Alaska 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 on 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 between homeschool families, this listing does not constitute affiliation between Calvert School and the groups represented above.

NORTH STAR INDEPENDENT HOMESCHOOLERS
We are families of homeschoolers in Interior Alaska's North Star Borough who homeschool our children without taking any government monies or oversight to do so. This is a great and legal option for all homeschooling families in Alaska!
As independent homeschoolers, we - Dads and Moms - assume complete responsibility for educating our children. This is unlike Alaska's charter school programs (IDEA, Raven, etc.), in which this responsibility is shared between taxpayers, the charter system, its employees, and the parents.
CHRISTIAN HOME EDUCATORS OF KODIAK
C.H.E.K. was organized in 1990. Its original purpose was to get together with other home schoolers who like themselves felt pretty much alone in their homeschooling endeavors. Since that time, God has blessed CHEK with numerous other families and now boasts a membership of 25 families strong.
