Welcome to Heritage Homeschoolers!
New members can join again immediately after the holidays (January 1, 2022). If you're undecided, you're welcome to visit us. Please check the public calendar for activities that we've opened up to interested families.
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.
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, 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.
COVID-19 Plans: Based on member survey results, most of our programming will be in person with a strong emphasis on outdoor activities when possible. We will also continue to offer a healthy number of Zoom activities. This is partially due to COVID and also for convenience as we've found that some things just make more sense online. The volume of online programming will be based on the number of volunteers we have to lead online activities.
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.
While Cobb County is our home base for meetings 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.
