About Us


REACH East is a non-profit organization whose purposes are:

  • to assist parents who are considering homeschooling to make an informed choice

Website / Email group

This website is for the REACH East support group. It is a communication tool for members; with it we can post announcements, be reminded of up-coming events on the calendar, and access important documents and forms.

This site is for REACH members only. It is intended to supplement the newsletter by keeping us informed about announcements and field trip information that can't make it into the newsletter due to deadline restraints. Please respect our membership by using discretion in passing along any information from this website to non-members.

There is a calendar on the site of the activities that are occurring each week. There are Resource Documents, including the Washington state homeschooling law, letter of intent forms and retail stores for curriculum and discounts.

After joining REACH East, you will be contacted by one of the REACH East members with more information about accessing this website. If you want more information before joining, you can contact us at info@reacheast.org.

We look forward to meeting you.
