HSGS (Home Schooling Gifted Students) is a support group for families dealing with the challenges of home schooling gifted children. Many support groups exist for home schooling, and many exist for gifted issues. Founded in 2002 in Evanston, IL, HSGS is one of the few groups to combine these two challenges. We encourage parent meetings and organize classes, field trips, and fun events at which our children can develop friendships with true peers - something that is critical to the healthy development of gifted children. If you live in the Chicago area and are interested in or currently home schooling a gifted child, please join us! We have no requirements, other than a supportive attitude regarding the challenges of home schooling gifted children. Please let us know the ages of your children and provide a brief description (whatever you would feel comfortable sharing) of your home schooling experience or expectations when you contact us. We look forward to hearing from you.
