People unfamiliar with homeschooling may think that homeschool students will miss out on some of the best parts of high school, and attending the prom is somehow at the top of the list. Never mind that many public school students may not ever be asked to this event, or may not have the courage or finances to ask someone to go with them. For those who think the teens who school at home will be scarred for life by what they miss, be encouraged to learn that homeschoolers create their own proms.
For over a decade, Phoenix area homeschool parents have organized a formal dinner and dance night for the high school students. This year, the event will be held in East Mesa and is open to homeschoolers and friends from around the valley. Three mothers are putting the pieces together so the teens can have a wonderful evening, and the cost is remarkably low for this type of occasion.
Attendees are urged to register and send in payment as soon as possible to give the planning committee a good count for the preparations, and to be sure that your spot doesn’t get filled.

A formal event such as a prom is a good way for homeschoolers to meet others their age and see that they are not left out of typical teen activities. It also provides a fun, wholesome environment in which students can attend as individuals, couples or groups of friends.
