New Resources Page!

We have added a Resource tab to our website that we will be developing further this semester. For now, it is a short list of some of the opportunities available to area homeschoolers. There you will find co-ops, extra-curriculars, teachers, information hubs & organizations that offer classes & general support. We pulled this together quickly in response to several requests for such a list & know we have missed many.  So if you are part of, or think of a group that should be listed, please feel free to send us their/your information and we will get it added as soon as we can. Our goal at the CHC is to help support and inform, and this is just another step in that direction. You can click on the “resources” tab in the top right corner of the webpage, or simply click here.

Happy Hunting!
