Iowa Homeschool Support Groups

Homeschool support groups in your state are an excellent way to gain more assistance and guidance in your homeschooling endeavors. A regional support group fosters a wonderful sense of community among homeschooling families and allows for more opportunities to exchange ideas, plan group outings, and share in the overall experience of homeschooling! While Calvert supports the development of community among homeschool families, this list does not constitute affiliation between Calvert School and the groups represented below.

HOMESCHOOLING UNDER GOD'S SUPERVISION (HUGS)
HUGS is a group of homeschoolers based in Ankeny. HUGS is a group of over 100 families that offers monthly meetings, monthly field trips, monthly art classes, and a chance to connect with other homeschooling families and a wealth of opportunities for your child.
 
 
IOWA HOME EDUCATORS (IHE)
IHE is an inclusive, nonaffiliated, member-led support group. We plan activities in the Des Moines Metro area, such as park days, field trips, and casual get-togethers at area attractions.
