Welcome to the Southeast Missouri homeschool community!
Many families in this area homeschool. We come from a variety of personal and church backgrounds, but we all believe that parents should have primary responsibility for the education of their children.
We have an active co-op with over 60 families involved! This co-op meets weekly in Cape Girardeau, MO and offers activities for preschoolers through high school age, including field trips, holiday parties and performances. The majority of families are from the Cape Girardeau/Jackson area, but there are quite a few families that travel an hour or more to participate.
For information about the co-op, contact the current board members at firstname.lastname@example.org.
New learning opportunities are being added to this website regularly. Please check out our Local page for the latest on places to go and things to do in Southeast Missouri!
