Montana Statewide Homeschool Groups
Statewide homeschool groups can help you find different resources that are available throughout the state. These groups can help locate local homeschool groups, co-op homeschool groups, and virtual homeschool groups in Montana.
“The Montana Coalition of Home Educators came together in 1988 as a cooperative effort of many individuals, organizations, and support groups in the state. The goal was to bring homeschoolers together to protect Montana’s home school freedom, while maintaining the independence and autonomy of the individual families and the local home school organizations. To accomplish this goal, a network of these groups, individuals and organizations was formed. An executive committee was selected to serve as a central clearinghouse for information, to set up and maintain a communication network, to watch for political/legal threats to Montana families’ freedom, and to inform homeschoolers and suggest possible actions to meet those threats.”
