    Default Hello from West Virginia

    It appears there are only two homeschooling associations in West Virginia. Neither are secular. Hooray! I found a resource for homeschooling my daughter this year. We are learning 5th grade math, english, history. But I look forward to teaching outside the text(box). Unfortunately, I feel very isolated in West Virginia not just because all my friends and family are in my home state of Florida, but also there are limited outlets for homeschoolers. It seems West Virginia is just now gaining exposure to the option to homeschool their children. I'm determined even if I am a pioneer in this state.

    Welcome, Cheetah! It is great to have you here! You are definitely right about WV. It is one of the few states that I can't even find one secular support group in. ((sigh)) I'm thinking it must be quite lonesome to be a secular homeschooler there. I hope this site, though, will make you feel a little more empowered so that YES, you can become a pioneer!!

    Hi y'all! :-)

    I grew up in Parkersburg, WV, moved away when I was 18, and am now living in the middle of NJ. Only get back every couple of years and always try to visit Dolly Sods. (I want my ashes scattered there so I, and any who visit me, can always look upon the beautiful mountains of home.) I can so imagine how hard it'd be to find like-minded secular homeschoolers in WV. It's hard enough in NJ and we're as diverse as you can get.

    Hi! What city are you in? I'm in Beckley. I'm actually thinking about putting together a secular homeschooling group. Not sure how much interest there would be... but if there is, I would do it. My son is still only 3yrs old, but I'm already interested in meeting other homeschool families, especially those of the secular variety.

    Welcome! We're leading a pioneer life as secular homeschoolers too (up in New Brunswick, Canada) and this forum has been a life saver! We're an active bunch here at SHS so anytime you feel lonely come on over!

    Syberchick70, I went to church camp (Camp Cowen, a Baptist camp) in Beckley. :-)

    Currently, I'm living in between Trenton and Newark, NJ. (Sorry, I don't give my exact city on public forums, especially after being on the receiving end of psycho hate-filled email & form posts from a couple of other homeschoolers.)

SecularHomeschool.com is a community and information source where secular homeschoolers ARE the majority. It is the home for non-religious homeschoolers, eclectic homeschoolers, freethinking homeschoolers AND anyone interested in homeschooling irrespective of religion. This site is an INCLUSIVE community that recognizes that homeschoolers choose secular homeschool materials and resources for a variety of reasons and to accomplish a variety of personal and educational goals. Although SecularHomeschool.com, and its members, have worked hard to compile a comprehensive directory of secular curricula, it does not attest that all materials advertised on our site, in our newsletters, or on our social media profiles are 100% secular. Rather, SecularHomeschool.com respects the aptitude of each individual homeschool parent to fully research any curriculum before acquiring it, to ensure that it holistically meets the educational, personal, and philosophical goals of each homeschooler.
