HOMELINK REGISTRATION IS OPEN...FIRST DAY OF CLASS IS SEPTEMBER 3rd/5th, 2019..

What is HOMELINK?

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.

In order to attend Homelink, you must be a SHARE member, because
that is how liability insurance covers you and your family.

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!
