GHF Families are pioneers in homeschooling. Our community started out of the need to create learning environments for our children to thrive. Here we are fifteen years later and we have developed an experienced community that now spans multiple generations. The heart of GHF is the steady influx of new families seeking help. Gifted and 2E families have built an infrastructure for ourselves to be in charge of our lives, to develop our own sense of agency.
GHF’s community is the result of volunteer families collectively working together to develop family agency. Most families were and are reluctant to make these changes. We come together and share resources, seek and receive information, and build the next generation of veteran families that are here to support the newcomers.
Our new generation of families is now learning that educating our children is about choosing from a wide palette of options that start with families taking control. It doesn’t have to mean pulling children totally out of school anymore either unless that is what you want to do. It’s about your choices.

Young Scholars Academy helps neurodiverse students learn engaging content that aligns with their passions to ignite within them a love for learning. Unlike their current schools, we take a fun approach to education in which learning is built around what students actually care about, not what they “ought” to know.
We offer regular online programming that meets once a week and allows students to delve deeply into complex topics, receive tailored support/differentiation, develop Social-Emotional Learning skills as they connect with peers in our neurodiverse tribe, develop Executive Functioning skills that are cultivated in the context of our strength-based learning, and we HAVE A TON OF FUN WHILE WE'RE AT IT!
Some courses include: Speech and Debate: Powers of Persuasion, Young Entrepreneurs: From Dreaming to Doing, Young Writers: Storytelling Through Pixar, Young Biologists: Creatures of Habitats, 2e AP: AP US History, 2e AP: AP Government and Politics, Young and Thriving: Skills For Life Beyond High School, Young Investors: Crypto and Stock Sim, Talking Like TED: Public Speaking, and Mathlandia: A Quest-based Math Game.
While the course topics and fun teachers are ultimately what entice the kiddos, our parents enjoy having their students work with experts in the field that nest learning-to-learn skills within the content. In other words, our classes are about so much more than what the titles would suggest =)
