Fredericksburg Area Homeschooler’s Association
FAHA (Fredericksburg Area Homeschoolers’ Association) began as more than a homeschool support group. It started as an intentional community, secular, close-knit, and like-minded. In 2003, the founders were immersed in attachment parenting, respectful parenting, and natural living. That is still strong in many of us, and has continued to inform our lives as our children grow. New members have been attracted to some or all of these values and interests. Now FAHA has grown too large for everyone to know everyone else like in the early days, but as our name says, we are an association of interest-led groups. This website is a place for homeschooling families to connect with other homeschooling families in the vicinity of Fredericksburg for clubs, events, classes, projects, activities, field trips, park days and whatever else interests you and your children.

Our co-op does not focus on the “3 Rs.” Our families teach academics at home and come to co-op for enrichment and social opportunities. Expect your students kindergarten and older to have classes in art, music and gym each year. Age-appropriate classes in the categories of science and social studies are also included but most are not intended to be comprehensive. Those ages will have 3 to 4 classes per semester. Preschoolers stay with the same teacher all morning. Three year-olds have a different, fun theme each Friday and four year-olds focus on a different letter each Friday. Classes that we offer may change from year to year. Every two years, we produce a musical performance.

Great Valley HomeSchool-house

Welcome to the Great Valley HomeSchool-House group of Roanoke! GVHH includes traditional classes of history, science, geography, and foreign language in each session, in addition to offering fun elective classes. Typically, teachers are parents of the students. We encourage all parents to teach, and the more volunteers we have, the more classes we can offer. Discounts are provided to those who teach! We seek to allow our children to learn with a hands-on approach, incorporating projects, activities, and manipulatives when possible. We also take field trips to enrich the learning experience. We want our students to have fun and learn at the same time. This is an eclectic group, and we do not follow any one curriculum or style of teaching. We now meet twice a week, on Tuesdays and Fridays, for 12 weeks each fall and spring. We offer classes from pre-K through high school. We do not require you to sign up for both days, as classes are “à la carte.” As we grow, we try to adjust to the needs of the homeschool community. We have holiday events and parties that are open to all members of the homeschool community, including the Great Valley Pumpkin Fest, a group favorite! We have also started having an annual used curriculum sale, cancelled this year due to COVID-19. This past year we produced our first yearbook, and we now have a website!
