Calgary Home Schooling Resources
This site lists home schooling resources in
the Calgary area (for Calgary, Alberta, Canada). Enjoy!
New Home Schoolers
If you are planning on home schooling this year, you should register with a home schooling friendly school board, by Sept. 30. This will allow you to get some funding for your home schooling expenses, and the school board you register with will get funding so they can provide more assistance to you.
Also, in the spring, and sometimes in the summer,
the home school friendly school boards have Information Sessions
(sometimes they call them Open Houses). These are great
sources of home schooling information in general, as well as specific
information about that school board. You can ask many questions.
These home school board people are very home schooling friendly.
They want to help you get started with home schooling. And most
of them are not pushy sales people - they want what's best for
the children and the families, and will try to help you find what
will work best for your family, often even if it means recommending
a different school board.
For fun, here are some interesting photos we took while home schooling:
The purpose of this website is to help new homeschoolers
get started, and to help all Calgary area home schoolers find
NOTE: While we have personal experience with many of the resources on this site, we don't have personal experience with "all" the resources on this site, so please choose carefully.
We started home schooling formally in 2001 (we home schooled informally for the previous 5 years, since our son was born, of course). We have been helping home schoolers through our website for 18 years, since 2004.
