Granite State Home Educators Resources
Granite State Home Educators is an all-volunteer, nonprofit homeschool support organization that serves New Hampshire families who choose to home educate their children.
GSHE has a robust website with resources to help prospective and current homeschoolers through their home ed journey. Our FAQ, Where to Begin, and Homeschool Methods pages are the ones many parents turn to first to get started.
Families can sign up for our free monthly e-newsletter at our website; here are past issues. Each one is packed with encouragement, educational and social opportunities, and relevant news.
We also have over a dozen videos that provide a summary of the (simple) requirements as well as several that go deeper into common questions and topics.
Prior to Covid closures, GSHE hosted nearly 30 in-person Intro to Homeschooling discussions around the state. When the weather improves or venues reopen, we are happy to schedule more with local libraries and community groups, either in socially-distanced settings or outdoors. In the meantime, we can host virtual events with groups who would like to partner to support area homeschoolers.
GSHE has several Facebook groups that empower families to plug in where they best fit.
Granite State Home Educators — Our primary group for supporting home educators around the state.
Granite State Home Educators Marketplace — Our group that brings together buyers and sellers of homeschool resources.
GSHE Unexpectedly Homeschooling — A group to support families dealing with remote learning and exploring educational options.
GSHE Homeschool Pod Connections — A group to help bring together families looking to form home-based learning communities such as homeschool pods and microschools.
GSHE Action — This is our group specifically for tracking and discussing legislation related to home education.
Families Helping Families — Specifically for families who have children with special needs, not just for homeschoolers.
