Any day is a great day to homeschool your children!!

What is SHARE?


Thank you for checking out our website!  

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 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 the home education experience, although during this time of covid restrictions, all of them might not be available.
