Region 5

Welcome to Region 5!

The greater St. Louis area is a wonderful place to homeschool! There are many support groups, resources, cultural and educational events and activities from which to choose. Whatever your family is looking for, you will find it in Region 5.

A fabulous online resource guide is available at This guide lists tons of information broken down by various categories to make it easy for you to find the types of groups and resources you are looking for. This is one of the best and easiest ways to get the information you need in order to take full advantage of what our area has to offer home educating families.

Currently FHE doesn't have regional directors in Region 5, but we are still here for you. You can get in touch with us through the state FHE contact information, 877-696-6343 or, and one of your FHE Board members will get back with you soon. 

2017 Greater St.Louis Area Home Educators Expo
March 30 - April 1, 2017 

Cancelled for this year

Go to: for more information!!!

The following is an Email from Expo Board 

After much prayer and consideration the Expo Board has decided that it is necessary to cancel the 2017 spring conference.  The amount of time required to produce the quality-type conference provided in the past years is not available to the current board at this time.

Watch for upcoming announcements concerning speaker and specific seminar presentations that will be sponsored by GSLAHE and scheduled throughout 2017.

Exhibitors will be receiving an email with a request for where to send their refund for booth space reserved. Thank you to our faithful exhibitors! We were near sold out of space!

Please consider attending the SHEM conference in Springfield, MO the MPE conference in Kansas City, MO or the APACHE conference held in Peoria, IL. 

If you are interested in volunteering in any capacity for the next Expo, please contact any GSLAHE board member. It would be especially appreciated if you have never volunteered in any area, but have attended and enjoyed the Expo in the past. We have a list of committed volunteers who serve every year. But that list needs to grow to lighten the load for all.

GSLAHE is a non profit organization run entirely by volunteers.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact any of the board members listed below.

God Bless,
