North Spokane Christian Homeschoolers

This group serves as a online and in real life support-group for current or prospective Christian Homeschoolers in the North Spokane Washington area. We have monthly play-dates, and other occasional activities. It is important for a group to be engaging and safe that members be active either online, in real life, or best yet a combination of the two. We would love to have you join us. We are a casual and relaxed group with no specific Christian denomination and who welcome all forms of home-schooling from traditional to unschooling, and everything in-between.

Spokane Homeschoolers

SHS is a diverse group of homeschooling families in the Inland Empire. We include and celebrate families across the spectrum of homeschooling styles and philosophies, and have no official political, philosophical, or religious orientation. SHS exists both as an active online resource and an IRL alternative to other local homeschool groups as a place for homeschoolers to play, learn, and relax with each other in a context where homeschooling, not religion, is the primary common denominator.

West Plains Homeschool Co-op (Spokane area)

Medical Lake/Cheney/Airway Heights/surrounding West Plains area

We are an informal & free co-op open to all homeschool families living on the West Plains (outside Spokane). The group began in February 2014 to address the growing number of homeschooling families in the West Plains area that wished to join a group, but not drive to Spokane. We offer monthly art, science, & (about to start) music workshops, along with fun monthly events (Cultural Fairs, Nature Hikes, Mystery Workshops, Reader’s Theater, Art & Science Fairs, etc.) and various local field trips. At this time the workshops are split between a free church hall in Medical Lake and the Cheney library. It is a co-op, so families take turns helping host workshops or field trips, but there is no obligation. All workshops are adapted to all age groups: preschool up through teens, and are mainly social and fun, not using any one homeschool style. The Facebook group page is also used as a forum for local homeschool families to share advice, events, and support.


West Plains Weekly Homeschool Classes

A small, fun, hands-on, educational gathering of homeschool families, co-op style!
