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 (volunteers needed!)
*PARTIES (volunteers needed!)
*DANCES AND THE PROM
*OUR ANNUAL ART SHOW (volunteers needed!)
*NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM (volunteers needed!)
(We hold 3!--Kindergarten, 8th grade, and High School)
*STANDARDIZED TESTING (volunteers needed!)

Families for Home Education

Also, check the page for upcoming homeschool seminars--they are wonderful!!! Clicking the logo below will take you to their Region 5 page, which is our area.
Speech and Debate Club
Do you know about the ARCH Speech & Debate Club?
We are a STOA speech and debate club that meets weekly, on Mondays at Rooftop Church in Affton (South St. Louis County) from 2-5 p.m. Club leader is Jeremy Zilkie. They are also beginning a St. Charles group this coming fall.
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.
Jeff Bader's Inspire Your HeART Club is meeting regularly. Please contact Jeff for more info.
Jeff Bader is a long-time art/science teacher at Homelink. He has taught at various other homeschool learning centers too. Jeff and his wife, Lisa, are wonderful Christian people. They home educated their children and have been working with homeschool students for quite a few years.
If you have a teen who is serious about their art, please give Jeff a call with more information such as dates. I highly vouch for both Jeff and Lisa--love them dearly! ~Cathy Mullins
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.
