This page is dedicated to the many community offerings in the Ithaca and Tompkins County area which provides programming open to homeschoolers. You’ll find music lessons, library events, and other information from local providers. If you have questions or you’d like to add a resource please contact Heather at heather.woodie(at)ithacaleah(dot)org.
Note: I’ve mainly added organizations and lesson providers who have contacted me to make announcements with our group. I will be adding other information as this page develops.
