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.

Spotsylvania Regional Christian Homeschoolers (SRCH) is for Christ-centered homeschooling families living in or around Spotsylvania County, Virginia. Since 1997, SRCH has had an active core membership that has orchestrated social and educational activities for children and parents. Families benefit greatly from the fellowship and encouragement of one another. Our goal is to provide a familiar “family” of friends to walk with in this homeschool journey.

Our recent activities include parent meetings, nature days, a chess club, volleyball, park days, field trips, a science fair, an international day, a used curriculum sale, skating, and a gingerbread house party and other seasonal celebrations. All members are encouraged to plan activities and share their talents.

If you are new to homeschooling or new to the area, we would like to offer you a free and easy access point for information and fellowship with other local Christian homeschoolers.

Susan Whiteis
St. John’s Home Educators

We are a private group of homeschooling families based at St. John the Evangelist Church (Warrenton, VA), a Roman Catholic parish of the Diocese of Arlington (VA). Under the spiritual direction of our pastor, our primary mission is to support each other’s vocation as principal and primary teachers of our children through prayer and works of mercy, as well as educational, spiritual, and social activities. As parents, we have primary responsibility for the spiritual, moral, and educational formation of our children. “The fruitfulness of conjugal love extends to the fruits of the moral, spiritual, and supernatural life that parents hand on to their children by education” (CCC 1653). “The home is the first school of Christian life and ‘a school for human enrichment.’ Here one learns endurance and the joy of work, fraternal love, generous—even repeated—forgiveness, and above all, divine worship in prayer and the offering of one’s life” (CCC 1657). We are mindful that we are part of the greater community of faith at St. John the Evangelist Church, and that, as members of the Mystical Body of Christ, we seek to cooperate with the Church “for the sake of its growth and life” (CCC 910). With this in mind, we strive to be faithful to the voice of our Head, Jesus Christ, through the teaching authority of His Church.
