Virtual Homeschool International is an outgrowth of the Mid-Eastern Iowa Homeschool Association support group formed by Dr. Klein to make resources and information available to other homeschoolers in the state of Iowa (Now ICHEN, Iowa City Home Education Network) . Homeschool curricula tend to be expensive. And homeschool educators are usually already making sacrifices to be able to homeschool. Because of the great homeschool wave, and boom of new materials, many families are spending more than they can afford to provide their children with a high quality education. Virtual Homeschool International is intended to make a quality home education easier and more accessible for families.

Mission Statement

"As the parents of nine adopted children, several with special needs, we became aware of the need for low-cost high-quality homeschool curriculum. After having tried various programs online and purchased offline curriculums, we realized that most information in education was well established in times past. It became frustrating to see many other homeschool families as well as our own struggle with paying the high price of curricula and being priced out of the online homeschool option. Homeschool curricula tend to be expensive, and homeschool educators are usually already making sacrifices to be able to homeschool. Because of the great homeschool wave, and boom of new materials, many families are spending more than they can afford to provide their children with a quality education. Virtual Homeschool International is intended to make a quality home education easier and more accessible for families. It was for this reason Virtual Homeschool International was created. Our goal is to make quality homeschool available online to families choosing the online choice."

The designers and educators supporting this site have Ph.D.'s in Education and Instructional Design. Dr. Elizabeth Klein and her husband Dr. David Klein have nine adopted children, six of whom have special needs and are currently being homeschooled with this curriculum. Accordingly, this site is intended to be accessible to those with disabilities, and with older versions of equipment and software.

We would like give special thanks to MaryAnna Cashmore for all the hard work and time she and her children have put into making this site a better and more user friendly site. She has been tireless and patient as we worked through many site adjustments.
