what is a homeschool group?
Whereas a homeschool co-op is based around education, a homeschool group is much more tight-knit and social-based. The goal of many homeschool groups is to have a close connection with local families. Many groups go on field trips, have events, and even gather at each other's houses.
Benefits of Joining a Homeschool Group:
homeschoolers can meet other students who are schooling the way they are
pre-scheduled group activities such as field trips, clubs, spelling bees, and P.E. bring variety to the homeschool week
parents will have opportunities to ask questions of other veteran homeschooling families
most groups have an online presence such as an email chain or Facebook group where you can easily search for information
