Welcome to Homeschool Connections' 2020 Winter Semester!
First, read through the general Homeschool Connections news!
Then, each campus' announcements are listed.

Please read thoroughly every Friday!
Don't delay!
Register today!
2020 classes begin January 13!
A $50 registration fee has been added to your account for the Winter Semester. This must be paid along with any remaining balance on your account before you are able to register.

Also, this is the first year we did not have pre-registration for Winter Semester. This means your children are NOT currently enrolled in any winter semester classes, including "year-long" classes (indicated in the class title as "Sem 2" on each schedule). You will need to register for each "Sem 2" class in addition to the rest of your chosen classes.
