Homeschool Resources

ECCHO has a wishlist on Amazon: linked here.  This list features items needed/wanted for classroom and program purposes. We quickly go through items such as trash bags, printer ink, paper goods, hand soap, etc., and donations of these items help to keep our registration fees down as low as possible.  Thank you!

The Homeschool Buyer Co-op is a free homeschooling organization for both new and veteran homeschoolers. Co-op membership is free and confidential, and entitles homeschooling families to discounts from over a hundred educational suppliers. They also sponsor "GroupBuys" for curriculum packages that save homerschooling families lots of money. On the site you'll find lots of free information, such as databases of free curriculum, field trips, and educational contests and scholarships. Highly recommended. Click here for more information.

Homeschooling High School seems intimidating.  Check out this link to a document with great resources!

Other Area Homeschool Groups
Please note: These groups are not affiliated with ECCHO. We share this information because, as homeschoolers, we root for each other and want others to know there is a wide variety of homeschool support available to them. This list is not complete, there are more out there!  It is up to the discretion of your family to vet the groups however you choose, as not all of these groups hold the same values or belief system as ECCHO.
