Explosive Interest in Home Education

GSHE you've got this

More and more families are choosing to home educate their children! We’re seeing explosive interest in NH; we are consistently adding more than 40 people to our Facebook group each week! Contact Granite State Home Educators if you have questions, or want to join us for an upcoming info session to learn more and have questions answered. We have in-person discussions coming up soon: one in Dover on July 21 and one in Northwood on August 10. Tickets are free. We are also offering two online events in August: an Ask Me Anything re Homeschooling and a virtual info session. Watch for those to be announced soon.
