The Amazing List of Facebook Groups for Homeschooling Support - California & Worldwide

Facebook groups are an incredible homeschooling resource. They allow you to connect with other homeschooling parents, in a familiar setting with an organic mix of experts and newbies. Facebook homeschooling groups are a wonderful way to supplement your social network and maximize your resources. We recommend everyone find a few homeschooling groups to join. We've provided a varied list of Facebook groups - with something for everyone. We don't endorse or recommend any of these groups, we're simply sharing resources for you to explore, and to decide what works best for your homeschooling networking and support needs.

Please note that most Facebook groups are private and require a request to join the group which usually involves a set of a few simple mandatory questions to answer and an agreement to their group's rules. Please assume all of the groups we've listed are private unless we note that they are public. We've only included groups that are open to anyone to join, without a fee or requirement of membership — providing you agree to their rules/code of conduct for joining the group.

This is a living document, is currently being added to, and will be periodically updated. Do you have a Facebook group to share with us? Please email us at with any recommendations.

Your post should contain only the activity in question and optionally the age of your child. Your post should not contain a lot of additional commentary or judgment about your kid's activity.
