Homeschool Support Groups
Now is the time to join a local homeschool support group. No where else can you find advice, support, fun activities and friends for all ages in one location!
Because homeschool support groups come and go rather often, we do not try to keep an updated list of every support group in the state. However, we do list groups in the tri-county area (Montgomery, Autauga and Elmore). If you would like to add or update your group, or if you discover that one no longer exists, please email us at info(at)outlookacademy(dot)com with Support Group in the subject line.
If a group near you is not listed here, check the list at Leaping From the Box. It has a very comprehensive and regularly updated statewide list.
Fellowship of Home Educators
FHE is a group of families in Prattville and surrounding areas who support one another in the area of home education. We offer many educational opportunities as well as social gatherings for our children.
Elmore County Homeschool Organization (ECHO)
ECHO is a support group for all home schooling families in the greater Elmore County area, including Millbrook, Wetumpka, Prattville and Montgomery. We seek to provide a positive socialization environment for home schooled children and to furnish a forum for support and encouragement to their parents in the home schooling process.
Maxwell Area Home Educators (MAHE)
Maxwell Area Home Educators (MAHE) is a support group formed primarily to encourage military homeschoolers in the MGM (Maxwell/Gunter/Montgomery) area regardless of their reasons for homeschooling, philosophy, or method of instruction. MAHE is NOT a legal "church school," but a network of homeschoolers working together to assist one another in our homeschooling efforts. If you are new to homeschooling or are long term homeschool parents looking to broaden your child's academic experience, there is much we can do to help you.
