I have found Homeschool Connections a step above other homeschool groups I have attended. The wide variety of classes is beneficial. But even more outstanding is the personal help with questions and concerns. All of the people working through Homeschool Connections have always been extremely kind and helpful. I highly recommend Homeschool Connections.

We love Homeschool Connections! The classes are incredible– from core subjects to unique ones like scrapbooking, choir, and digital filmmaking. Plus, we’ve built this awesome connection with other families and staff at our campus. It’s not just classes, it’s community.

We love Homeschool Connections! My favorite things about it would have to be the very kind and informative director and staff who are always eager to answer questions promptly, it’s very organized and well run, awesome class choices and nice teachers, financial help is available if needed, and there are many locations to choose from!

My children have attended homeschool connections for 9 years, and it has been a huge blessing to our family. The high school classes help them prepare for college, being in a classroom setting, working with another teacher, having tasks due on a certain schedule. Plus, for me, I enjoyed them doing all their science labs at homeschool!

Homeschool Connections was a huge asset to my high school education. In addition to providing me with an outstanding background in the sciences, the structure of Homeschool Connections prepared me well for the structure of university classes, and my transition from high school to college was smoother than that of most of my peers who attended traditional public schools.

From the first day I attended classes at Homeschool Connections, I knew it was a place for me. I immediately felt a sense of belonging – everyone was so friendly and welcoming. In fact, I’m still best friends with one of the other students I met my very first day!

Homeschool Bill - HB 4808 - Needs Support
ATTENTION ALL HOMESCHOOLERS AND EVERYONE WHO SUPPORTS HOMESCHOOLING FREEDOMS...
Below is a press release from State Representative Reilly's office.
Rep. Reilly bill to defend privacy for homeschool students
State Rep. John Reilly introduced legislation to protect homeschooling families from a planned requirement that they submit
Educational Development Plans to a local school district.
Education Development Plans are academic and career evaluations, mandated by the state’s Department of Education for
all public school students starting in the seventh grade.
“Credible sources have reported to my office that the state Department of Education will seek a regulation to require all homeschool students taking more than two courses at a virtual academy to submit an Education Development Plan,” said Reilly, a member of the House Education Reform Committee. “We have thousands of homeschoolers across the state of Michigan that are thriving in virtual academies thanks to new found cooperation between homeschooling parents and local school districts. Maintaining student privacy has been integral in forging these new great relationships.”
House Bill 4808 was introduced today and has been assigned to the Education Reform Committee.
“We cannot jeopardize the educational progress and freedom for approximately 50,000 homeschool students in Michigan,” Reilly said. “They are doing well, so we have to make sure this co-operative relationship can continue without any limitations or invasions of privacy.”
