We desire to raise our children to the glory of God, here in God's country- the Carolinas!

We are a diverse and inclusive organization of families working together as colleagues to bring a wealth of support and knowledge to our members. Both veteran and new homeschooling families freely share information about their homeschool journeys, answer questions and help sustain our common goal of educating our children at home. There will surely be an “educational style” that you can relate to, as we have them all. Our members reflect all of the homeschooling philosophies including classical, traditional, Charlotte Mason, a variety of curricula, cooperatives, eclectic, and unschooling.

GIFTSNC is a place where we can support each other as we work to meet the daily challenges of rearing, guiding and teaching all our children. A brief, family bio is required and will be requested on all pending memberships. This bio will also be used as an introduction to the group.

    FYI: We started as a North Caroina specific group and are still predominantly NC residents which means that we have some communication that is specific to NC or areas within NC. Since we are a large group, I encourage smaller groups of members to meet for parent meetings, field trips, etc. These small group communications are also encouraged on the larger GIFTSNC group. This allows for a continued small group feel allowing us to continue sharing and encouraging each other through this life journey!

    NC Homeschoolers (NCHomeschoolers) - Not much to add to the title... The NC Homeschoolers list is organized for the sole purpose of sharing thoughts, more or less, about homeschooling. (Gee, what are the chances?) We're open to talk of the three Rs, (or one R, one A and one W, but talk about W may get tense) testing, whether or not we should have to test, extra-curricular activities, what's on Dr Phil's show, un-schooling, scheduled classical studies, special needs related stuff, book reviews, editorial comments, where to recycle computers, funny stuff, green treatments for headlice, anything, really, can be discussed as long as it at least loosely relates to spending time with loved ones outside of the 4 walls that all smell the same.

    Well, fine, but if this is a homeschool loop, what about religion? What about it? I'm a Presbyterian. My way of celebrating holidays has nothing, really, to do with my choice to homeschool. Some list members have a different perspective. Tis just fine, that difference. Better than fine, actually. That's my way of saying if you are looking for a place where everyone dresses the same, votes the same, educates their offspring the same, or champions the same book of spirituality, you may want to pass on this list. Otherwise, WELCOME, and feel free to speak your mind! ~Jackie~
