- AmericanSchool_Homeschool (American School and Homeschooling) - This group is for parents of any age children thinking about the high school years. You might be thinking of having them attend a correspondence school like "American School of Correspondence" and/or continuing to homeschool. This is the place to get information for those high school years. Our homeschooling style is classical eclectic, loosely following The Well Trained Mind (TWTM, WTM) but this group is open to all from unschoolers to school at home, and everything in between! This group is open to all parents who are helping educate their children. Please understand that their will be people here of nonreligious and religious backgrounds, please be respectful of all, anyone who can not be respectful will be banned. No flaming or spam.
If you have a child in 5th through 8th grade, feel free to join my other group Classical Logic Stage Secular Homeschoolers. It is open to anyone teaching those grades.

This is a group for homeschooling parents to freely discuss issues related to preparing high school students for successful transition to college. Posts can include but are not limited to preparing the child for high school course work, selecting books or curricula or programs, reviews of any particular curriculum and how it helped (or failed to help) your child, extracurricular activities including sports and music and driver's ed, identifying potential colleges, how particular colleges treat homeschoolers, college applications, preparing for and taking the PSAT/SAT/SAT II/PLAN/ACT and AP tests, preparing and submitting transcripts, financial aid -- and now we're being blessed by reports from homeschooled students who have made the transition to college.

- HSOK (HOMESCHOOLING OLDER KIDS (HS-OK)) - Welcome! Homeschooling Older Kids is a part of Eclectic Home Educators that is dedicated to homeschooling children ages 11 and up. We're inviting all homeschooling parents to join up with HSOK-Homeschooling Older Kids.
Many of us have gone through the phonics vs. site words, the socialization issues and now we are on to new territory! How do we prepare them for college? What is teen-angst? What do we do when they want to pierce their navel? eyebrows? any other part that we don't think metal should enter? Has your son or daughter decided to dye his/her hair blue? Then you're in the right place. We've either experienced it or are dreading getting ready to experience it.
We will share curriculum information ideas. We will support each other on good bad days. We will share different teaching methods. HSOK also offers weekly web sites pertaining to homeschooling the chance to post homeschool materials/curriculum you may have for sale.
If you have older children and would like to participate in gatherings for them, join us! Meet someone in your neighborhood. Start a support group
