Welcome to HA.


Homeschoolers Anonymous (HA) is a project of Homeschool Alumni Reaching Out (HARO).

HA is a narrative-sharing platform run by former homeschoolers. HA contributors are an inclusive community interested in sharing our educational experiences. While the conservative, Christian homeschooling subculture is the primary focus of our contributors,  HA is a clearinghouse for all stories about homeschooling from any people who have experienced it — the good, the bad, and the ugly.

As a part of HARO, HA’s mission is to improve homeschooling for future generations through awareness and education, peer-support networks, and resource development. HA specifically implements the awareness and education aspect of HARO’s mission. The HARO board believes that knowledge is power. To that end we publish personal stories and testimonies about homeschooling experiences, historical and sociological studies of the modern homeschooling movement, and analyses of the ideologies and leaders that have shaped homeschooling in the U.S.
