Whatcom Homeschool Association is a network of over four hundred families supporting each other in the adventure of homeschooling in Whatcom County, the northwest corner of Washington State. The independent spirit of homeschool families coupled with a twenty-five-year-old support group combine with positive community relations to provide a richness of learning opportunities.
Homeschooling in Whatcom County has many faces. It looks like children in the woods exploring the wonder of the natural world, kids sitting around the kitchen table pouring through lessons, young people working alongside a parent on a project, and a family in their living room listening to a book being read aloud.
Officially, homeschooling is parents taking direct, active responsibility for the education of their children. To assure their children the widest variety of learning experiences, homeschooling parents may incorporate community classes, tutors,apprenticeships, volunteering, and public school classes, extra-curricular activities (e.g. fine arts and sports), and ancillary services (e.g. speech therapy).
