    Hey--Dad of 3 (2 school age) in Charleston, SC. My wife and I previously homeschooled the oldest using a couple different religious curricula. The kids spent the last year in public school, but we are leaning towards going back to homeschooling this year (5th and 1st grades).

    Due to, well, a change in beliefs, we're trying to find a secular solution. Finding a curriculum doesn't seem to be a problem, but secular homeschool groups in the area aren't exactly ubiquitous.

    My wife, who will be doing the majority of the work, was hoping to find a coop/support group--anybody in the area know of one?

    Thanks in advance,

    Hello and welcome to the forums!

    Did you check out the SHS list of local groups?

    If you don't see one for your area, I would contact other nearby areas asking if they know of any groups. We live in a place with very few secular homeschoolers, so I tried all kinds of things.

    Also remember you don't need a homeschooling group for social interaction. There are lots of activities that kids can participate in that are open to all kids like, scouts, dance, karate, art/drama classes, Boys & Girls Clubs, YMCA/YWCA, library programs, organized sports and others things, depending on their interests. We have used this route in place of a homeschooling group.
