Alberta Home Education Parents Society (AHEPS)

We are democratically run and inclusive. We aim to represent all home education families regardless of family shape, program choice, educational philosophy, socio-economic status, religion, ethnicity, culture, age, sexual orientation, gender or abilities. In addition to upholding parental autonomy rights per The United Nations Universal Declaration on Human Rights, AHEPS supports individualized education that meets the child's needs and interests
