Gifted Homeschoolers Forum offers resources, online classes

From time to time, parents ask me about homeschooling their gifted kids. Since this isn’t an option I’ve ever considered for my family, I rarely have any information to share.

But thanks to reader Christine M., I can now point you to at least one resource: the Gifted Homeschoolers Forum. GHF supports parents of children for whom traditional school isn’t the best fit. In addition to articles and lots of links to additional resources, GHF offers online courses for home-schooled gifted students.

I also am personally aware of two parents in the metro Atlanta area who are trying to form home-school groups for gifted kids. If you’re interested in getting in touch with them, e-mail me via the Contact page and I’ll share what I know.

    Thanks for sharing this information! GHF also lists local support groups at: http://www.giftedhomeschoolers.org/giftedresourceselsewhere.html There is nothing for Georgia – yet! – but new listings are always welcome!

    Christine M. sent me this additional information that she read in a neighborhood newsletter: Atelier School is a homeschool co-op for *intellectually gifted and high-achieving* students in grades 3 and 4. We meet five days a week in the Virginia-Highland area and ave a wonderful fully-equipped facility. In addition to offering the core academics, we also offer instruction in chess, Spanish, art, music and design & engineering. We begin classes Wednesday, August 22. Contact us! leavalencianoring@gmail.com
