Make it happen!

Calling all homeschool moms with kids who are struggling!

That's likely every one of us, in one way or another. Whether that means they need to make new friends, make better friends or just have an opportunity to nurture Community relationships, we are all dealing with something. It's difficult to watch our kids struggle. In a perfect world, we'd be all they need but if you've parented for even a short amount of time, you already know that sometimes we need to bring in reinforcements in the form of positive outside influences.

The heart's cry we hear from so many of our families is that they need more opportunities to just hang out. We don't just want to be called Community but we want to be IN community. We can always use more community!

Did you know we have a Moms Dinner once a month? In case you are not familiar, a Moms Dinner is where we eat too many brownies (gluten-free and gluteny!) and get real with one another about messy houses and homeschooling. Sound good? Join us next month to learn all about how imperfectly awesome we are as moms! Come as you are, especially if you're in yoga pants and flip flops. Watch our Facebook page for details on upcoming dinners. It's a relaxed and encouraging evening with lots of food and fun!



Since moms are getting encouraged and full of brownies, we'd love to launch a similar social outlet for our kids. They meet and enjoy one another each week during classes but a half hour lunch period may not be enough time to cultivate some of their blossoming relationships. If you'd like to plan an event or field trip for Community homeschoolers (doesn't necessarily have to be educational!), please let us know and we can help you get the word out to all of the families in our network. We'd love to promote your event and let these kids enjoy some time just hanging out together. Past events have included trips to Sun Studios, Theatre Memphis and Windermere Farms. What will we do this year as a community?


Make it happen for the kids, homeschool mom! If you don't, no one will!

If you are interested in planning an event for the kids at Community, contact Heather at heatherlpj(at)yahoo.com with all the details so we can pass it on to our community.

Community Xtension

Community is excited to announce our newest venture and second location, Community Xtension. We have developed and tailored a tutoring program for a group of Olympic hopeful gymnasts at Gymstars in Collierville, TN! Community tutors will be working alongside a wonderful group of parents who began a new venture themselves of homeschooling their daughters. These hard-working girls have displayed the desire and potential to train for high level gymnastic competitions. Jenny, Heather and Suzanne are honored to be contributing to the journey of these talented young ladies as they endeavor to make their dreams come true!

BackStory: Community


Most of us probably didn't grow up being homeschooled. 

As homeschool families, we identify with one another as an extended family of sorts.



We get each other. 
We support one another. 
We NEED each other. 

And we need community. 

With this relationship in mind, 
we chose the name Community

As homeschool families, we take refuge in the knowledge that we are not alone but strive alongside an entire community of families whose hearts are with us.

Above all else, community is our standard.




Each homeschool-enriching tutorial has its own flavor and style. Community is definitely not one-size-fits-all because homeschool families are anything but generic. Our policy is to never try and talk anyone into our program but trust that the folks who need our special brand of community will find their way to us. 
From tutors to students, we are intentional with our approach to homeschool families. We've seen kids come to us who were having a hard time fitting in elsewhere but are thriving at Community. Our desire is to continue to make every student feel welcome and be a good steward of the trust families place in us.


If you are new to the home education community in the Memphis area, be encouraged about all the options available to your family! There are many strong programs in the Memphis area. While we are especially proud of ours, we invite you to explore all your options and find the place where you believe your family can thrive.

If you are interested in learning more about Community and what we offer, you are welcome to come see us at our Back to School Open House:
