What kind of group is PATH?
We are an old fashion face to face type of group. We believe that homeschooler need the support and interaction that only spending time together provides. We are not a co-op, we are not simply an email loop. We provide Ladies Nights Out, field trips, classes, theater tickets, year end testing, and other activites to fill your school year with support and fun.
How Frequently Do You Meet?
We have a Ladies’ Night Out once each month, a well as a field trip or activity for the students each month. There are theater dates several days throughout the school year and other activities, field trips, and classes that are available. There is not a mandatory number to participate in, nor is there a maximum. We recommend that you take advantage of the outing and activities offered to both the mothers and students, as they are there to help and support you in your homeschooling journey.
What are the ages of the children in PATH?
We have children from preschool age up through high school.
Do you offer playdates or park days?
We have at least one activity/play date each month and they vary month to month. There is not a set day to meet at a park and play.
What curriculum do you use/recommend?
Part of the joy of homeschooling is the ability to individualize the curriculum according to what works for you and your family. What works for one family may not work for another. We have several homeschooling veterans who would be happy to talk to you and answer any specific questions that you may have. Please take a look at different curriculum options here.
Why do you charge fees?
Nothing in life is free and that includes running a support group like PATH. Although we work to keep our fees to a minimum, there are some fees that we must pay. Registration fees help pay for administrative costs (including our website, PATH ID cards, postage, office supplies, etc), paper products for various events (napkins, cups, cutlery, etc.), supplies for our service projects (such as cleaning supplies), and a small donation to the church where we meet (the church allows us to meet and use its facilities for free).
