South Suburban Homeschool & Gym Group Inc.
It was in 1988, three home schooling moms were prompted to set aside one day a week as a gym day to make sure that their children would benefit from much needed exercise. Each mom taught a different sport every month. Other families began to join in the same effort, and in 1995, co-operative classes were introduced to accommodate the large growth of the group. To optimize the sports skills being taught, there was a need to divide up the students according to their age. While the younger students had their physical education, the older students attended co-operative classes then switched.

We are blessed to say in 2001, we partnered with a local printing company and graphic designer to help us publish our first spiral bound yearbook. Ever since then, with the help of dedicated yearbook teachers and students, we have printed a full 70-90 page yearbook each year. Photos for the book are taken by our students weekly and each page is designed by the students. Below are just a few snapshots of pictures our students have taken during the past several school years.
We are blessed to say that since 2001, our group was officially granted a non-for-profit, tax exempt status [501(c)(3)]. This has provided grants for special opportunities for the children & the future growth.
Our wholehearted desire is to encourage and promote opportunities that will develop skills through sports, academics, and other creative activities for homeschooling families.
For 25 years we have been accomplishing these goals in a safe and healthy learning environment, working in a co-operative effort. Together we provide group instruction with a variety of sports, classes, and activities in a Christ-like atmosphere.
