We are: Megan Casey, group owner, and Grace Sanchez, friend and co-moderator. I arrange field trips for elementary, middle and high school aged homeschool students, and Grace organizes events and activities for pre-K through 1st grades.
In the summer of 2006, I decided that I wanted to attend more field trips with my own children, and quickly found that many of the most interesting trips were only open to groups. So, I started booking space, and planning field trips.
Shortly thereafter, I teamed up with Grace, and from there, our field trips have made homeschool lists as far as Delaware and West Virginia! We then decided that creating our own group might be helpful to include a larger geographic database as well as more homeschool activities. Regardless of where you live, feel free to join or post activities.
Click on the Calendar option to your left to get an overview of upcoming events.
Want to make sure that you are signed up for an event? Click on, "Database" to your left and view master participant lists for field trips. The total number next to each name includes adults and children. Max 10 databases: we add and delete databases as events occur.

Home school students attend small classes (no more than 15 students). We encourage students to choose subjects which complement and enhance their studies at home. The role of the teachers is to guide the students’ work and to provide additional background or resources, as needed, to enrich the discussion or project. A balanced blend of discussions, projects, and written exercises in and outside of class time help the students explore the subjects more deeply.
Students may socialize freely with their peers in between classes and during lunch breaks. Students also are encouraged to join in field trips and other extra-curricular activities. Parents also will find The Odyssey Center a place where they can socialize and network with other parents with similar educational goals and methods. Parents should plan to join their children in the Latin classes in order to be able to fully support their children’s studies at home. Parents are also welcome to attend other classes.

- SankofaHomeschoolCommunity (Sankofa Homeschool Community) - Sankofa is a community of homeschooling families of color who want to grow, learn, and build together, and who are dedicated to creating a rich, supportive homeschool village through a combination of social outlets, field trips, and the sharing of resources.
Sankofa has members in DC, Maryland and VA, and as far north as Baltimore. We are religiously diverse and our members use a variety of homeschooling methods.
Why join Sankofa? Homeschoolers of color need a consistent reference group. Many times our children take classes, meet children, only to never see them again. Often when the season changes our homeschool activities or schedule may change. Through regular participation with the Sankofa Community, children and homeschooling families can look forward to seeing and building relationships with one another, on a consistent basis, no matter their home school path.
Sankofa uses our Yahoo Group listserv as our on-line base of operation, but in most cases, the true power of Sankofa is found in person, in small groups, meeting in people’s homes or sharing resources on a variety of subjects.
There are many different types of homeschooling groups; some whose focus is solely academic, some who are divided by ages groups, while others are little more than e-mail lists that lack the strong bonds of a sustained community, where parents and children really get to know one another and build real friendships. Sankofa believes that we combine the best of both worlds for children of all ages. We hope that through participation in Sankofa, our families will build connections that will last a lifetime.
