Empowering Homeschooling, Building Community

At HEMS, we believe that a strong foundation begins with a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. Our mission is to equip homeschooling families with the tools they need to thrive. We aim to create a positive homeschooling experience that aligns with Scriptural principles, nurturing children for a purposeful life devoted to God. The group is currently being organized by Jeff and Stephanie Jackson.

  • Connect and Flourish: In a fast-paced world, we recognize the need for homeschooled families to connect. HEMS provides a nurturing environment where you can share your triumphs, learn from one another, and build lifelong friendships.
  • Inspiring Events: Be a part of our exciting lineup of events, workshops, and seminars designed to enrich your homeschooling journey. From hands-on activities to thought-provoking discussions, HEMS events are where learning and fun collide.

  • Engage Beyond Borders: While HEMS is rooted in Christian values, our arms are open to all homeschooling families across the Halifax Regional Municipality and beyond. Let’s learn and grow together!
