Montana Support Groups

One of the most valuable and important components of home education in Montana are the support groups. These are home educators in local communities that provide a wealth of knowledge gained from years of experience. For new home educators (or parents that are simply thinking about home schooling), these area organizations and leaders are available to provide important help. In some communities the support groups meet often, and in other areas there may simply be a valuable newsletter, announcing meetings and activities.
