Texas Homeschool Support Groups

support-group-texasAs a new homeschooler, how will you know whether you should join a homeschool support group or homeschool co-op?  Connecting with other homeschoolers is extremely important, especially when you are new to the journey.  You may be looking for ways to get advice, share ideas, or simply interact. Homeschoolers can be very supportive, but sometimes you need to look a little bit to find people who want to connect in those ways.  Continue reading to find out about homeschool support groups in Texas, including state, regional, and local homeschool groups, co-op homeschooling groups, and virtual homeschool groups.

Texas Statewide Homeschool Groups   

The benefit of statewide homeschool groups is that they have a broader view of homeschooling in Texas.  They can help you to locate local homeschool groups, homeschool co-ops, and virtual homeschool platforms.  They can also point you to homeschool resources across the state. Here is a list to get you started:

Homeschooling High School in Texas Forum

This Facebook group is “a place to ask questions, answer questions, share ideas, offer encouragement, and generally discuss homeschooling high school in the great state of Texas!”

MHOT is where minority home educators will be enlightened, encouraged, promoted and motivated as they nurture and train their children in the way of the Lord and in the spirit of excellence.”

Texas Advocates for Freedom in Education (TAFFIE)

“The TAFFIE mailing list is for anyone interested in topics related to homeschooling 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.” 

Texas Unschoolers

“At Texas Unschoolers our mission is to educate and support those families who are exploring an alternative approach to life and learning—and we have found that learning is not separate from life, but rather is deeply integrated into all that we do. We have seen many kids (including our own) do very well outside the traditional public school model when they are allowed the time and resources to discover where their passions lie.”

We also conduct special meetings, lead regional activities, co-host leadership seminars and retreats, provide consultations, and offer helpful online information.”
