Welcome to Saratoga LEAH

About Saratoga LEAH

Saratoga LEAH is a local chapter of New York State Loving Education At Home (LEAH), a statewide Christian homeschooling support group. The rest of this website is for members only, since it contains details of our group activities. In order to keep our families safe, this information is not shared with the general public. The information on this page is here to help you learn about our group, see what support we can offer, and decide if you want to join us.

We provide a variety of services and opportunities to our members, most of which are outlined below, in order to help our members in their homeschooling endeavor. Annual dues are $30 per family, half of which goes to the state organization, with the other half being used for our local activities.

Saratoga LEAH has parent support meetings on the second Thursday of each month at 6:30 p.m. at New Horizon Church located at 150 Perry Rd Saratoga Springs, NY. At the meetings we discuss topics that pertain to homeschooling, plan activities, ask for advice and suggestions, and share resources we have found. Parents can connect with others whose children are the same age and build a network of like-minded friends and fellow homeschoolers. We do offer separate childcare at the meetings for those who really need it, but the space is limited.

As a member of our group, some of the activities which you and your family can participate in may include:

  • Gym days
  • Cooperative group lessons
  • Young adults service group
  • Family fellowship dinners
  • Holiday parties
  • Field trips
  • Group-discounted activities

If you have questions about the statewide organization of which we are a part you can visit the NYS LEAH website. There is tons of information there including how to get started homeschooling, choosing curriculum, frequently asked questions (FAQs), etc. There is also very detailed information about what New York State requires of homeschoolers on the Regulations page.

We also highly recommend that you visit the website of Home School Legal Defense Association. Most in our group are members of this organization as well which advocates for the rights of homeschoolers in New York, nationally, and internationally. Their website is also a great place to find basic information about homeschooling and specifics for our state.
