Why Should I join a support group?

They offer like-minded families the opportunity to get together for field trips, mom’s meetings and activities. Some are based on educational philosophies or are simply a way for families to connect. They also help families stay informed of actions each individual family may need to take in regard to legislation that would adversely affect home school freedoms.

THE Leadership Coalition currently serves over 34 groups in the Northeast OK. Area. The groups listed on this page are accepting new members.

If you are looking for a church based or limited membership support group, you may contact Linda Duntley at 322-3984 for a referral.

Limited Enrollment Schools/Tutorials

Augustine Christian Academy

Augustine Christian Academy is a non-denominational, Classical School dedicated to helping parents
prepare their children to follow God’s calling in their lives. Although the school offers a full-time program for parents who chose this option, it has always offered parents the choice of sending their students for as many or as few classes as they wish. SAA is unique in its classical approach, but it is also unique in how well it welcomes and supports home-schooled students. Students who are enrolled in at least one class have the opportunity to participate in many other school functions including athletic and academic competitions, house parties and activities, performing arts productions, chapels, Bible study groups, House leadership, and even graduation ceremonies. This makes SAA ne of the best values in town for home schooling families. Contact the school at 832-4600 or through its web site at for more information www.acatulsa.org

Classical Conversations
If you are a veteran homeschooler or even just considering homeschooling, you may
want to know about a model of education that has transformed western civilization:
the classical model of education. The classically educated child is in good company;
Shakespeare, C.S. Lewis, and the Founding Fathers were all educated by using this
timeless method. If you’d like to hear about how the classical model can be
reclaimed in your homeschool, we invite you to attend an Information Meeting for
Classical Conversations
