We are more than just a support group...


Children gather around a globe. Four children look at an open book as one girl turns a page. The 12th is circled with the text Save the Date handwritten on a calendar. A group of four children smile and run in a grassy field. An open book rests on top of other books in what appears to be a library. A family look at the camera while lying on the grass while having a picnic.
 

AHSG Graduation 2022

We invite you to be a part of the 2022 Graduation Committee!

Arundel Homeschool Support Group has helped families plan a memorable Christ-centered graduation for homeschool seniors and their families for many years.  Each senior and at least one parent attends monthly meetings to help create senior year memories and plan the ceremony. Families add notes every year to the job 'playbooks' for graduation so that future families have steps to follow for everything from flowers to music to diplomas to make graduation a success.

Future Meetings:

All seniors and one parent from each family must attend.
All meetings will take place at SPEP, 110 Ritchie Hwy, Pasadena, MD 21122.
