The Art & Science of Homeschooling

Homeschool News Resource

Parent education and support is key to providing students with an amazing home education. North Carolina Homeschool-ology is dedicated to enabling parents to find resources, both local and global, that will support and inform.

Please visit the website! You will find: county listings for testing and tutoring, information about sports, events and activities.

You will also find links to resources and support groups for secular home educators, minority home educators and for unschoolers in North Carolina.

Articles include information on how to homeschool in our state, as well as highlights of resources and activities of interest to home educators.


We share homeschool news & reviews for all groups, without a devotional element in order to allow the focus to remain on home educators’ common goal of an excellent education for our children.
