ACES Homeschool Groups
Whether you are a current homeschool family seeking a supportive and nurturing environment to supplement your child's education or you are new to the homeschool community, ACES Homeschool Groups can support you on your journey. ACES Homeschool Group is a division of All-In Consulting and Educational Services. We serve families in the far western suburbs of Chicago. Our program provides parents and children with additional support for their home education. Together we learn better!
ACES Homeschool Groups are classes (half day, whole day or individual classes depending on the age of the student) that meet in Oswego, IL. It is not a co-op, per se, in the sense that parents do not stay to assist in teaching. All classes are led by teachers; parents drop off students during the sessions. Groups are in session September-May.
