We are so happy you are interested in learning more about The Orchard Homeschool Fellowship!
We are committed to homeschooling and encourage one another through a cooperative style of education.
At least one parent from each family is expected to take on a teaching/helping responsibility during the year.
We offer classes from nursery age through middle school. Nursery is avaibale to families with grade age children.
We meet every 1st and 3rd Fridays from September through April from 10 am until 2:30 pm.
We also love to gather for field trips in between our formal meets. Parents get together about once a month for encouragment, prayer, ideas, and any class/group updates.

A little about our coordinator: Erin Gowin
Erin and her husband Matt have been a part of the Skinquarter Baptist family since January 2020. Matt serves as the Associate Pastor of Student and Family Ministries. They felt a strong calling to homeschool their children when they brought their oldest home from the hospital in 2011 and has continued to do so. Before having children she completed her BA in Fine Art and worked in the public school system with the special education depatment. She has served in serveral children's ministries with her church family. During the summer of 2020 she saw a growing need to serve the homeschooling families in the Moseley area which The Orchard Homeschool Fellowship started to florish into a ministry. Erin is blessed to be a part of the growing homeschooling community and has a strong calling to connect and serve other homeschooling families along with their four children, Isaiah, Abigail, Katharina, and Jacob.
