Welcome to Ohio Homeschooling Parents!

Ohio Homeschooling Parents is a state-wide homeschool support and information network.


We offer homeschooling compliance and notification information, and strive to encourage Ohio families in their right and ability to home educate their children. We value liberty and parental rights. 

OHP aims to provide connection, education, encouragement, and up-to-date information for current Ohio homeschoolers.  We also support those who are currently using the public school system (either physical or virtual) and are looking for help in transitioning to independent homeschooling.

About OHP

OHP was founded as a social media support network for Ohio parents who are homeschooling independently, or are seeking information about how to transition to the freedom of homeschooling from within the public or private school systems (either brick and mortar, or the e-school/charter public schools).  

Please note,  we are fellow homeschooling parents, not legal counsel. Information shared should not be taken as legal advice. We highly recommend being well-versed with the applicable administrative code and your rights to home educate. The regulation codes pertaining to Ohio homeschooling are linked on this page. We also highly recommend joining the Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA) if you experience any legal challenges. Contact us for a group rate code, if you are a member of OHP. 

At OHP, we welcome and affirm members who employ a wide variety of independent homeschooling resources, techniques and methodologies. We are a very diverse group - we are Christians and Atheists,  unschoolers, workbookers, traditional and eclectic, conservatives, liberals, and any other usual division typically found. We are (amazingly) united under one cause - we are passionate for our children and advocates for home education.   


Come join the conversation in the largest (over 11,000) and most diverse group of homeschoolers in Ohio -we’d love to have you!
