Although NICHE cannot certify that each and every local support group on our list is Christ-centered, we continue to provide referrals. We urge you to take the family-based responsibility to prayerfully investigate and consider potential support groups – not only as sources of organized activities and services, but also as powerful instruments of influence.

G Suite Access for Your Homeschool Co-op

G Suite for Education (GSfE) is now available for free to homeschool co-ops. Co-ops may gain access to the program by receiving a code from their state’s homeschool association, NICHE (Homeschool Iowa).

To be eligible, co-ops must meet the eligibility criteria for the program with Google, HSLDA, and NICHE. Co-ops must be nonprofit organizations in Iowa, have website addresses, and provide services to students for two or fewer days a week.

Email Us for Your Code

NICHE (Homeschool Iowa) is a strong advocate for the privacy rights of homeschool families. We believe that families should do their own research on the privacy standards of any program before sharing their child’s information online. It is important that co-op leaders remember that as with all free programs, the FREE offer can cease to exist at any time.

You can read Google’s Privacy and Security policy on their website.

Do you have questions about the privacy of your student’s data in G Suite? Contact HSLDA.


Where there is no guidance, a people falls,
but in an abundance of counselors
there is safety.
