Eastside Academic Studies


Homeschool Support Groups

from their website

C.H.E.E.R. is a homeschool group of around 200 families in the Duluth, Georgia area.  Many of our members live in Norcross, Johns Creek, Alpharetta, Suwanee, and Lawrenceville areas with most of our functions occurring at the centrally located and beautiful facilities of Perimeter Church in Johns Creek.  We strive to support homeschool families spiritually, academically, and socially.

Most simply, we seek to bring "CHEER" to your homeschooling journey. We would love to have your family join us!
