There is no need to "go it alone" with so many available resources in the state of Florida. The F.P.E.A. (Florida Parent Educators Association) has a wealth of information available on its website, fpea.com
Below is a list of other home school support groups in Brevard County, some are 617 schools, some offer co-ops, and one (Brevard HEAT) gives students who are not enrolled in a private school an avenue to play high school sports with the F.H.S.A.A.
Sancta Familia Catholic Homeschool Network
Sancta Familia strives to provide Catholic homeschooling support through our local group for families in Brevard County as well as a network for Catholic homeschoolers in the state of Florida.
Sancta Familia Homeschool Support Network is for all local families, whether enrolled with SFA or with the county. The advantages of a support network are many. Fellowship, field trips, park days, classes, parent meetings, book fairs, seminars, and many other perks are available through local support groups. Sancta Familia wishes to include area homeschoolers in our planned events and extend the services we offer to the homeschooling community in Brevard County. As a support group member, you and your family are eligible to sign up for classes at our co-op*, attend parent seminars and meetings, form clubs and plan park days, join our students on field trips - or plan your own and invite other SFA families to join you, become members of the statewide FPEA, take advantage of our school resources, and much more.
SFA needs parent volunteers to help coordinate activities.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer for a leadership role.
When you join Sancta Familia's Local Support Group, you will gain full access to our member web site, receive a discount on FPEA membership, be able to print out student and teacher ID cards, and more. You may add umbrella school enrollment for an additional fee. The annual membership fee of $15 helps to cover our operating costs, including the member web site. Local members have the option of using our school building for an annual Facility Fee of $75 which will go toward rent, insurance, utilities, and maintenance of a location for books, classes, activities, and more. Your discounts on FPEA membership and SFA testing, combined with the homeschool-life website membership, make a local family membership in Sancta Familia well worth the price. In addition, member families have access to a huge library of books and homeschool curriculum, as well as online resources and links which can save you hundreds of dollars in homeschool material costs. Our new online curriculum access is another available option for local and distant families.
*Co-op membership requires payment of a facility fee and many of the classes and activities involve additional fees or tuition.
