Homeschooling classes in Pittsburgh can seem hard to find. When I began homeschooling I was slightly intimidated by the thought of attending a homeschooling class or co-op.

My initial thought was that there would be perfect moms there with perfect kids and that we would be out of place. Sometimes it still does feel that way, but more often than not, we are in spaces that welcome our family as part of Pittsburgh’s homeschooling community.

Here is a list of homeschooling classes and co-ops in the Pittsburgh region.
