ETC's participation has grown to around 100 member families in the last six years. Some members are taking their fist steps into homeschooling, while others have been homeschooling for 10 or 15 years.
ETC children range in age from birth to adults, with the heaviest population in the K-4th grade range (as is true for most support groups). There are fewer older children who are homeschooled over all, but we are thankful to have gained a lot of participants with children in the Jr. High and High School age range.
We have participants from as far east as Huntsville; as far west as Siloam Springs; as far north as Missouri; and as far south as Greenland.
Similarities and Differences
Our unifying qualities are our Christian faith and our eclectic approach to homeschooling. But don't let the "eclectic" part concern you, if you are just starting out....it really just means that we all kind of do our own thing. We are really a pretty diverse group.
