The link below may help you with legal questions about homeschooling in your state.
Minnesota 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.
ECLECTIC COMMUNITY OF HOMESCHOOLING OPPORTUNITIES IN MINNESOTA (ECHO-MN)
ECHO-MN serves the Twin Cities and greater MN. It is an inclusive outreach group designed to help families with children of all ages learn about homeschooling. It offers quarterly meetings, egroup communication, and connection with local support groups.
HOME EDUCATORS FOR EXCELLENCE
Based in Burnsville, this is a secular group for preschool–8th grade offering high quality, tutor-taught classes in Science, Spanish, Art, and Drama. We also offer service learning, many field trips, and family support. We meet once a week Sept. through May.
MINNESOTA ASSOCIATION OF CHRISTIAN HOME EDUCATORS (MACHE)
MACHE was organized in 1983 in order to encourage Christian families in accordance with biblical principles. MACHE's reason for forming was to assist parents as they bring their children up "in the discipline and instruction of the Lord."
MINNESOTA HOMESCHOOLERS' ALLIANCE (MHA)
MHA is a statewide organization that provides information and support to homeschooling families. The group started informally in 1982. MHA incorporated as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit in 1991, and has been extending a helping hand to Minnesota homeschoolers ever since.
MHA is nonsectarian—there is no religious affiliation or orientation, and people of all faiths and beliefs are welcome. Our members are a diverse group of families with different backgrounds and different approaches to homeschooling, but we all share a common goal: to encourage and facilitate families that choose to educate their children at home.
