Begun in 2011 under a different name, North Shore Homeschool aims to provide home educators in Northern Chicagoland with group learning opportunities, play dates, and social support.

As a co-op group, we offer "cafeteria-style" events, where you choose what interests you and your children. Please let us know if you are willing to volunteer your time to coordinate events in whatever areas you are strongest in.

Our goal, through respectful dialogue and inclusive practices, is to welcome a variety of home education philosophies, religious backgrounds, and parenting choices.  We openly support the LGBT community and those who, for whatever reason, may feel excluded from other homeschooling groups.

Our members represent the diversity of the homeschooling spectrum--from unschoolers to school-at-homers.  Through a variety of activities together, we aim to provide each other with resources, allies, and friends.

We're 177 Homeschoolers
