    Default Anyone near Iowa City?

    I'm curious if anyone is near (or actually in) Iowa City. We are looking at a possible move, and I am trying to find out if there is any secular homeschooling community there. Thanks!

    From a search, I found this, but the activity doesn't seem recent. There is a link to email; someone might still be connected to the website. And if you look here, there are some contact numbers and emails to try.

    I'm not from Iowa City, but my daughter is going to school there. What I CAN tell you is that it's quite a liberal area, so hopefully you can find some secular homeschoolers there.

    Thanks! I found that first link too, but the last date of posting was 2012, and it looks like the FB group doesn't exist anymore. Surely all the secular homeschoolers didn't just disappear since then... I'm hoping...

    Thanks for that second link, I will check it out. And knowing that it is a liberal area makes me feel a bit more reassured.

    There are a lot of secular homeschoolers here. Most of the ones I have met participate in the HSAP. I think that is the reason the secular group isn't as active anymore. Here is a link to the HSAP's site.
