As homeschoolers, we may want to do things our way, but we don’t always want to go it alone. Thankfully, there are plenty of ways for us to connect and one of my favorite ways is by joining Facebook groups for homeschoolers. In these groups, we can seek advice, get help, and grow friendships that wouldn’t be possible because of time or distance.
Yet sometimes, it’s hard to know where to start! With so many Facebook groups out there, where does an overwhelmed homeschool mom begin?
That’s where this comes in. I’ve asked around and have done all the leg work for you! In this post, you will find more than 25 homeschool groups on Facebook that are available and what their goals are to help you find the best options for you.
What Is The Point of Facebook Groups for Homeschoolers?
Groups on Facebook are places where people can come together, usually with a common purpose. Groups may be private, where only members can see what is posted, or public, where anyone can see what is posted.
Most groups require you to request joining and some even ask you to answer a couple of questions. Many will also ask you to read the pinned post and agree to follow certain rules.
The point or goal of the group is usually listed in either the rules or the pinned post. Some groups are open to anyone, and others have some limitations and restrictions.
Joining a group is always optional, but if you don’t follow the rules, there is a chance that whoever runs the group may ban you – this is why it’s important to join Facebook groups you know you want to be a part of.
Not All Groups Are Created Equally
It’s true. Some groups are very active and engaging, friendly and welcoming… others are not. The best way to tell if a group is for you is by reading the description, the rules, and joining. You can always leave a group that isn’t a good fit for you.
The Ultimate List of Facebook Groups for Homeschoolers!
As promised, here is a list of Facebook groups for homeschoolers. To keep it easy to navigate, this list is alphabetical and has short descriptions about each group.
I gathered this list 3 ways:

- I added groups I’m already in because I know the quality these groups provide.

Joining Facebook Groups For Homeschoolers
The biggest reason to join a Facebook group for homeschoolers is for you and your kids. In groups, you can gain a lot of help, wisdom, and advice. You can also form friendships and bonds that help you through your years of home education.
Homeschooling is not always easy but with Facebook groups you have other homeschool moms at your fingertips who can guide you with experience, make you laugh with a meme or GIF, and even simply let you know that you are not alone.
And for me, and thousands of other homeschoolers all over the globe, they are a place that is worth being in.
