You Can Build Your Own Homeschool Community
Calling All Neighborhood Homeschoolers
There are bound to be other homeschooling families right under your nose. Ask around your neighborhood or get involved with your local church, head to the skating rink during normal school hours, or research a local homeschool co-op.
Join a Local Field Trip Group
Field trips are great for educational purposes. They can also help create lasting friendships through Field Trip Groups and places that offer homeschool activities. Museums, dance studios, and community centers often hold classes or during-the-day activities for homeschooled students. Make sure to ask their staff for information or resources they have on homeschool groups!
Relate, Connect, Assemble
Many parents choose homeschooling because of student talents and demanding schedules. Whether you’re a tennis mom, a gymnast dad, or the parent of a motocross rider, there are sure to be other Parent Educators around you. You already relate to these families in more ways than you think. What better way to connect than while you’re in your shared world? Assemble your community via the passions and interests that drive you and your student.
In the 21st century, so many relationships start virtually. Your relationship with Bridgeway Academy is probably one of them. Facebook groups and blogger communities are a great way to initially connect with like-minded homeschooling parents. Follow Homeschool Convention websites and social media pages for events in your area.Join Our Community
