You can use Paypal, a credit card through Paypal or send cash or check (details on the form).

S.H.A.R.E. 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 and leadership is totally Christian; however, 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!

S.H.A.R.E. offers many activities and classes  to supplement and enrich your home education experience, including an E-NEWSLETTER that is filled with both upcoming SHARE activities and other opportunities that your homeschoolers may benefit from.  Be the first to find out about such events as:

*FIELD TRIPS

Answers to Frequently Asked Questions

*AS A SHARE MEMBER, DO I HAVE TO TAKE A HOMELINK CLASS?  You do NOT have to take a Homelink class to be a SHARE member.  But, for insurance purposes, you do have to be a SHARE member to take a Homelink class.  laugh


*MAY I DROP OFF MY CHILDREN FOR CLASSES?    Yes!  You can drop off your child and they stay in the supervised cafeteria in between classes or while waiting to be picked up at no extra cost!  laugh


*WHY DOES IT LOOK LIKE SOME OF MY CLASSES ARE MISSING?  If you log in to manage your classes and it looks like some of them are missing, be sure to check both CURRENT and FUTURE tabs.  When we added a start date of September 6 to some classes, the website considered that a "future" class.  Once September 6 comes, they should all be under the "current" classes tab.


*DOES HOMELINK ALLOW PAYMENTS?   It all depends on the teacher.  Some teachers allow monthly payments, other prefer that you pay by the semester or in full. However, if you are having a financial difficulty right now, every one of our teachers will be happy to work out a payment plan with you.  Just contact them.


*HOW DO I CONTACT A TEACHER?   Both the public and private Homelink pages have information about contacting teachers.  Here is a link:
https://www.homeschool-life.com/283/file_retrieve/96657


*I AM CONFUSED ABOUT HOW TO PAY?   Here is a link from the website with a tutorial explaining how to make a payment:
https://www.homeschool-life.com/283/file_retrieve/88632


*WHEN DO CLASSES BEGIN?   Here is a link to our calendar page:
https://www.homeschool-life.com/283/file_retrieve/97040


*THE WEBSITE WILL NOT LET ME PAY THE TEACHER WITH PAYPAL...WHAT NOW? 
Some of the teachers have decided not to accept Paypal payments anymore because the fees have gone up.  We are choosing not to use the "pay friends and family" option with no fees because parents are not giving the teacher a gift--rather it is for services rendered and that seems unethical.  

If there is no Paypal option, you will need to make your payment by check or cash.  You give it to Cathy, she manually posts payments and gets it to the teacher on the same day.  Works well!

Robinson Karate at the Homelink Gym

This is NOT a Homelink class, but will be held at our Homelink location. Check your email for the details. Classes begin on September 8th.

Our hope is that this will be very convenient for some families to take a Karate class at the Homelink location.

Great Homeschool Convention

Great Homeschool Convention in St. Louis...March 16-18, 2023!!

Speech and Debate Club

ARCH is an amazing community where children as young as ten can learn alongside seniors in high school. The lessons in rhetoric and public speaking will never be forgotten. This club is a must for any homeschooled child in St Louis!

We are a STOA speech and debate club that meets weekly:
South STL County (Rooftop Church) - Mondays from 2-5pm.
St. Charles County (Liberty Church) - Tuesdays from 7-9pm.
Mon, Aug. 22-1st Meeting South STL County.
Tue, Aug. 23-1st Meeting St. Charles County.
Club leader is Jeremy Zilkie.
(314) 489-4607

. Stoa Speech & Debate is for Christian homeschool students between the ages of 12-18.

· Students ages 10-11 can attend, but need to be “mature” in their educational interests and emotional development.

· The materials and concepts we cover can be challenging and require focus.

Bloom and Grow Speech Therapy

Do you have concerns about your child’s speech or language?

Does your child struggle with academics, vocabulary, following directions, or reading?

Detecting a speech or language problem can be tricky if you don’t know the traits of typical development. The simple rule of thumb is a language problem may exist if a child doesn’t understand and/or express what they want to say as well as other children of the same age. Research shows that the earlier problems are detected and treated, the better children progress and keep pace with peers in learning and social relationships.

Stacy Bick, former homeschooling mom and Speech Therapist at BLOOM AND GROW SPEECH THERAPY (formerly Victory Speech Therapy and Autism), now has openings to help your child with any concerns you may have from articulation, vocabulary, language, listening skills, auditory processing, stuttering, to vocal quality. She is offering a free 15 minute screening. And if therapy is needed, she offers a 50% discount to homeschooling families. Virtual Therapy is also available, if desired!

Contact her at [email protected] or call 314-635-5400.
