Welcome!

All Mid-Willamette Valley homeschoolers and people considering homeschooling are welcome here. Regardless of your religion (or lack-thereof), family structure, or homeschooling style – if you are in the area (or are considering moving here) and want to participate, join right in! The conversation is happening at the Salem Inclusive Homeschoolers Facebook Page.

We have created a place for all homeschoolers to connect, regardless of philosophy or style. Please read the FAQ. I hope you will help us make Salem an even more welcoming place for all types of homeschoolers in the area! If you’d like to know what a day in the life of homeschooling family is like, check out the blog! If you would like to contribute a guest post, let us know!

If you need help navigating the Oregon laws and connecting to resources, please browse this site and ask on the Facebook group.
