Welcome to the Secure Side of the Sample Homeschool Group Web Site!

Over 60,000 Homeschool Families and Growing...

 

In talking with group leaders over the years, here is a summary of the features that they like the best.  We have been told over and over again how our service saves the leadership a lot of time, keeps good leaders in place so they want to continue their jobs, and prevents them from getting burned out:

 

-         Web site management.  Our groups tell us they love the tools we have setup to manage their web sites.  They tell us we are so easy to use yet fully automated and very professional.

-      Class Registrations.  Setup classes online and let your families choose from a list of available classes.  Classes open, close, and cancel automatically -- complete with waiting lists and credit card integration that marks families as paid right online.   Co-ops take note!

-         Multiple Administrators.  Setup many administrators to share the work of maintaining a site.  Assign leadership rights to specific areas of the site to manage.

-         FREE 60 day trial period.  Try our service with no obligations, FREE for 60 days.  Hundreds of groups have joined and we are currently serving over 60,000 Homeschool families!

-         Secure side / Public side.  There are two sides to your web site: secure; which requires a login / password and public; which is open to the world.

-         Online Calendar Event Signups.  It takes about a minute to setup an event on the calendar, and it takes another minute to flag the event as a signup.  This event is automatically placed on the calendar, on your home page and is listed in a special way as a signup.  Assign someone to manage the signup, automate the emails, collect payments via Paypal if needed, get a list of who is signed up, set waiting lists, automate reminders, and set a maximum attendance.Group leaders think this one is the best!

-         Forum.  We let a couple group leaders that had used the Yahoo forum for years mold and fashion our forum.  You can setup moderated forums, add categories to forums, create secure forums that assign just a particular group of families to that specific forum, organize your forums with categories, and allows each family to choose how they want to be notified: a lot, a lot but summarized, daily digest or weekly.

-         Weekly Updates.  Each week we send an automated newsletter to each family to tell them what has changed on your web site in the last week.  It keeps each family in touch with what is going on in the group.

-         Registrations.  Set up your family registrations online! You can go totally electronic with online agreement to your Statement of Faith and paying fees via Paypal, or mix and match electronic registrations with paper forms to download.  Very flexible!  The registration process is fully automated and automatically feeds into the membership directory that is online. 

-         Surveys.  Set up a survey and collect responses online.

-         Membership Management.  Each family that registers with the site can only be included in the site if someone in leadership approves them.  You have complete control over the registration and membership process.  When you approve a family, you begin to build the family online directory that is searchable, printable, updateable.  Each family sets up their own login and password and are responsible for updating their own family contact information.

-         Email Tool.  The site is automated with emails for weekly updates, forum notifications,  and sign up reminders. You can email all or any family through the email tool.  Assign categories (such as "Teen") and email a group of families within that category.  Schedule your emails to go out immediately or at a later date.

-         Calendar, Classifieds, Links, Newsletters, Photo Gallery.  Let families upload events to the calendar, useful links to other web sites, and pictures for the photo gallery. All you have to do is approve them!  Upload archived issues of newsletters for easy download at anytime.

-         Membership Card.  Once you have the families approved within the site, you can now make this option available to your families so they can print their own membership card.

 

If you would like start a FREE 60 day trial period or would like some of your specific questions answered, please let us know.  The cost for our service is $7 per family, per year for active families using the service.

 

Let us know how we can serve and be a blessing to you and to your families!
