WHAT IS S.H.A.R.E.?
S.H.A.R.E. is an independent support group organized and operated by moms and dads who are homeschooling their children in the south city/county and mid-county areas of St. Louis, Missouri. We also have many members who cross the bridge from Illinois.
Each homeschool is as unique as the family who is doing it. Some families are large, others are small; some use a structured curriculum, others use no curriculum at all; some are homeschooling veterans of twenty years, many are just beginning the journey.
The majority of us are Christians and we do start our activities with prayer but people of all faiths are welcome in S.H.A.R.E.. Our common ground is the belief that homeschooling is a wonderful lifestyle and that our children can greatly benefit from it.
The goal of this support group is to help every family to be the kind of homeschooling family that God wants them to be.
