South African Homeschool Support

Details of South African homeschool support groups, egroups and websites.

South African Flag

Homeschooling in South Africa has only been legal since 1994, so it is a new phenomenon in our society.

As a result, compared to other countries, like the USA, where it has been practiced for much longer, there are relatively few homeschoolers in our country. The numbers are increasing, but in some locations, homeschoolers find that like-minded families are few and far between.

Many of us find our best South African homeschool support structures are online homeschooling communities. Online support groups are places that one can ask questions, get advice from more experienced homeschoolers and discuss the many family issues related to homeschooling.

South African Support Groups

Here we ask questions, share our experiences, ideas, new resources and more. You will be invited to join when you purchase a Footprints curriculum.
