Here's a comment from one of our past attendees:


"I attended the Getting Started workshop, along with my mom and daughter, and wanted to say thank you for everything you are doing to support and encourage homeschooling in Maine. God must be very pleased with your efforts on His behalf. The workshop couldn't have been any more affirming for me, and really brought my mom in on the big picture in a way I never could have done myself."


Pre-registration is required. Pre-registered attendees will receive a workshop packet upon arrival. Below is a registration form. Your form can be mailed or scanned by email. Contact the HOME Office with questions or for more information.
