Local Educational Groups

Here in the Spring Hill area, we are blessed with such a large homeschooling community and many great resources and groups are available to help us as we homeschool. You will find a list of the resources below:
“Co-op” is typically a once-per-week event where families come together and offer classes and a parent stays onsite to help teach the classes. It is not a drop-off, and the costs are usually minimal. Below are co-ops that have requested to be listed and are currently accepting new families!

    DetailThe Wondercraft Collective homeschool nature group is a community where outdoor adventures in Tennessee foster curiosity and a deep appreciation for nature among homeschoolers of all ages. Our faith-based curriculum blends education with a love for our creator, offering activities like guided hikes, bushcrafting, nature journaling, STEM challenges, art projects, and engaging naturelore. These activities are tailored to different age groups from lower elementary to high school, ensuring that each student thrives. Parents play a vital role in our community, volunteering as small group leaders or helpers and potentially becoming Wondercraft Directors, leading their own groups. All materials are provided to support our parent leaders, who enjoy significant tuition discounts. Join us to explore, learn, and thrive amidst the wonders of nature.
A “Tutorial” hires tutors to teach certain classes to your children. It is a drop-off and tutorials are usually once or twice per week.

An “Enrichment Class” supplements your at-home curriculum. They can include but are not limited to music lessons, academics, arts and STEM classes.

“Sports and Recreation” are opportunities for students in the Spring Hill area to get involved in organized athletics. Some are open to the public, and some are specifically for homeschoolers.
