Secular Homeschool Groups and Co-ops

Non-religious homeschool groups for your secular homeschool.

By: Andrea Dillon 

It can be difficult to find your place in homeschooling. There are so many different ways to homeschool and many different groups local and online to help you with your homeschooling journey. It can be even harder when you are looking for secular homeschool groups or non-religious homeschool group options. Luckily secular homeschooling is becoming more popular and, in turn, more non-religious and secular homeschool support groups are being formed each day. Find online and in-person groups below to help you and your secular homeschoolers! 

*Note* While some groups claim to be secular and inclusive you will find that those terms mean different things to different groups. Please read the rules and descriptions of these groups before joining.

Do you know of a secular homeschool group that we don’t have one the list? Leave a comment below or email me to get it added!


Online Secular Homeschool Groups 

While a lot of homeschool groups are location-based there are many times where you need to find a group of like-minded individuals to chat with. General online support groups can provide that! 

We have our own secular homeschool group on Facebook to help you connect with others in the Secular Homeschool Community! Click the image below to go now. 

 

Atheist Homeschoolers

“We hope for this to be a place members can find/share secular curriculum, websites, groups, and reading materials to supplement your child’s education. If you have expertise in education or a particular area of interest (Science, History, Philosophy, Anthropology, Maker Movement, Sociology, etc…) please share! We want an active group – if every member would post just one item to ‘move the bar’ educationally every month, it would make a huge difference!”

 

Black Secular Homeschoolers

“This group was created to provide a supportive, educational, resourceful, and non-religious environment for parents of Black/Biracial children who are homeschooled. Although all parents may not be of African descent, if their children are biracial (half-Black), they are also welcome to join this group!”

 

Charlotte Mason Secular Homeschoolers

Secular & Decolonizing Homeschooling Resources and Connections

“The mission of this group is to provide a place to share educational resources and help you along in your home school journey. This group is staunchly anti-racist and anti-bigotry and pro-science. Politics, systematic racism, inclusive/accurate/decolonized history, LGBTQ+ topics, Pro-science, Will all be openly discussed, as those things are essential parts of a well-rounded education.”

 

Secular, Eclectic, Academic (SEA) Homeschoolers

“The group is intended as a positive force, and only those people who want to have a constructive discussion should join. The group is open to people of any faith or lack thereof. We only discuss secular academics in this group. That does not mean people cannot discuss religion within education, but it has to be from the perspective of academics, and all resources discussed will be strictly secular.” 

They also have other subgroups as well. You can find the complete list on the SEA website

 

Secular Homeschool Curriculum Marketplace

“This page is for buying and selling SECULAR homeschool materials. You do not have to be secular to be here, but your ITEMS do. There are a multitude of pages on Facebook that sell other types of homeschool materials – if you are selling nonsecular items they belong there, not here.” 

 

Secular Homeschool Curriculum and Materials Buy/Sell (RSO, HO, others)

“This group is for buying and selling History Odyssey, Real Science Odyssey, Build Your Library, Oak Meadow, and other secular materials. Please don’t post non-secular or neutral materials for sale, they will be deleted.”

 

Secular Homeschooling with Netflix & Other Media

This group shares the best in educational digital resources and streaming media! This group is firmly anti-racist. Racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, fatphobia, ableism, ageism, classism, xenophobia, and other forms of bigotry will not be tolerated.

 

Secular Unit Studies & Homeschool Baskets

“This is a secular (religion free) group. We welcome homeschoolers from all walks of life, any faith, or no faith. All science and history resources must be strictly secular. If any recommendations contain religion, they must be from an academic or historical perspective. We are here to have fun and share quality resources with each other. Please join with a positive attitude and open mind. We are all lifelong learners.”

 

Secular Virtual Homeschool Social Clubs

Social distancing has made it so homeschooling is isolating for us. If you feel that way too, please join and lead some virtual club meetings.”
