Thank you for visiting our website. The Massachusetts Homeschool Organization of Parent Educators (MassHOPE) is a statewide organization dedicated to
Promoting and safeguarding home education to the glory of God
We offer information and support to homeschoolers from a Christian perspective. If you are seeking information regarding home education, browse our website and feel free to e-mail any questions to:
Not Back-to-School Picnic:
This has been a popular event for three years running at Trout Brook Reservation in Holden, Mass with up to 90 people attending. It was a great time of fun and fellowship. We're planning another one and hope to see you there. Click here for details.
High School Graduation:
Our formal graduation ceremony will be at Holden Chapel in Holden, Massachusetts at 2:00 PM on June 4, 2016. Last year we celebrated this milestone for more than 40 homeschool graduates. What an encouragement it was to those still running the race. What a testimony it was to God's faithfulness to see another fine group move on to the next stage of their lives. Please visit our graduation page for details, including deadlines for participation.
June 18, 2016 (tentative)
Our annual Used Curriculum Sale is tentatively scheduled for June 18 at Chapel of the Cross in Westboro, conveniently located near the Massachusetts Turnpike and routes 9 and 495. The sale is one of the highlights of our year, full of bargains and eager shoppers, as hundreds of homeschoolers seek out bargains to supply their needs for another year. Every year thousand of items, including loads of free ones, find new homes. Full details will be posted here soon.
- "In All Thy Ways Acknowledge Him and He Shall Direct Thy Paths" Prov 3:6 - April 23-25, 2015
Another great convention has passed. You missed a great time if you weren't there for our four general sessions with Mike Farris, Eric Ludy, Andrew Pudewa, and Steve Scheibner. Steve was scheduled to be the pilot on one of the planes that hit the towers on 9/11. Eric & Leslie Ludy conducted an inspiring teen track that also featured challenging sessions from Joel Grewe and Rick Boyer. There were more sessions this year than ever before and you can still order recordings here. Full details of this year's convention are on our convention page.
- 27th Annual Convention - Mark your calendars for this year, April 28-30, 2016.
Details will be posted soon on our convention page as they become available.
This is an issue of great importance to homeschoolers everywhere. Parental rights are increasingly threatened as more members of our judiciary begin to take cues from international law and custom. These are decidedly unfriendly to homeschooling. For more information and to join the battle to preserve parental rights, please visit www.parentalrights.org.
MassHOPE opposes any federal or state funding initiatives to support charter schools or other types of "public school at home" programs. Such programs undermine total educational freedom of parents. For further information on this subject, we suggest the DVD "The Trojan Horse" which explains these programs from our perspective. The DVD is available for $7 from MassHOPE. Order by mail from MassHOPE, 46 South Road, Holden, MA 01520 or call us at 508-829-0973.
