Personal Mentoring Program

Get the initial support needed to begin homeschooling with a HOME Mentor! Our HOME mentor will come alongside as you begin your journey and guide you through the initial phases. The following four-session program will be tailored to your questions and needs. 

Session 1 - Defining your "why"

Session 2 - Assessing needs

Session 3 - Defining goals

Session 4 - Evaluating progress


Choose from Mentoring for Beginners or Homeschooling High School below. You will be directed to an appointment menu where you can set up your initial consultation with one of HOME's Homeschool Coaches!

Regional Contacts

In addition, HOME's Regional Representatives bring the ministry of HOME closer to homeschooling families in every area of the state. They are veteran homeschoolers and volunteers dedicated to answering general questions and providing guidance to beginners. Keep in mind that they are also busy homeschooling and may not answer your call right away!

* If you are a military family, have questions about teaching your early learner or high school student, or have a student with special needs, scroll down to be directed to a HOME Leader who can answer your questions.
