Southwest Virginia Home Educators

Promoting home education one family at a time!



We are an excited group of home educators who enjoy getting together to encourage other families on this wonderful journey. Our main goal is to offer support to families who home educate or are planning to do so in the Southwest Virginia area.  We primarily serve Grayson, Carroll, and the surrounding counties around Galax; but, if you're willing to drive, come join us!  Whether you are new to homeschooling or a seasoned veteran new to the area, we welcome you.  We also open our group to families with preschool-aged children who are considering the home education option.

Our leaders are Christian and our group promotes the values taught in the Bible.  However, regardless of your beliefs, you are welcome to join our activities.  We require all members to sign a code of conduct to ensure respect for everyone in our group. 

Moms' events & Park Days are open to everyone.  Members, invite your friends, or non-members may contact us for the latest activity so you can come meet some of our families.
