Important: Coronavirus Update
The HEART board wants to let all of our current and prospective families know that we are keeping a close watch on the ongoing pandemic guidelines and recommendations. As we prayerfully proceed with the upcoming school year we will do our best to keep everyone informed of any applicable decisions made pertaining to our clubs and events. We ask above all that everyone remain respectful of the various needs of all our families during these unprecedented times. We will not make face coverings mandatory at our events, but encourage families to do so if they choose. In addition, please stay home if you or anyone you've been in contact with has been sick or is exhibiting any symptoms until you are cleared of illness, practice social distancing and perform appropriate hand washing. We suggest as club or activity leaders you make every effort to have outdoor meeting places. Please keep the board members as well as all of our families in your prayers and feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns.
Welcome to H.E.A.R.T.
Whether you're new to homeschooling, or already homeschooling but new to Marion County, H.E.A.R.T. Inc. is a group that can help you on your journey.
We are NOT a private/academic school, often referred to as Umbrella Schools.
Each family in our group is independently responsible for the education of their children, their choice of curriculum, and record keeping.
Our group provides the platform for people to exchange ideas, resources, personal experiences, and at times benefit from group rates or discounts.
Thanks to some of our members who volunteer their time, we're also able to provide various social, academic, and sporting events. These activities give our homeschool children the opportunity to come together with other children.
You must be a member to participate in our events and activities.
To become a member, click on "Join" located at the top right of this page.
We accept membership year-round.
We look forward to getting to know you and your family!
