Membership

There are two ways you can begin your membership in Homeschool New York. 

You can click the ‘Register’ button below, or you can contact our Regional Representatives for your area. Either way, our Regional Rep will help you get familiar with the resources available to all members, and will work with you and our local chapters to see if you can join one of them as well. A Homeschool New York Chapter typically provides opportunities to meet with experienced home educators, join field trips, attend or participate in athletic activities, and gain access to a variety of other events.

Membership in Homeschool New York is through a local chapter. A Homeschool New York Chapter typically provides opportunities to meet with experienced home educators, join field trips, attend or participate in athletic activities, and gain access to a variety of other events.

Homeschool New York Chapters are organized in seven geographic regions covering the state. Each region is overseen by its Regional Representative who also represents that region on the Homeschool New York Board of Directors. Please contact the Regional Representative in your area with questions about homeschooling, and for assistance in locating a Homeschool New York Chapter near you.

NOTE: This information is provided to assist families in locating a local chapter. It is not to be used for solicitation purposes. LEAH considers such activity to be a breach of ethics. If you desire to advertise to the NYS LEAH homeschool community, please contact our Media & Communication Director at The Messenger.

​We give you the tools to be a confident home educator!

Homeschool New York began in order to protect the God-given and constitutional rights to home educate in New York state, regardless of ones philosophy of education or religious affiliation, and to provide the necessary support for homeschool families.
