We appreciate the wealth of information and resources online. Thank you!

You are always prompt in getting back to me with my concerns and you always take the time to listen. I love knowing that you ‘get it’ because you also have homeschooled and have been in my place. It has been refreshing and encouraging knowing you are there!

I love the learning project template (for Quebec) and appreciate the communications I receive from HSLDA. Your updates are timely and informative.
