Welcome to Heritage Homeschoolers!
We are an inclusive support group for Black homeschool families in Cobb County, Georgia. We strive to create a sense of community, belonging, and relationship for Black homeschooled children, their parents/caretakers, and other homeschool families who share this vision.
Support Group: Our group meets regularly for enrichment activities, service projects, field trips, park days, nature-based activities, indoor activities, play dates, family events, educational road trips, book clubs, a graduation ceremony, ParentSchool topical online sessions, Mom's Nights Out, Dad's Nights Out, and more. The group is member-led, so activities are determined based on the needs and desires of the group, with each family having opportunities to plan events.
Enrichment Classes: On Thursdays, we gather for enrichment classes from 10am - 3pm in Powder Springs. Classes are à la carte for flexibility, but most families stay the entire time. There's an additional cost for the Thursday classes, and they're optional.
We are not a school, and we don't have a drop-off program. We encourage our parents to participate and engage in the community alongside their children as we work together to build relationships within the "village."
We serve homeschool families with children in K through 12th grade, with most of our families having students in elementary and middle school. We have plenty of high schoolers, but they are not as active as the younger students. If you have a teen, maybe you could help us in that area!
Some events do have a minimum age requirement to ensure that our families with older students are well-supported. Member families MUST have at least one school-age homeschooled child. If your oldest homeschooled child is not at least 5 years old, please wait and apply later.
Location: While Cobb County is our home base for meetings, classes, and most events, we do have activities throughout the county and explore all of Greater Atlanta and beyond on our field trips. Cobb County residency is not a requirement for membership.
