Our families love us! We offer a style of learning center unique to the St. Louis area. But don't take our word for it. Click the image to see what good things are being said about Homelink classes.
*"Our family has been taking classes at Homelink for about 10 years, and it’s been an invaluable part of our homeschool journey. From foreign language to science to art, the teachers, the curriculum, and the other kids have added so much to my children’s academic and social experiences. Homelink teachers provide great instruction in subjects that I wouldn’t be able to teach on my own. In our family, “Homelink day” is always one of the best days of the week!" Rebekah Matt (7/18)
*"Thank you for everything you do for these kids! We really appreciate it and my husband and I are so thrilled to have found SHARE and Homelink for our boys!” Jacqui Nischwitz (5/18)
*"Absolutely my son will be back! He's already planning his schedule for next year! I just can't tell you how pleased I am with Homelink....
...my son is happy again and he's back to loving learning and school." Mrs. H. (5/18)

WHAT IS S.H.A.R.E.?
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!
SOME THINGS S.H.A.R.E. HAS TO OFFER
