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.
This organization is a Christian support group open to anyone who is currently homeschooling grades Kindergarten and up. Our goal is to encourage you in your homeschooling endeavors by offering once-a-month meetings at which we plan activities for the upcoming month, disseminate information about opportunities in the community, and meet with other parents for encouragement and exchange of ideas and techniques.
Activities offered by our group include field trips and holiday parties. Membership in the group is required to participate in the activities; however, anyone is welcome to visit one of our monthly meetings.
