State Organizations and Local Homeschool Groups

by Mary Ann Kelley

Massachusetts Homeschool Organizations & Support Groups

Since homeschooling is regulated at the state level, connecting with local homeschoolers is an important step to start homeschooling in Massachusetts. State homeschool organizations and local homeschool groups are not just a good place to learn the specifics of legally homeschooling in Massachusetts—they can also help you to get connected with the local homeschooling community. Many homeschool groups offer co-ops, classes, sports and arts opportunities, and social get-togethers.

Our listing of Massachusetts state organizations and local homeschool groups is ordered alphabetically by city, with statewide organizations listed first. If you would like to submit a group, you may do so using the red button above.
