Our History

People often ask about the history of homeschooling in NY, and this story needs to be available for everyone to hear

As a start, we have posted the recording below, from LEAH’s 25th Anniversary celebration in 2009. This is a talk given by Sharon Grimes, one of the founding members of LEAH and Alice Blackwelder whose court case led to our freedom to homeschool legally here in NY.  We hope you are blessed as you listen.

​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.
