alabama and Florida. Our group was formed in the 1990s when local Christian families who were homeschooling decided to come together for support and fellowship. In 2000 the group was officially named Homeschooled Kids & Co.

Families pay a yearly membership fee that entitles their children to participate in HK&C activities. These activities consist of moms’ meetings, field trips, extracurricular group classes, organized P.E., parties, and service projects.

HK&C is a volunteer organization coordinated by a voluntary leadership team.
