    Alabama Homeschool Support Groups (A - E)

    I have tried to include here only those groups that indicate they really are a support group and not just an e-mail list or other online group (Facebook group). Many are e-mail lists, but they also meet for park days, arrange field trips, schedule events, etc. That sounds like a support group to me!

    That said, there are also a few Alabama homeschool information websites included here. These "groups" do not sponsor field trips or workshops or any sort of get together. But they do provide valuable information to Alabama homeschoolers, so I am including them.

    I also have a listing of homeschool e-mail lists, message boards, Facebook groups and other online groups for Alabama homeschoolers. So if you don't find what you want here, please check out the Alabama e-lists page.

    If your group is not listed here, please contact Karen. I would love to add your group!
