    The goal is to grow into a group to get discounts for field trips, a source for local homeschooler activities - volunteer opportunities, and "unschooler events" - talent days, geography bees, play days, etc.

    This is a group for people who are raising their children to be free thinkers by giving them a broad based liberal education. We respect each others right to raise our children as we see fit. We value each others path and agree to disagree in a respectful manner. We do not bash here or get personal. If you will be offended by passionate liberal discussions, PLEASE this is not the site for you.

    DFWSaFE (DFW School Free Education Zone) - The DFW School-Free Education Zone is a progressive support group for parents/guardians of unschoolers. We are pretty relaxed about pretty much everything. We are a secular (non-religious-affiliated) group, so we have no "statement of faith" or biblical mandates to follow. We don't care if you are Catholic, Atheist, Hindu, or Pagan. (Religious fundamentalists/zealots/evangelists need not apply.)

    As unschoolers, we believe that child-led learning is preferable to curriculum use. Some of our members are veeeery relaxed "eclectic" home-learners or recently-out-of-school, novice home-learners who are open-minded and tend to lean/morph towards unschooling as they learn more about it. We are not a conservative school-at-home group, and find little reason to discuss "how to make Johnny finish his English paper," but can get intense about respecting children and gentle parenting...and about learning! What we do discuss are politics & justice, health & organic living, saving the environment, and anything else that affects our children and the world we'll leave them.

    What we also see as paramount is having fun and playing together! Basically, we like our kids, like each other's kids and enjoy spending time together. We have regular park days, seasonal parties, field trips, "meet & greets," volunteer opportunities, and other events.

    We are based in Flower Mound, in the center of the Dallas/Ft. Worth/Denton triangle, and have members from all over the metroplex and surrounding areas.

We are not a conservative school-at-home group and have little interest in talking about how to make Johnny finish his English paper; we seek to preserve or regain the natural joy and love of learning that is inherent in all children.

    We are not a religious-oriented group, so we have no "statement of faith." No one cares if you are Catholic or Hindu, Athiest or Pagan. We have no board of directors, no dues, no business meetings, and no rules.

    We have members of varied spiritual beliefs, lifestyles, and ethnic origins, and we celebrate and take joy in learning from eachother's differences.

    We are based in the center of the Dallas/Ft. Worth/Denton triangle, and serve as a central meeting point for progressive-minded families of teens throughout the area. We network, and share information on anything of interest for our teens, including learning resources and opportunities, volunteersim, job and college prep for unschoolers, and, of course, social activities and FUN.

    Homeschoolers_in_Pearland (Homeschoolers in Pearland) - This group is open to ALL homeschoolers in Pearland and surrounding areas. Our goal is to establish some regular park days for the purpose of getting to know each other. As time goes on it is our hope that more regularly scheduled activities will be established and cooperative experiences will develop. For now, let's just get together a couple times a month to play and to visit.

    There is not a great "masterplan" just a desire to get something going in Pearland.

    **If you've been driving all over the greater Houston area to take your children to different activities, but all along wished for something closer to home

    **If you've been paying top dollar for classes, many of which could have been done just as well, if not better, as a cooperative effort with other homeschoolers, but would prefer an inclusive situation, as opposed to those that require 'statements of faith'

    **If you are tired of putting a strain on two very valuable resources -- time and money -- because of the items mentioned in the first two bullets then join this yahoogroup and come to park day. Let's see what develops.

    There are a great many homeschoolers in and near Pearland and there is no obvious reason that we shouldn't be able to come together to plan some wonderful learning opportunities and experiences for our children. It just has to begin.

    Homeschooling is a fantastic adventure! Share your journey with other homeschoolers in the Houston area.

    Whether you are a new homeschooler looking for information or are a longtime veteran, we invite you to freely share your experience, resources, support group information, field trips, educational opportunities, links, ideas, questions, and concerns or connect with other homeschoolers in your area.

    I-HOST is an inclusive online community, which means everyone is welcome! We all have something to contribute and share our knowledge of homeschooling and its related topics in a respectful, supportive manner. Homeschooling is all about finding the answers that best suit your unique situation, so not everything will be for everyone. We all want the very best for our children and have come to the common conclusion that no one can provide that better than their parents and there are no “one-size-fits-all” solutions.

    We encourage each other in our differences. Our spiritual beliefs, political views, as well as our educational approaches are widely varied. However, this is NOT the place for discussions related to religion and politics. Our differences are celebrated and appreciated; flaming or unkind words will simply not be tolerated within this community.

    RAMCHE (Randolph Area Military Christian Home Ed) - Welcome to the e-group home of the Randolph Area Military Christian Home Educators (RAMCHE)! This e-group is for Christian military homeschool families living on or near Randolph Air Force Base, just northeast of San Antonio, TX. Here you can find details about RAMCHE activities, and resources to help you in your homeschooling endeavors.

    Members of this yahoo group should read and agree to the guidelines of the group, including Statement of Faith and Guidelines for Conduct. Members of this yahoo group will then have access to the current roster, contact information for activity coordinators, the updated calendar of events, and the group email postings for discussion and questions. RAMCHE offers weekly park/playdays at rotating parks and play areas around (and within) Randolph AFB. These weekly playdays are the central activity for our group, allowing our children to form friendships with other military, homeschooled children. Moms find this visiting time especially valuable for forming friendships with other Moms, as well as seeking/providing homeschooling support through questions about curriculum, methods, and shared ideas! RAMCHE also offers monthly Family Dinners Out, and a well-deserved occasional Mom’s Night Out! We are hoping to add age-specific preschool and older kids' activities this year. It is our goal for members to provide each other with encouragement and activities to support them as homeschoolers, as we share the common background of military homeschooling. We have active duty, reserve, and IRR members and their homeschooling families.

