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!

September 2010 Picnic/Meet and Greet


Please join us on Friday, September 17, 2010 from 11:00a.m. – 1:00p.m. (or whenever we’re ready to leave) for a picnic at the William Harris Homestead in Monroe, GA.

From Athens, take Hwy. 316 to Hwy. 11, turn left, and the Homestead is just three miles down on the right.  (From Atlanta, turn right on Hwy. 11.)  It’s a beautiful 19th century Homestead with an original log house, barn, smoke house and other outbuildings.   View the website at www.harrishomestead.com

This event is free.  You just need to bring a picnic lunch for your family.  Please bring a blanket too – there are a few picnic tables, but there may not be enough seating for everyone.

Please note that this is NOT a tour of the Homestead.  It’s a picnic, and you are free to roam around and enjoy the grounds while you’re there.

Coordinator:  Shelli Pabis

The Red Clay Co-op welcomes any homeschooler to attend one, some or all of our activities!  We hope you can come!
