Parents ETC is a non-partisan, non-sectarian, volunteer-led support group providing resources for educational activities, communication, encouragement, fellowship, and information to home school families; and to establish a support network for Home Education Leaders of the Treasure Coast.
Parents ETC was established with Christian values, and its Board of Directors must sign a Statement of Faith that affirms basic Christian beliefs. However, PETC is open to any homeschooling family, regardless of religious or denominational affiliation. Members will not be pressured to change their religious beliefs in any way. Because the organization has Christian roots, aspects of the Christian faith may be expressed in its activities and communication from time to time.
Whether you're new to homeschooling, or already homeschooling but new to the Treasure Coast, Parents ETC is a group that can help you on your journey. We serve families from Port St Lucie, Fort Pierce, Stuart, Palm City and Jensen Beach.
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.
