Indiana Homeschool Law
Different from a "co-op" or "homeschool group", homeschool organizations like the ones below promote, defend and represent homeschooling families in more ways than one. Like the IFHS, they create a central meeting point for Indiana homeschooling families regardless of location and are critical in representing our homeschool community as a whole. Below are a few organizations that you should know about in the state of Indiana.
