Alberta Homeschooling Association
Alberta Homeschooling offers support, information and advocacy in order to grow homeschooling in the Province of Alberta
Alberta Homeschooling advocates for equitable, sustainable funding and reduced regulation. Our vision is to seek the same opportunities for homeschoolers that school children already enjoy. We believe that teachers are education professionals in the classroom and parents are educational professionals in the home.
We are a grassroots community that runs on donations and fund-raising. We don't need a lot of money to get things done.
To become a member, just sign up for our newsletter. You will be anonymous and not be listed on a facebook group. We will keep you posted on government updates and changes in the homeschooling landscape.
Who We Represent
We are inclusive and welcome anyone interested in homeschooling or learning more about this exciting, growing educational alternative.
We will not share or sell your information.
Do you have a child that is unmotivated in school? (It's not your child or the teacher's fault!)
Are you worried that the school curriculum is not relevant in today's society? (We still do not have mandatory coding lessons. This website was coded by homeschoolers.)
Do you think your child would thrive if you pulled them out, but are scared to homeschool?
Don't worry - you can do it! You will not mess your child's education up! Every parent homeschools their child from birth to at least age six. You can continue!
We are a non-profit community of people interested in homeschooling in Alberta. Welcome! We are pro-education and believe that academic and social learning occurs outside the four "B"s of school systems: buildings, buses, budgets and bottoms-in-seats. School is only one way to acquire an education. There are many others ways to learn and home education is a valid method which enhances children's innate love of learning.
