TOGETHER is the oldest support
group in the Arlington, Massachusetts area. We welcome all families. Our
vital, active membership of over 200 families has children in a wide range
of ages from infants to teens. As a group we do not endorse any one resource,
method or philosophy over another. Homeschooling is the ultimate individualized
education, allowing each family to find what works for them. Member families
homeschool in a wide variety of styles, from child-led philosophies and
self-created eclectic programs to purchased curricula. Information is
given for your own evaluation and as a starting point for your own homeschooling
A small sampling of group activities includes regular park days, field trips, a preschool playgroup, an annual craft fair, support meetings, winter ice skating, classes, beach days, and a yearly May Day celebration. The group exists as a framework for networking, communicating and supporting each other. Activities are dependent on the unique energies and interests of individual members. We encourage everyone to share their skills, talents, ideas, and resources. Organizing field trips, hosting meetings or potlucks, or offering classes are just a few examples of potential contributions to group vitality.
