Resource: Georgia Enrichment Program for Homeschoolers, Inc.

A big thanks to Jenn Casey for sending us this resource!

Georgia Enrichment Program for Homeschoolers, Inc. (GA-EPH) is located in Acworth/Cobb County.  It is a non-profit organization that has been organized by home educators to offer secular programs for all homeschoolers.  The instructors are independent contractors, so the class structure, fees and other characteristics may vary on a class-by-class basis.

This is a great program for those of you who live in in northwest Atlanta!

Secular Homeschool Curriculums

Recently I asked the members on the Secular Homeschoolers of Georgia (SHOG) list to tell me if they knew of any secular curriculums for homeschoolers.  I had a great response.  Thank you to all who took the time to respond!

The following is a list of secular homeschool curriculums, offering K-12 (except where noted).  I added a few others after doing some research on the web.

Red Clay is not endorsing any of these curriculums.  We offer them as a guide to help you find a secular curriculum that is right for your family.  You can find reviews for each of these on the web.

SHOG members also had great recommendations for resources in individual subjects.  I will work on a separate post for that.  I also received enough resources on Montessori to create a separate post on that.  Please be patient.

Feel free to leave a comment with additional resources or a note about your experience with one of these curriculums.  Thank you!

Sandy Creek Nature Center Homeschool Programs, Fall 2010

I saw this on the Athens e-mail list and thought it would appropriate to list on our site.

Once again, Sandy Creek Nature Center will offer a series of programs for homeschool students and a parent/guardian ages 5-12. This fall, we are
offering 4 programs, Fridays, September 17-Wacky Weather, October 15-Rocks Rock!, November 19-Time Traveler, December 17-Astronomica Adventures from 10am-Noon.

Students will explore interactive learning stations as they arrive. Afterwards, we will divide the group based on age (usually 4-6, 7-12 years) so one group will participate in the lesson while the others go on a hike or do another outdoor activity. After each program, we provide follow up activities that families can do at home. Families can sign up for one or all four programs. Fee is $2 ACC residents, per student, $3 Non-residents, per student. To register, call Sandy Creek Nature Center, (706) 613-3615 X0.

If you don’t already subscribe to Andrea Hermitt’s articles on Atlanta Homeschooling Examiner, you may want to do so.  She posts about upcoming events in Atlanta and other newsworthy items regarding homeschooling.  Today she posted about upcoming events and classes for homeschoolers at some major venues.  Some of them are certainly worth the drive.  Check it out here.
