Houston Homeschool Groups

Jump to the Homeschool Co-op/ Group List


A homeschool co-op or group can be exactly what your family needs to round out their homeschool life. Fortunately, Houston is big! Which means there are a lot of options to find just the right homeschool co-op or group for your family. From religious, to secular, to park days, to science classes all around town families are coming together to give their kids the best experience and opportunities.

We do try to maintain a comprehensive list. However, like families, homeschool co-ops often adapt and change to meet their members’ needs. Sometimes a group is only around for a season. Often a playgroup will evolve into something more.

Further, membership requirements vary wildly. This is largely due to the fact that families are creating spaces where they want to grow and thrive and build community. All that just to say, it may take a few tries to find your fit or you may find that starting your own community is the way to go. That is largely where this page our groups come in.

Below we keep a running geographic list of active homeschool co-ops and groups in the Houston area. We try to provide a basic description to guide you in the right direction. Additionally, we maintain several Facebook groups. These are quite large and are a great place to ask questions and get recommendations – including about other groups. So, if you cannot find what you are looking for below feel free to join our groups and ask if anyone else knows of a homeschool co-op that focuses on the philosophy at Hogwarts or urban gardening or regular skate park meet ups or whatever community you would like to build or become a part of.
