Calendar Submission Guidelines

We welcome your submission of local, secular homeschool events! This usually means events that ...

  1. are held during the daytime, on a weekday and during the school year
  2. are for homeschooled children ages 5 to 18 and/or for homeschooling parents
  3. are within or close to the Minneapolis-St Paul Metropolitan Area
  4. have no religious teachings (religious content from a cultural, historical, sociological or anthropological perspective is permitted) and welcome participants regardless of religious beliefs or lack thereof.

Our submission form for homeschool classes and events includes the most commonly asked questions raised whenever an event is posted, so please include all the information requested (unless it is clearly not applicable to your event).

If you prefer, you may submit your event via email instead.

Submissions may be edited for compliance with these posting guidelines or to fit our website formatting and style preferences.

If it's NOT a local, secular homeschool event, please read below for our policies. Please do not complete the Event Submission Form as all other events must be sent via email, if they are accepted at all.

Field Trip Opportunities

If you are submitting a field trip suggestion rather than an event, please use the Site Submission Form instead. You will need to set up an account or sign into your existing account before you can access this form.

Religious Events

As an inclusive secular group, Homeschool Adventures does not promote events whose audience is members of a single religion. Individual members of the Homeschool Adventures Yahoo Group may post about religious homeschool events provided that they clearly identify the religious nature of the event, but those events are not included on the website Calendar or shared via Facebook or Twitter.

Non-Local Homeschool Events

information on non-local homeschool events may be sent via email for consideration for distribution via the Homeschool Adventures Yahoo Group but will not be included on the website Calendar or shared via Facebook or Twitter. The more unique your offering, the more likely it will be chosen for distribution. Non-local non-homeschool events will not be shared.

Preschool Events

Information on local preschool events and classes may be sent via email for consideration for distribution via the Homeschool Adventures Yahoo Group but will not be included on the website Calendar or shared via Facebook or Twitter. The more unique your offering, the more likely it will be chosen for distribution. Parent-Child classes for preschoolers that also welcome siblings will receive more consideration than either drop-off preschool programs or programs that require parents to make other child care arrangements for children outside the target age range.

Summer Camps

Information on Summer Camps offered by organizations that regularly offer homeschool events and classes during the school year may be sent via email for consideration for distribution via the Homeschool Adventures Yahoo Group, but will not be included on the website Calendar or shared via Facebook or Twitter. Summer Camps offered by other organizations will not be distributed.

School Release Day Events

Information on School Release Day programs offered by organizations that regularly offer homeschool events and classes may be sent via email to be distributed to our members via the Homeschool Adventures Yahoo Group. Homeschool Adventures volunteers will not enter those programs on the website Calendar but may publish those programs if the organization completes the Event Submission Form. Please contact us before completing the form to be certain that it fits within our guidelines. School Release Day programs will not be shared via Facebook or Twitter.

School Release Day programs offered by other organizations may be sent via email for consideration for distribution to our members via the Homeschool Adventures Yahoo Group, but will not be published on the website Calendar or shared via Facebook or Twitter. The more unique your offering, the more likely it will be chosen for distribution.

After-School, Evening and Weekend Events

While these are outside our primary focus, information on after-school, evening or weekend local events and classes may be sent via email for consideration for distribution via the Homeschool Adventures Yahoo Group but will not be included on the website Calendar or shared via Facebook or Twitter unless they are exclusively for homeschooled families. The more unique your offering, the more likely it will be chosen for distribution.

Coop-Based Classes

If you are advertising coop-based classes, please use our Group Submission Form instead. Coop open houses and used curriculum/book sales may be submitted to the calendar, but all other events including classes should be promoted using our Homeschool Group Directory.

Tutors and Instructors for Hire

If you are submitting your services as a private tutor or coop instructor, please use our Tutor Submission Form instead.

Homeschool Adventures is a support network for homeschool families not a marketing group for local organizations. While it is exceedingly rare that an organization's desire to promote a local homeschool event conflicts with our members' desire to know about local homeschool opportunities, should a conflict arise, the interests of our members is our only priority. Should the Homeschool Adventures Leadership Council feel that your marketing material is incomplete, unclear, misleading or otherwise inappropriate, we may decline to share it with our members or opt to alter so as to best serve the interests of our members.
