To succeed in homeschooling, it is in your best interest to get involved with other homeschoolers. You should join a homeschool network or group near you. For this reason, I have decided to give a full listing of homeschooling groups throughout each state. Yes, there are other sites that list homeschool networks and support groups but none of are comprehensive. Some of them only list Christian, others only list those affiliated with them. I will attempt to list all of them.
In California, homeschoolers are required to register under and umbrella school or to start a private school to homeschool. The homeschool groups listed below consists of support groups, umbrella groups and homeschool groups. This list is long so please bear with me as I get them all listed.
