So Much More!

One weekend a year is not what the Homeschool Expo folks are all about! While the Homeschool Expo is an annual event designed for those on the homeschool path—and for those who are considering it, the Expo website offers much more. Have you visited the Expo site and explored the directory? Curriculum providers, online classes and email lists for homeschool groups around the state are all at your fingerprints. The Expo is a great event…but homeschooling is a 24/7, 365 days a year proposition. Visit the website, browse the selections, submit information or encourage your favorite curriculum provider to do so. The resources needed for the homeschool adventure abound.

Were you aware there is a group of homeschool families who have adopted? They share their joys and challenges just like the folks in the Auburn – Opelika Homeschool Group. Join in the email lists and be encouraged as you encourage.

Perhaps you would like to plan a field trip to go along with your student’s studies. The directory offers some great options—and you can submit your own listings too. Maybe the Homeschool Option through Cullman Christian School would answer your high school student’s needs.
One of the beauties of home education is the variety of options available. The Homeschool Expo website wants to be a source of information to guide you through the adventure of homeschooling! Be a part. And a great way to begin is the Expo itself. With dozens of workshops ranging from controlling the costs of college to keeping the freezer stocked in the midst of homeschool busyness, there is something for every parent. The young ones have their own options: KidsZone and Film Camp to name the biggies. The Adventure awaits.
