    7023978725_3ef5d7d88d_m-jpgWe're kind of in awe of 2012 around here. We've grown by over 700 members just since January 1st of this year and have bypassed the 5,000 member mark! If you are like us, you are jumping up and down because that means not only is the site growing - - but secular homeschooling in general is BOOMING!!

    Pretty soon, I suppose we will have to change our tagline from "Where Secular Homeschoolers ARE the Majority" to..."OF COURSE Secular Homeschoolers are the majority!!"

    We'd like to welcome all the new folks who have joined us recently, and then warmly thank all the wonderful members who have been hanging out here at SecularHomeschool.com for quite a while now - - some even since the very beginning three years ago! Our hope is that this site continues to remain a resource, a support, and a haven for those homeschooling for reasons other than religious ones. We feel honored to hang out with the amazing people who populate this site day after day.

    We're also excited to add that there are still new features and additions to the site in the works right now, and we can't WAIT to share them with you throughout the rest of this year. Thank you so much for being a part of this dream we had to create a special spot on the web for secular homeschoolers. It is an absolute pleasure to serve you here each day!!

    Sincerely,
    Topsy, Pandahoneybee, and aandwsmom - - Your SecularHomeschool.com Admins

    Hi everyone! We're making some nice improvements to the site that I have a feeling you will be really excited about when we share them all with you...but along with every site update always comes a few bugs. If any of you are experiencing difficulties with the site, the FIRST thing to do is to go into your browser and clear your cache. If you aren't sure how to do that, check this great Wiki-How article for instructions specific to your browser.

    Once you have cleared your cache, then completely close down your browser and reopen it before navigating back to SecularHomeschool.com. If that doesn't fix the issue you are having, then help us help you by sharing your problem in our Technical Issues forum. If possible, please let us know the following things when reporting your issue:
    • type of computer you are using (HP Laptop/iPad/Asus Netbook/etc)
    • your operating system (Windows 7/Mac OS X/Linux/etc)
    • your browser type (IE 7/Firefox 10/etc)
    • as clear an explanation of your issue as possible (screenshots are always helpful but not crucial)

    If someone else has already shared an issue that is similar to yours, don't hesitate to simply add a comment to a previous thread saying something like..."yeah, that's exactly the problem I'm having!"

    I apologize for any inconvenience you might be experiencing with the site or forums, and hopefully we will get ALL the bugs worked out ASAP. And the benefits will hopefully outweigh the short-term difficulties. Thanks for your patience, everyone!!

    site-news-jpgBased on suggestions and feedback from our members, SecularHomeschool.com has added a new forum section to our main forum page. This section is geared toward those who are homeschooling (or thinking about homeschooling) children in the middle school and/or high school grade levels.

    Approaches to homeschooling lower and upper grade levels can vary quite widely, so it will be helpful for parents of older students to have a dedicated place to discuss the ins and outs of curriculum, college prep, record-keeping, and just generally parenting an adolescent.

    As with all the forums, having a dedicated forum doesn't mean that every thread about homeschooling middle/high school HAS to be posted in the new section, but the hope is that members will be able to find grade-specific threads more easily and with less searching. I hope this will be a helpful and well-used addition to the site!

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.
