Explore Homeschooling

Wow! what a changing world. With schools constantly changing rules and regulations due to covid  many Manitoba families are seriously looking at education alternatives and in particular homeschooling.

  • Are YOU suddenly looking into homeschooling?
  • Are YOU wondering about curriculum, legal requirements, and where to get started?
  • Are YOU overwhelmed by the thought of keeping your kids at home and taking complete control of their education?

MACHS is here for you. We have been helping families since 1983 and we believe there is a huge opportunity for Manitoba families to start homeschooling and be successful.

We have provided opportunities for you to learn from homeschool speakers and parents who want to share their experiences with you. We want you to have the information you need to make the right educational plan for your family.
