Program Overview

Here at the Homeschool Hub, we partner with you to support your child’s homeschool education. We provide engaging courses that enrich your homeschool student’s development through opportunities to learn and grow in collaborative, hands-on classes. Our classes are capped at 15 students, with the exception of our Little Explorers and Cooking classes, which are capped at 12.

Official registration as a homeschooling student with the North Carolina Department of Education is required to participate in this program for all students 7 years old or older. We are unable to provide classes for students enrolled in public or private schools.

Our program aims to be an inclusive environment where all students can feel welcome and thrive. We train all of our teachers in meeting the needs of all types of learners, and we value parent partnerships to help meet the unique needs of each student. Additionally, while the Y is a Christian organization, we utilize secular curriculum in our classes and serve families from a variety of faith traditions and cultural backgrounds.

Fall registration opens April 3 for members (M), April 17 for participants (P)
Spring registration opens May 1 for members (M), May 15 for participants (P)
