Our Story

The Pinellas Parent Educators Association is one of the oldest and largest support groups in the entire state of Florida. We have been around since 1985!  Our founding members were instrumental in getting our Florida laws in place to support our right to homeschool. We have both "heritage" and "history" so you can feel confident knowing we're here to STAY!

We have a stable yearly membership of over 300 families and we look forward to having you join us! After all, our purpose and pleasure is to serve you and to make your homeschool journey the best it can be!
