NOT JUST FOR KIDS
Mini unit studies that encourage parents and children to discuss and explore a wide variety of topics and projects together.
Local educational opportunities, field trip ideas, a summary of the state's homeschool law, the history of home education in Arizona, and an Arizona study guide.
Mission Statement: The purpose of Knowledge House is to provide families with homeschool information, educational resources, and supplemental tutoring.
Knowledge House Learning Resource Center offers homeschool resources, a lending library, classes and workshops, as well as individual tutoring and other benefits. These resources are open to all families who teach their children at home, regardless of support group affiliation or church attending. Homeschoolers can participate in educational activities, network with one another, compare curriculum, share teaching techniques, and learn about local support groups. We also strive to inform the homeschool community of pertinent events and legislative issues.
The Knowledge House website contains helpful homeschool articles, reviews, mini unit studies, a library of learning links and an Arizona study guide … plus a comprehensive listing of resources, services, suppliers, support groups, and field trip opportunities within Maricopa County and around the state. Many new and prospective homeschoolers have found our "Homeschooling 101" pages to be helpful and encouraging. This website has received praises from veteran home educators as well as non-homeschoolers from around the state and across the country.
