Welcome to the Minnetonka Home Educators Association (MHEA) Home Page
While our name reflects a Minnetonka location, many of our families live in neighboring communities as well. Welcome!
MHEA was founded just over 25 years ago by a group of parents devoted to providing support for fellow home educators.
As defined in our Mission Statement, the Minnetonka Home Educators' Association (MHEA) is a group of Christian families joined together to encourage and build one another up as we home school our children. We confess that Jesus Christ is Lord and seek to honor Him daily. Our beliefs can be found in our faith statement on the toolbar to the left.
Moms meet together regularly to enjoy fellowship, learn from others and pray for our families. We also provide opportunities for our children to participate in educational, social, and enrichment activities with their fellow home schooled friends.
MHEA is primarily a moms support group. Our monthly meetings are held the first Monday evening of the month, September through May. Our format changes from month to month and has included guest speakers, a panel of experienced homeschool parents or graduates, small group and large group discussions on various relevant topics and at least one social get together.
In addition to monthly meetings, there are opportunities for members to join in on activities and field trips with other families throughout the year. Highlights have included going to plays, serving together at Feed My Starving Children, book club/social groups, and park/beach dates. Our annual Valentine's Party and Experts Night are family favorites. Activities depend on the interests and initiative of our members and vary from year to year. While attendance at monthly meetings is encouraged, participation in other activities is optional.
Membership guidelines and responsibilities are outlined on the "About MHEA" page and our membership dues are $25 per year.
