Advocates for Home Education in Massachusetts, Inc.


AHEM Contacts provide information and support and are happy to help new and active homeschoolers with general homeschooling questions, as well as field questions about the Charles guidelines and act as sounding boards for concerns in dealing with school officials. AHEM's resources allow Contacts to have a broad overview and solid understanding of Massachusetts homeschooling guidelines in theory and practice, as well as an awareness of hot spots and trends. AHEM Contacts are experienced homeschooling parent volunteers, not lawyers, and do not offer legal advice.

The first step to start officially homeschooling in Massachusetts is to submit an education plan to your local school superintendent or school committee.
