The Guam Home School Association is a homeschooling support group led by conservative Christains, with a diverse group of members from other faiths. We are not a school, nor an accrediting/regulatory agency. We are simply a group of moms and dads who seek to encourage one another as we each home school our children.
Our purpose is to provide the support and guidance necessary to effectively home school in accordance with Guam’s public law and within the guidelines of our Statement of Faith, Statement of Purpose and Code of Conduct.
Special events, programs, and classes are made possible through the efforts of volunteer members. These events provide the opportunity for educational excellence, character development and socialization skills that bring about a well-balanced, wholesome and enjoyable homeschooling experience.

A good representation of the military community, federal hires and other homeschooling groups can be found in our group.
