Welcome to S.H.A.R.E.!


Thank you for checking out our website!  

S.H.A.R.E. (St. Louis Homeschooling Activities, Resources and Encouragement) is an  independent support group founded and operated  by volunteer parents who home educate their  children in the Greater St. Louis Area. Families from  all over the St. Louis region and nearby Illinois  counties are members of SHARE, although we are  based in the South City, South County and Mid County areas.

We are a diverse group of homeschoolers with a wide variety of learning and teaching styles. Some families are large, others are small; some are homeschooling veterans of twenty years, many are just beginning.

The majority of members are Christians but people of all faiths are welcome in S.H.A.R.E.  We are united by our choice to homeschool our children and give them the best possible educational experience AND by our desire to protect homeschooling rights in Missouri and elsewhere. 

Our main goal is to inform, equip and encourage families in their homeschooling journey!



Our Homelink Learning Center

HOMELINK is a homeschool learning center that is sponsored by SHARE.  You do not have to attend Homelink classes to be a SHARE member!  Homelink is an activity just like a field trip or a dance.  All SHARE activities are open to all SHARE members, regardless of what learning center they may or may not be attending.

Click HERE to view classes we offered last school year. CLICK ON EACH CLASS TITLE TO SEE COURSE DESCRIPTION, GRADE LEVEL, PRICE, ETC. 

Click HERE to go to a page that talks about Homelink policies,location, and more.

**If you are interested in classes for next year, follow this guide**

March 2019 - Interest Boards are simple sign-up sheets that we have in the Homelink Cafeteria that you can tentatively let us know that you are VERY interested in having your student take a certain class next year, even though the schedule is not out yet. This does not obligate you for the class nor is it considered registration. This is an aid to help us to design the schedule with the hope of making it work for every student. These boards will be up some time in March for present Homelink families to sign

April 2019 - The first two weeks of April will have our Interest Boards available to everyone and we will also be offering tours of the facility with the option to sit in on classes. Appointments will need to be made for tours and sit-ins, but you can come any time to look at the Interest Boards. A reminder email will be sent out to SHARE members.

April 2019- The last two weeks of April will find Sandy Arneson and myself “living at Panera” designing the 2019-20 schedule. laugh

May 6, 2019 - If all our plans go well, this will be the first day that you can register for the 2019-20 Homelink classes. Or you can think about it all summer and we plan to have an Orientation Night, like always, in late August. Classes will begin either September 3 or 10—not sure yet.
