CO Homeschool Days Fair - June 4 - 10am-2pm

A Message From the Founders

Homeschool Days was an idea that started in January 2020 with a goal to support the homeschool community. At that time we were a homeschooling family of seven, with our children ranging from toddler to highschool freshman. Like many of you, we started our homeschool research when our first child was still in the belly. We’ve since added another little one to our crew, born in 2022, and look forward to many more years of learning alongside our children.

When we began developing HSD, our hope was to accomplish several important goals:

  • Provide a way for homeschoolers to support fellow homeschoolers (including alumni) during every part of their journey.
  • Make finding resources easier.
  • Make finding local groups and programs easier.
  • Make finding homeschool events easier.
  • Make finding volunteer and job opportunities for homeschool students easier.
  • Financially support homeschool programs and students through educational grants.
  • Create ways for homeschoolers to support homeschoolers.

We are also big fans of homeschooling remaining private, with little to no restrictions, in order to allow families the flexibility to instill a love of learning within each child, and to choose methods and paths that best suit each child’s needs. We understand the concerns of many veteran homeschoolers who have fought and continue to fight for pro-homeschool laws and parental freedoms.

Personally, we’ve been blessed with wonderful friendships and mentors who’ve helped us, and continue to help us maintain a healthy and peaceful family rhythm through the seeds of wisdom and knowledge they’ve planted into our lives. There is so much value in gleaning from the experience and guidance of others, so we hope HSD will do for you what our mentors have done for us. We hope you will both give and receive value from the HSD community. And, we hope the best for your homeschool days.

Blessings from our family to yours,

The Scotts
