Who We Are

Our Purpose:

We are a group of homeschooling families in the greater Fort Leonard Wood area joining together for the purpose of educating our children and supporting one another along the way. We are a diverse group of people from varying regions of the country and world with a depth of knowledge and understanding often unique to a military base. With these differences we can greatly enhance our homeschooling experience for our children and ourselves.

Who we are:

We are homeschoolers in the Fort Leonard Wood area who have come together to form a non-profit 501c3 organization for the benefit of the community.  We live in and around the post in the small towns in all directions.  We are active homeschoolers and volunteer our time for learning day, workshops, and field trips.

Learning Day:

Our current Learning Day is on Mondays at {The River}, in the youth building (previously known as the Connect Building).  For more information about our learning day please refer to the {Learning Day} page.


Our primary means of communication is our Facebook group and Facebook Messenger.   You can find us on Facebook here.  If we don’t already know you then we will ask you to briefly tell us about yourself before being added to the group.  Please check your other folder for a message from our Facebook page administrator.

Board of Directors:

Our board of directors are all volunteers, homeschool parents, and hard workers.  Like all homeschool parents, they began this journey in  different ways, but came together for the benefit of their family and yours.  With that in  mind, they serve the members of the Lost In the Woods Homeschool Association.  Each member serves for a term of 2 years, but no longer than 2 consecutive terms.   Many also teach classes and a short biography can be found on our Meet the Teacher page.
