    Hi Friends,
    I am new to this community but not super new to homeschooling. I have been homeschooling my 9 y/o son and 5 y/o daughter since the beginning and they don't know anything other than this. I am here on this site because we started our journey with Classical Conversations and while we have done that the last 5 years, it is time for us to move on. The differences in our values and opinions are now too great to ignore and I realize that while I am not new to homeschooling, I am completely new to secular homeschooling and have no idea what to do! I am hoping by joining this group I can find some support from others that have gone before me. I have no absolutely no idea how to find support or answers to my questions about doing this that aren't based on religion, so this is my first attempt to connect. I would love to meet up with other moms locally and pick your brain on your community resources, and locally based groups. I'm happy to be here and hope to find the encouragement to keep on keeping on!

    Very glad to have you here, Katie! I'm a faith-based turned secular homeschooler too, and I can certainly identify with the bewilderment of it all. Back when I made my transition there were truly almost no secular curricula to choose from. The great news is that now there are TONS of options for secular homeschooling - - both paid and free - - and you are very likely to be able to mix and match to find the perfect fit for your family.

    Don't hesitate to PM me if you have any questions about the site itself or how to navigate it, either. That's what I'm here for!

    Welcome to the forum!
    I'm a work-at-home mom to three, homeschool enthusiast, and avid planner fueled by lattes and Florida sunshine. My oldest is 6 and is a fircond grader (that's somewhere between first and second, naturally), my preschooler just told me she wants to learn how to read, and my toddler is a force of nature.

    I gather all kinds of secular homeschool resources and share them at TheHomeschoolResourceRoom.com.

SecularHomeschool.com is a community and information source where secular homeschoolers ARE the majority.

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.