    RelaxedHomeschoolers - Relaxed Homeschoolers is a Homeschool Support Group that meets in the San Antonio, Texas area.

    What does a Relaxed Homeschooler in San Antonio look like? Two boys were playing basketball and later were deeply involved in a Yu-Gi-Oh duel. Several of the parents were discussing a parenting issue around a table. One little boy was making rockets and inviting others to help him. Another was building a wooden table while an adult helped as asked. Several girls were making sand castles and another was digging a giant hole while a boy ran back and forth to the creek to fill the hole with water. Eventually, the kids found the mud and soon the mud fight was on. Kids were covered from head to foot. Rather than getting scolded, the kids got their pictures taken.

    As parents we feel that our role is to be facilitators of learning, not disseminators of knowledge or enforcers that make sure that lessons are completed. We espouse unschooling and live as though there is no such thing as school, SAT's or curriculum. We believe that learning is best achieved by living life itself and letting our children live life right beside us following their passions.

    We are pretty relaxed about pretty much everything. We are not a religious-oriented group so we have no "statement of faith" or Biblical mandates to follow. Many of our members are religious but "What church do you go to?" isn’t a common question. No one cares if you are Catholic or Hindu, Atheist or Pagan. We find little reason to discuss curriculum or "how to make Johnny finish his English paper" but can get intense about respecting children and gentle parenting.

    What we do see as paramount is having fun and playing together. Basically, we like our kids, like each other’s kids and enjoy spending time together. We get together at a park each week on Tuesdays (northeast side).

    SanGabrielHomeschoolers - An inclusive homeschool support group for Georgetown, Round Rock, Leander (Texas) and surrounding areas. We welcome diversity! We have come together in the spirit of raising our children in a caring, respectful environment. Our group is named for the San Gabriel Rivers, which flow through our area.


    We do not currently have any activities set up for preschoolers.

    If you have made the commitment to homeschool your school aged children, please join this list so that you can communicate with other homeschoolers in the area, and stay informed of upcoming activities so that your family can participate. You may select the "No email" option and read your emails at the YahooGroups website if you prefer not to receive the emails in your inbox. An introduction from you is required to join.

    The mission of the San Gabriel Homeschoolers is to be a source of support, provide homeschooling information, socialization, and educational opportunities in a non-judgmental environment. Our goal is to be a positive, homeschooling light in words and deeds, recognizing that we will be viewed by others by what we will or will not do/say. Suggestions are helpful, but those who are negative, disrespectful, or try to tear down other's homeschooling efforts will be removed from the list in order to maintain our supportive and positive atmosphere.

Religious educational information and opportunities of any kind may be shared with the group in a non-judgmental and caring manner from time to time.

    SCCHE (Sugar Creek Christian Home Educators) - Sugar Creek Christian Home Educators is a cooperative of Christian families committed to supporting and encouraging one another to teach our children at home.

    SCCHE serves the southwest Houston, Texas area. Although our members primarily reside in Houston, Missouri City, Richmond and Sugar Land, many members live in neighboring communities.

    First, Sugar Creek Christian Home Educators is Christian. All that we do is built upon the foundation of the Lordship of Jesus Christ over heaven and earth. There is but one God, and he has been revealed in his written Word (the Bible), and in the living Word (Jesus Christ). God is central, not man; God’s glory is the purpose of history, not man’s glory. All people have rebelled against the God of heaven, are therefore guilty of cosmic treason, and deserve eternal punishment. Jesus Christ, his life of perfect obedience (righteousness), his substitutionary death on the cross, and his resurrection to new life, are necessary for the hope of any man to stand before the God of heaven on the day of judgment, and our only hope of eternity with God. These tenets of faith define our unity as believers under the auspices of SCCHE.

    Second, SCCHE is about Homeschooling. That is our purpose. We come together as families committed to the education of our children through homeschooling endeavors, and all that we do as an organization focuses upon that end. We limit our activities and involvements to fit this purpose.

    Third, SCCHE is a Cooperative. That means that we associate together in order to jointly serve so that we might reap the benefits of enhancing the education of our children. We do not expect a few to serve while others reap the benefits. All are expected to give of themselves, their gifting and talents, in order to share the effort of making all that we do as SCCHE successful.

    TAFFIE (Texas Advocates for Freedom in Education) - The TAFFIE mailing list is for anyone interested in topics related to home schooling in Texas. While many of the topics are specific to Texas, there is also discussion related to homeschooling in general. We are now over a decade old, making us the oldest Texas homeschooling list.

    The requirement to be on the mailing list is to live in Texas or to be an honorary Texan. If you are not sure if you live in Texas, go outside and greet the first person you see with a loud, cheerful 'Howdy pardner'. If they respond in a positive way, you may be in Texas. If they do not respond, you may be in New York City.

    Regardless of where you live, you qualify as an honorary Texan by saying ...'Howdy pardner '. If you start your first e-mail to taffie with a 'Howdy pardner', you will become an honorary Texan (you can still go out and greet people with a loud, cheerful 'Howdy pardner' once you send the e-mail.)

    Texas Home Educators Freedom Alliance - thefa - THEFA Mission Statement: We, the Texas Home Educators Freedom Alliance (THEFA), are parents practicing liberty in rearing and educating our children in accordance with our personal, private family values and goals.

    THEFA seeks to facilitate the furtherance of privately funded education and child rearing by the following:

    • Practicing Liberty in Learning for ourselves and our families.
    • Facilitating private resource networks for both academic and extracurricular resources.
    • Sharing intellectual resources to assist one another in exercising our ability to live and Learn in Liberty.
    • Welcoming free and open association with like-minded others.
