Who we are


Many Paths of Natural Learning was founded in 2005 to fill a growing need in the homeschooling community: an umbrella group where people of all faiths, all backgrounds and all educational styles are welcomed and valued. Many Paths of Natural Learning - Eastern Shore carries on that tradition, as an umbrella group approved by the State of Maryland to oversee homeschooling, specifically serving families in Cecil, Caroline, Dorchester, Kent, Queen Anne, Somerset, Talbot, Wicomico, and Worcester counties. (For the central and western Maryland branches, please see the main MPNL group.) 


We are an inclusive group, and welcome member families from all backgrounds and educational philosophies.  We draw on the uniqueness of the family, focusing on commonalities and mutual respect as we all move along our shared journey: homeschooling.


Many Paths of Natural Learning believes that families and students learn best when self-motivated.  We believe that learning is a life-long process and homeschooling is a family adventure.


We recognize that each family is the expert in the best educational choices for their children. Our goal is that each family and student should follow their own path, based on their own strengths and learning styles.  We are honored to support our members in accomplishing this goal.


If you are interested in joining us as either an umbrella or support group member, please "Join the Discussion" in our forum and email list. You may also send inquiries through our web contact form, and we will get back to you as soon as we are able.
