Homeschoolers By The Sea

Looking for a New Homeschool Group?

Homeschoolers by the Sea was founded in 1994 to support Christian homeschool families in the St. Johns area. We have two membership plans to provide more options for your family. Whether your family is looking for organized weekly classes or a more relaxed atmosphere only to socialize, we hope HBTS will be the perfect fit!

HBTS is not an umbrella shool and all families are responsible for fulfilling their district's homeschool requirements.  Families can choose the curriculum that works best for their children to complete at home and then join our co-op for enrichment.  We can't wait to meet you!

Our group includes two types of members: co-op members and general members.

2023-2024 Year in Review

We had such a wonderful year! Here are a few classes, field trips, and events that we enjoyed to give you a glimpse into our wonderful homeschool group!


The 4-5 year olds learned about the alphabet, zoo animals, weather, and rhyming.

The 6-8 year olds had classes in PE, health, science, and fables.

The 9-12 year olds studied money, physical education, health, art, and survival skills.

The 13 and up class continued with their world history study and enjoyed a financial literacy class.


Our homeschoolers love exploring Jacksonville and St. Augustine!  We loved visiting Sweet Pete's, St. Augustine Aquarium, Amazing Grace Family Farm, Jacksonville Zoo, Station 19 Firehouse, and Publix.


Co-Op members get a little extra fun with their membership with Special Event days like a Christmas Party, Science Day, Book Character Day, Talent & Art Shows, Field Day, a helicopter landing, and a Completion Ceremony!
