Our Mission:

We are a community of students and families who desire to glorify God by uplifting, encouraging, equipping and supporting home educating families to disciple young men and women of character, influencing the world for Jesus Christ.

Last year, we served 382 homeschooling students in our community through co-op classes and events. In addition, we reached over 950 families with homeschooling resources, support, and training sessions to help them in their homeschooling.

The past year has presented unique challenges and a 600% growth in homeschooling across the country. Our community and financial partners enabled us to meet this challenge and help many first-time homeschooling families to educate their children at home. Their donations greatly impacted our community and directly supported parents and families during this difficult time. On behalf of these local families, THANK YOU for your support!

We recommend that homeschooling families join HSLDA and Christian Home Educators of Ohio (CHEO). Even if you never experience legal trouble yourself, your membership will help enable other homeschooling families to get the legal help they need and will help defend our right to homeschool here in Ohio. Membership in HSLDA also gives you personal access to the legal staff; HSLDA's experienced high school, special needs, and toddlers to tweens consultants; and discounts through HSLDA's PerX program. (For more information about HSLDA's many benefits, see www.hslda.org.)
