Sonlight Connections

Building a community around your homeschool

Welcome!

This collaborative community is designed to provide support and encouragement on your homeschool journey. If you long for a community that provides educational enrichment, encouragement, creativity, fun, and friendship, Sonlight Connections is for you.

Connect In Person

You can now meet IN PERSON with homeschool families who share the same educational philosophy. Join an established Sonlight Connections group or create your own! These in-person groups are perfect for educational group projects, parent discussions about homeschool struggles or opportunities to just have fun with homeschool friends.

The in-person groups are fully owned and operated by the Connectors who start them with minimal guidance from Sonlight. A Connector decides where the group will meet, how often, and what the group will do at each meeting.
The map below shows where established groups are located.

Testimonials from our Customers

  For anyone not sure if they want to join, Sonlight Connections Facebook group has become one of my favorite homeschool groups! —Natalie W.
  I work from home, and this is my first year homeschooling. It can feel like a bit of a roller coaster. One minute I think this is the best decision we have ever made and then other times I get bombarded with doubts: Did we make the right choice? Am I enough for the kids? Will they learn what they really need? Sonlight's Facebook groups have been such a blessing. They help me get out of those anxious/doubtful times. I get so much encouragement from the other moms and dads who have the same struggles or questions that I have. — Amy A.
  This group has been such a joy for me this whole 1st year of homeschooling, but ESPECIALLY during this unusual time we all find ourselves in. So many of you make me laugh and I wish I knew you in real life! 🤣 And I LOVE to hear from all of you veteran Sonlighters because I gain so much wisdom and advice! Not many Facebook homeschool groups are as awesome as this one. Thanks for the breath of fresh air, All! Praying for you all! — Donielle G.
