Learning Outside The Box is a Tacoma/Gig Harbor-area homeschooling community and whole-family support group. We are proud to be one of the only support-oriented homeschooling groups in the Puget Sound area; focusing on creating community support rather than cooperative learning opportunities.

Our Vision for the group is to develop a community of homeschooling families to support each other throughout our entire homeschooling journey. We host annual Not-Back-To-School and Beginning-Of-Summer Picnics, host weekly outside Play In Nature free-play events, organize group admission discounts, and more to facilitate this relationship.

Whether you are already homeschoolers, or are trying to decide whether homeschooling is right for your family, all are welcome to join us.

New members are given a 2 month trial period where they are invited to come to events and participate as full members of our group before they are responsible for contributing their $5 annual dues. Feel free to contact us with your questions.

We're 110 Homeschoolers

New members must be approved by the Organizer
