Welcome! Homeschooling is an exciting journey, and we will be with you every step of the way. These resources will help you navigate the state requirements and access local support groups.
The link below may help you with legal questions about homeschooling in your state.
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 between homeschooling families, this list does not constitute affiliation between Calvert Education and the groups represented below.
ACE is a nondirected homeschool support group located in Colorado, with most members living in the south and east parts of metro Denver, including Aurora, DTC, Green Valley Ranch, and surounding areas.
The primary focus of this group is as a social and educational outlet for parents and children. We plan weekly get-togethers and field trips.
CHEC is a nonprofit Christian organization dedicated to providing information, resources, and leadership to all families involved in home-centered education. We believe that parents—committing time and resources to provide their children with an academically excellent education, grounded in proper values—have the potential to affect the very course of our nation as their children grow up to become competent Christian leaders in the years to come. CHEC is committed to the advancement of home education and consider it part of our mission to help ease the burden of this responsibility for all families across Colorado involved in home-centered education.
Common Ground Homeschoolers is an inclusive group of families seeking educational alternatives for our children.

We offer park days, field trips, monthly teachers’ nights out, co-ops, opportunities for presentations, and other activities.

Metro North East Homeschoolers is a group comprised of a variety of families with many learning styles. Our families have children ranging in age from infant through high school. Our views on education are as varied as the ages of our children; from unschoolers to those using home-based charter schools. Our goal is to provide a safe, friendly environment for our children to socialize and develop friendships. Since there is no group “leader,” everyone is welcome, and encouraged, to suggest activities and provide input into group direction.
Summit County Homeschoolers is an eclectic and inclusive association of families who homeschool in Summit County and the surrounding counties (Lake, Park, and Grand). Members are mainly from the Breckenridge, Frisco, Dillon, and Silverthorne areas.
