What is a homeschool co-op? It’s a group of homeschooling families that meet regularly for cooperative learning in arts, academics, or any subject they choose. This is also one place where many homeschooled kids received their “socialization” – spending time with children of diverse ages and receiving instruction from adults who are not their parents. Some co-ops are free while others have nominal fees to cover the cost of supplies.

Is homeschooling legal in Kansas? Yes! While “homeschools” are not a recognized entity in the state of Kansas, homeschooling is perfectly legal. Your homeschool must be registered as a “Non-Accredited Private School” with the Kansas State Department of Education (unless you are using a virtual school program).

    Central Homeschool Families Ministry (CHFM) is one of Wichita’s longest running homeschool co-ops. I didn’t see it on your list, but perhaps you could add it? It has been a great resource for us and many other families!
