Missouri 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.
CHRISTIAN HOME EDUCATORS FELLOWSHIP (CHEF)
CHEF has over 40 support groups statewide and has no membership fee. It features an annual conference and curriculum fair, a high school/college/accelerated distance learning conference, a prayer and praise rally, a used book sale, 12th grade graduation, spelling bee, science fair, math olympics, art festival, family craft fair, Christmas ball, mother/daughter tea, father/son campout, and more! It also utilizes a homeschooling attorney and legislative liasons.
FAMILIES FOR HOME EDUCATION (FHE)
FHE is Missouri's original and oldest statewide organization, founded in 1983. FHE maintains a full-time lobbyist in Jefferson City to ensure homeschool freedoms remain intact in Missouri. Regional directors are available for information about home education throughout the state. Special events are held in each region.
MISSOURI ASSOCIATION OF TEACHING CHRISTIAN HOMES (MATCH)
MATCH is a Christian organization dedicated to observing the biblical commands of Deuteronomy 6:4–10, Proverbs 22:6, and Ephesians 6:4. We promote home education and believe that every family has the God-given mandate and responsibility to oversee the education of their children, regardless of their philosophy of education or religious affiliation. MATCH is not a church nor is this organization meant to replace the ministry of the local church to the home education family.
NORTHLAND FAMILIES LEARNING TOGETHER (NFLT)
Based in the Northland of Kansas City, MO, NFLT is an inclusive, secular support group for home educators in the Greater Kansas City area, with activities based mainly in the Northland. NFLT provides support and educational and social events to the Kansas City homeschooling community.
